Cation-dependent folding of 3′ cap-independent translation elements facilitates interaction of a 17-nucleotide conserved sequence with eIF4G
The 3′-untranslated regions of many plant viral RNAs contain cap-independent translation elements (CITEs) that drive translation initiation at the 5′-end of the mRNA. The barley yellow dwarfExpand

The 3′ Untranslated Region of a Plant Viral RNA Directs Efficient Cap-Independent Translation in Plant and Mammalian Systems
Many plant viral RNA genomes lack a 5′ cap, and instead are translated via a cap-independent translation element (CITE) in the 3′ untranslated region (UTR). The panicum mosaic virus-like CITE (PTE),Expand

Plasmodium knowlesi: a superb in vivo nonhuman primate model of antigenic variation in malaria
SUMMARY Antigenic variation in malaria was discovered in Plasmodium knowlesi studies involving longitudinal infections of rhesus macaques (M. mulatta). The variant proteins, known as the P. knowlesiExpand

Plasmodium vivax Parasite Load Is Associated With Histopathology in Saimiri boliviensis With Findings Comparable to P vivax Pathogenesis in Humans
Abstract Background Plasmodium vivax can cause severe malaria with multisystem organ dysfunction and death. Clinical reports suggest that parasite accumulation in tissues may contribute toExpand

The Panicum mosaic virus-like 3' cap-independent translation element: A translation enhancer that functions in mammalian systems
In canonical eukaryotic translation initiation, the recognition of mRNA by the translation machinery is facilitated through the binding of the 5’ m7G cap structure to eukaryotic initiation factor 4EExpand
