Keyword - Eukaryotic host translation shutoff by virus (KW-1193)

Keywords navigation



Viral protein involved in inhibiting the host translational machinery to shutoff cellular gene expression. This gives virus transcripts a competitive edge to use the hijacked translation machinery. Preventing the expression of host proteins is also a strategy to counteract the antiviral response. Several virus are known to inhibit host translation mostly by inactivating translation factors.
