Keyword - Inhibition of host mRNA nuclear export by virus (KW-1099)

Keywords navigation



Viral protein involved in the disruption of the mRNA nuclear export machinery. Viruses have evolved ways of interacting with the nuclear export machinery to inhibit cellular translation and maximize the expression of their own mRNAs. This global inhibition of cellular protein synthesis serves to ensure maximal viral gene expression and to evade host immune response.
