Cap analysis of the late 26S Semliki Forest viral mRNA reveals that almost 30% of the caps possess both a methyl group at the N(7)-position and one at the N(2)-position. We have compared the degree of methylation of the caps of polysomal and non-polysomal 26S mRNA in order to check whether this feature is responsible for its translation late in infection… CONTINUE READING
