name: viral translational termination-reinitiation
def: "A process which occurs as part of viral mRNA translation which allows expression of a downstream open reading frame (ORF) in a dicistronic mRNA. In this process, ribosomes translate the upstream ORF but following termination, a proportion of 40S subunits remain tethered to the mRNA and go on to re-initiate translation at the start codon of the downstream ORF." [GOC:bf, GOC:ch, GOC:jl, PMID:18631147, PMID:18824510, VZ:858]
comment: This term is intended to annotate gene products involved in the process of viral translational termination-reinitiation, not viral proteins produced by this translation process.
