Abstract

One of the best studied examples of the regulation of translation is the inhibition of host cell protein synthesis following viral infection (Bablanian, 1975; Smith and Carrasco, 1978). In several virus/host systems the bulk of viral proteins are synthesized under conditions in which the initiation of translation of cellular mRNAs is strongly inhibited.
