The disease does not spread to humans but there is an identically named human illness that is caused by another member of the picornavirus family.
By this translation enhancement such an internal picornavirus IRES reduces possible effects of mutations or inhibitors of translation.
We used retrovirus-mediated transduction to introduce FoxP3 or FoxP3 with anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 family molecule Bcl-xL linked by a 2A picornavirus self-cleaving peptide into CD4+ T cells to generate Tregs.
Surprisingly, the polyhedrin subunits are more similar to picornavirus coat proteins than to the polyhedrin of cytoplasmic polyhedrosis virus (CPV).
This is similar to a recent study of picornavirus inactivation by UV, showing that at doses of approximately 1.25 J / cm
Furthermore, we recently demonstrated CPMV bioavailability and systemic tissue trafficking in mouse CPMV is a comovirus in the picornavirus superfamily, and infects the cowpea plant
