BACKGROUND AND AIMS Translation of hepatitis C virus is an essential step of viral replication and is mediated by an internal ribosome entry site. We previously reported that the hepatitis C virus internal ribosome entry site is most active during the synthetic (S) or mitotic (M) phases and lowest during quiescent (G 0 ) phase. Here, we investigated host… CONTINUE READING
