Keyword - Host mRNA suppression by virus (KW-1192)

Keywords navigation



Viral protein involved in suppressing host mRNAs expression to maximize expression of viral mRNAs. Decimating cellular mRNAs eventually leads to shutoff of host proteins expression and gives virus transcripts a competitive edge for access to the cellular translation machinery. Preventing the expression of host proteins is also a strategy to counteract the antiviral response. Suppression of host mRNA can be performed by interfering with host pre-mRNA processing function (splicing or polyadenylation), by degrading mRNAs or blocking their export from the nucleus to the cytoplasm.
