Abstract

Viral protein synthesis is dependent on the functional protein synthesizing machinery of the host cell. Before dealing with the characteristics of viral protein synthesis, a summary of basic features and of the control of protein synthesis in uninfected cells is required. Particular aspects which are specific for the translation of poliovirus mRNA or those which are thought to be affected by poliovirus infection are pointed out in section I and are discussed in detail in section II.
