ELUCIDATING THE MECHANISM OF READING FRAME SELECTION BY A VIRAL INTERNAL RIBOSOME ENTRY SITE by Hilda Hiu Tung Au B. 8 1.2.1 Phosphorylation status of eukaryotic initiation factor 2 .............................................Sc., The University of British Columbia, 2010 A THESIS SUBMITTED IN PARTIAL FULFILLMENT OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE DEGREE OF DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY in THE FACULTY OF GRADUATE AND POSTDOCTORAL STUDIES (Biochemistry and Molecular Biology) THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA (Vancouver) December 2016 © Hilda Hiu Tung Au, 2016 ii ABSTRACT The Dicistroviridae intergenic region internal ribosome entry site (IGR IRES) exhibits the remarkable ability to bind the conserved core of the ribosome with high affinity. Insights into factorless translational initiation by the t RNA-like pseudoknot domain of a viral IRES. I conducted the experiments and performed the data analysis. 9 1.2.2 Regulation of eukaryotic initiation factor 4E ............................................................Studies using this chimera demonstrate that formation of stem-loop VI upstream of the IAPV IRES contributes to optimal IRES activity and viral yield. 38 1.6 Thesis investigation ................................................................................................................... 40 Chapter 2: The integrity of the IGR IRES pseudoknot domain is important for IRES-mediated v translation initiation .................................................................................................................................Our findings suggest that extensive and complete t RNA-mimicry by the IAPV IGR IRES facilitates IRES-mediated translation and reading frame selection. 42 2.1 Introduction ............................................................................................................................... 42 2.2 Materials and methods ............................................................................................................... 43 2.2.1 DNA constructs ......................................................................................................... 43 2.2.2 In vitro transcription and translation .........................................................................Moreover, these mostly neglect the cooperativity exhibited by zinc fingers.Here, we present an ab-initio method that is based on mutation of the key α-helical residues of individual fingers of the parent template for Zif-268 and its consensus sequence (PDB ID: 1AAY).

Finally, we established an infectious chimeric clone to investigate how translational regulation by the IAPV IRES affects the viral life cycle. 6 1.1.3.1 Structure of transfer RNA ..............................................................................................

By mimicking the conformation of a t RNA, the IGR IRES can bypass the requirement for canonical initiation factors and Met-t RNAi, and initiate translation from a non-AUG start codon in the ribosomal A site.

The pseudoknot (PKI) domain of the IRES engages the decoding center upon initial ribosome binding, and subsequently translocates into the P site to allow delivery of the incoming aminoacyl-t RNA.

Within the P site, the IRES adopts a conformation that is reminiscent of a P/E hybrid state t RNA to effectively co-opt the canonical elongation cycle. 21 1.4.2.1 Yeast transposable elements ......................................................................................... 21 1.4.2.2 Antizyme is translated via 1 frameshift mechanism ..................................................

How the IGR IRES establishes the translational reading frame in the absence of initiation factors remains an outstanding question. 22 1.4.2.3 The role of suppressor transfer RNA and 1 frameshifting .........................................
