The description of the protein encoded in this ORF: capsid protein precursor (36.5 kDa)
The translational frameshift (ribosome slippage) involved: 0
The ribosome read-through involved: no
The alternative forms of this protein occur by the alternative initiation of translation: not tested
The ORF absolute position (the base range includes START and STOP codons or their equivalents): 6473-9097
The virus infects Laodelphax striatellus. It is presumed the capsid protein precursor is initiated at a CUA
codon and that the IRES-region contains several loop structures forming pseudoknots. In PSIV the capsid
protein precursor is initiated from a CUU codon.
