Abstract

Several mutants of the Mahoney strain of poliovirus type 1 have been generated by introducing mutations into the stem-loop II (SLII) structure within the internal ribosomal entry site (IRES). Four of these mutants (SLII-1, -4, -5 and -6 mutants) have been characterized previously and are host-range mutants that replicate well in human HeLa cells but not in mouse cells. Two deletion mutants, SLII-2 and SLII-3, were non-viable, even in HeLa cells. It is now reported that SLII-2 was defective in genome RNA synthesis and viral protein synthesis, while SLII-3 was defective only in viral protein synthesis. These results indicate that the SLII region contains a cis-element for RNA replication as well as for IRES-dependent translation and that these two functions lie at the same sites within the SLII region. The host cellular factors that interacted with wild-type SLII and mutant SLII-2 and SLII-3 RNAs were different, suggesting that different host-factor binding regulates expression of mutant phenotypes.
