AbstractAim:To substantiate the in vitro translational studies of a cross-kingdom, internal ribosome entry site (IRES), the 5′ untranslated region of the Rhopalosiphum padi virus (RhPV), can function in mammalian cells and act as a shuttle IRES between insect cells and mammalian cells.Methods:Cytomegalovirus (CMV) promoter-based bicistronic mammalian cell… CONTINUE READING
