The lengthy 5' nontranslated region (5'NTR) of hepatitis A virus (HAV) forms a highly ordered secondary structure, which has been suggested to play an important role in controlling viral translation by allowing for translation initiation by internal ribosome entry. To test this hypothesis, synthetic bicistronic RNAs, with all or part of the HAV 5'NTR in the… CONTINUE READING
