Initiation of translation by cricket paralysis virus IRES requires its translocation in the ribosome.

Fernández IS, Bai XC, Murshudov G, Scheres SH, Ramakrishnan V - Cell (2014)

Bottom Line: By using recent advances in single-particle electron cryomicroscopy, we have solved the structure of CrPV-IRES bound to the ribosome of the yeast Kluyveromyces lactis in both the canonical and rotated states at overall resolutions of 3.7 and 3.8 Å, respectively.In both states, the pseudoknot PKI of the CrPV-IRES mimics a tRNA/mRNA interaction in the decoding center of the A site of the 40S ribosomal subunit.Translocation of the IRES by elongation factor 2 (eEF2) is required to bring the first codon of the mRNA into the A site and to allow the start of translation.
