Activation of host translational control pathways by a virus developmental switch

Regulation of gene expression at the level of mRNA translation is important for the control of numerous biological processes including cell growth, differentiation, development and the response to environmental stress. Unlike prokaryotes, the vast majority of eukaryotic mRNAs are unable … Continue reading
