The herpes simplex virus virion host shutoff protein is targeted to mRNA cleavage sites through interactions with components of the host translational apparatus
(University of Missouri--Kansas City, 2011-01-20)
of circularized RNA that normally experiences cap-dependent scanning and circularized RNA that initiates translation in a cap-independent manner. Results indicated that Vhs requires a free 5' end for specific cleavage of mRNA that undergoes cap-dependent scanning...
Structural and functional studies of type three secretion virulence factors from gram-negative pathogenic bacteria
(University of Missouri-Kansas City, 2011-12-21)
Many pathogenic Gram-negative bacteria utilize type III secretion systems (TTSS) to alter the normal functions of target host epithelial cells. Of the 1.1 million deaths that are caused by Shigella each year, nearly a third ...
