Many plant RNA viruses contain elements in their 3' untranslated regions (3' UTRs) that enhance translation. The PTE (Panicum mosaic virus-like translational enhancer) of Pea enation mosaic virus (PEMV) binds to eukaryotic initiation factor 4E (eIF4E), but how this affects translation from the 5' end is unknown. We have discovered a three-way branched element just upstream of the PEMV PTE that engages in a long-distance kissing-loop interaction with a coding sequence hairpin that is critical… CONTINUE READING
