Translation in plants-rules and exceptions

  title={Translation in plants-rules and exceptions},
  author={Johannes F{\"u}tterer and Thomas Peter Erich Hohn},
  journal={Plant Molecular Biology},
Translation processes in plants are very similar to those in other eukaryotic organisms and can in general be explained with the scanning model. Particularly among plant viruses, unconventional mRNAs are frequent, which use modulated translation processes for their expression: leaky scanning, translational stop codon readthrough or frameshifting, and transactivation by virus-encoded proteins are used to translate polycistronic mRNAs; leader and trailer sequences confer (cap-independent… CONTINUE READING
