The 3' proximal translational enhancer of Turnip crinkle virus binds to 60S ribosomal subunits.
During cap-dependent translation of eukaryotic mRNAs, initiation factors interact with the 5' cap to attract ribosomes. When animal viruses translate in a cap-independent fashion, ribosomes assembleExpand

Structural Domains within the 3′ Untranslated Region of Turnip Crinkle Virus
ABSTRACT The genomes of positive-strand RNA viruses undergo conformational shifts that complicate efforts to equate structures with function. We have initiated a detailed analysis of secondary andExpand

Evolution of virus-derived sequences for high-level replication of a subviral RNA.
Turnip crinkle virus (TCV) and its 356-nt satellite RNA satC share 151 nt of 3'-terminal sequence, which contain 8 positional differences and are predicted to fold into virtually identicalExpand

Yeast Gis2 and Its Human Ortholog CNBP Are Novel Components of Stress-Induced RNP Granules
Although a CCTG expansion in the gene encoding the zinc knuckle protein CNBP causes a common form of muscular dystrophy, the function of both human CNBP and its putative budding yeast ortholog Gis2Expand

Biased Hypermutagenesis Associated with Mutations in an Untranslated Hairpin of an RNA Virus
ABSTRACT The mutation frequency of Turnip crinkle virus can increase 12-fold without inducing error catastrophe. Lesions in a hairpin repressor frequently reverted and led to second-site alterationsExpand

Callus cultures of Arabidopsis.
Protoplasts are plant cells lacking cell walls. They can be generated from stationary callus cultures derived from Arabidopsis thaliana seedlings. After treatment of the callus with cellulase andExpand

The 3 9 proximal translational enhancer of Turnip crinkle virus binds to 60 S ribosomal subunits
During cap-dependent translation of eukaryotic mRNAs, initiation factors interact with the 59 cap to attract ribosomes. When animal viruses translate in a cap-independent fashion, ribosomes assembleExpand
