It is now the 3rd CHALLENGE Period for CACAO Fall 2017! It will end on Sunday October 22, 2017 at 11:59 pm CDT
This is your chance to challenge other team's annotations. You may also DEFEND or suggest improvements to your own annotations IF they have been challenged. Please note, although we ENCOURAGE challenges, an excess of identical challenges that do not appear to be applicable to the annotation or well thought out will be considered spam and ignored.

name: viral translational termination-reinitiation
namespace: biological_process
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.
