Abstract:The DA strain of Theiler's murine encephalomyelitis virus (TMEV), a picornavirus, causes a persistent, restricted infection and demyelinating disease in mice. In contrast, the GDVII strain causes an acute, fatal, neuronal disease and is highly neurovirulent. To investigate the role of the TMEV 5' untranslated region (UTR) in translational efficiency and the TMEV subgroup differences, we tested the translational efficiency of transcripts in vitro derived from plasmids containing DA, GDVII, or DA/GDVII chimeric … Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
