The picornaviruses' genome consists of a positive-sense ssRNA. Like many picornaviruses, cardioviruses synthesize two distinct polyprotein precursors from adjacent but non-overlapping genome segments. Both the [L-1ABCD-2A] and the [2BC-3ABCD] polyproteins are proteolytically processed to yield mature capsid and non-structural proteins, respectively. An unusual translational event, known as 'StopGo' or 'Stop-Carry on', is responsible for the release of the [L-1ABCD-2A] polyprotein from the… CONTINUE READING
