Control of translation reinitiation on the cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV) polycistronic RNA.


Translation of the polycistronic 35S RNA of CaMV (cauliflower mosaic virus) occurs via a reinitiation mechanism, which requires TAV (transactivator/viroplasmin). To allow translation reinitiation of the major open reading frames on the polycistronic RNA, TAV interacts with the host translational machinery via eIF3 (eukaryotic initiation factor 3) and the… (More)
