- In vivo functional analysis of the Dicistroviridae intergenic region internal ribosome entry sitesMarla I Hertz
Department of Microbiology, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, Alabama 35294, USA
Nucleic Acids Res 39:7276-88. 2011..Our findings provide us with a comprehensive overview of IGR IRES activities and allow us to begin to understand the differences between Classes I and II IGR IRESs...
- Tricks an IRES uses to enslave ribosomesSunnie R Thompson
Department of Microbiology, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, AL 35294, USA
Trends Microbiol 20:558-66. 2012..IRESs were discovered over 20 years ago, but only recently have studies using a model IRES from dicistroviruses expanded our understanding of how a 3D RNA structure can capture and manipulate the ribosome to initiate translation...
- So you want to know if your message has an IRES?Sunnie R Thompson
Department of Microbiology, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, AL, USA
Wiley Interdiscip Rev RNA 3:697-705. 2012..We hope that demystifying the accepted methods for assaying IRES activity will open the study of this important mechanism to the broader community...
- CrPV IRES function and animal virus replication in yeastSUNNIE THOMPSON; Fiscal Year: 2006..Overall, these studies will contribute to our understanding on the functioning of viral IRESs and potentially lead to a novel way of studying host genes that are required for virus propagation.
