The interaction between VPg of turnip mosaic virus and wheat germ eukaryotic translation initiation factors eIFiso4E and eIFiso4F (the complex of eIFiso4E and eIFiso4G) were measured and compared.(More)
Potyvirus genome linked protein, VPg, interacts with translation initiation factors eIF4E and eIFiso4E, but its role in protein synthesis has not been elucidated. We show that addition of VPg to(More)
Pokeweed antiviral protein (PAP) is a type I ribosomal inactivating protein (RIP). PAP binds to and depurinates the sarcin/ricin loop (SRL) of ribosomal RNA resulting in the cessation of protein(More)
In wheat germ, the interaction between poly(A)-binding protein and eukaryotic initiation factor eIF 4G increases the affinity of eIF4E for the cap by 20-40-fold. Recent findings that wheat germ eIF4G(More)
