First Evidence for Internal Ribosomal Entry Sites in Diverse Fungal Virus Genomes

PMCID: 5874917
PMID: 29559577
DOI: 10.1128/mBio.02350-17

[…] or similar translational regulatory elements had been developed in filamentous fungi until recently (, ). There are online IRES prediction tools available, like Pfam 12.0 ( () and IRESPred ( (). Nevertheless, because of the lack of sequence and structural similarity conserved across different types of IRESs, it is difficult to accurately predict […]


Know Your Enemy: Successful Bioinformatic Approaches to Predict Functional RNA Structures in Viral RNAs

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5758548
PMID: 29354101
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2017.02582

[…] reher, ; Lozano et al., ). Limited progress has been made in development of automated pipelines for IRES prediction, however, two specialized webservers are available, namely VIPS (Hong et al., ) and IRESPred (Kolekar et al., ). Both VIPS and IRESPred predict IRES based on known IRES sequences and structures. In particular, IRESPred looks for the binding sequence motifs of small subunit ribosomal […]


The Evolution of LINE 1 in Vertebrates

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 5381506
PMID: 28175298
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evw247

[…] ence or absence of an IGR is the effect this region will have on the translation of the ORFs. The IGRs differ considerably in length and base composition, yet the two IRES detection programs we used (IRESPred and VIPS) suggest the presence of IRES in the vast majority of elements with long IGR. Considering the uncertainty of in silico IRES predictions, it will be necessary to validate experimental […]
