    Virus Res 133:123-35. 2008
    ..Furthermore, translation of core+1 ORF is not significantly affected by the presence of the HCV IRES element. The core+1/S-GFP protein is cytoplasmic and exhibits an ER distribution similar to that of the core+1/F-GFP protein...

    J Gen Virol 89:222-31. 2008
    ..Finally, although core+1 codons 85/87 is the most efficient site for internal initiation of core+1 translation, it may not be unique, as additional internal core+1 codon(s) appear to drive translation at low levels...
