name: IRES-dependent viral translational initiation
def: "Process by which viral mRNA translation is initiated, where a domain in the 5' untranslated region (UTR) of the viral mRNA called an internal ribosome entry site (IRES) binds the host 43S preinitiation complex, circumventing regular cap-dependent translation initiation." [GOC:bf, GOC:jl, PMID:19632368, VZ:867]
