[1] Cell-specific proteins regulate viral rna translation and virus-induced disease / E. V. Pilipenko, E. G. Viktorova, S. T. Guest et al. // EMBO Journal. — 2001. — Vol. 20, no. 23. — P. 6899–6908. Translation initiation of the picornavirus genome is regulated by an internal ribosome entry site (IRES). The IRES of a neurovirulent picornavirus, the GDVII strain of Theiler's murine encephalomyelitis virus, requires polypyrimidine tract-binding protein (PTB) for its function. Although neural cells are deficient in PTB, they express a neural-specific homologue of PTB (nPTB). We now show that nPTB and PTB bind similarly to multiple sites in the GDVII IRES, rendering it competent for efficient translation initiation. Mutation of a PTB or nPTB site results in a more prominent decrease in nPTB than PTB binding, a decrease in activity of nPTB compared with PTB in promoting translation initiation, and attenuation of the neurovirulence of the virus without a marked effect on virus growth in non-neural cells. The addition of a second-site mutation in the mutant IRES generates a new PTB (nPTB) binding site, and restores nPTB binding, translation initiation and neurovirulence. We conclude that the tissue-specific expression and differential RNA-binding properties of PTB and nPTB are important determinants of cell-specific translational control and viral neurovirulence.
