Regulation of Translation of Eukaryotic Virus mRNAs
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.
