New preprint from Ed’s previous postdoc, from lead authors Myra Hosmillo and Jia Lu on how noroviruses use the cellular factor G3BP for viral translation is now on bioRxiv. In this work we used multiple proteomic and CRISPR-based approaches to identify cellular factors critical for norovirus replication. G3BP1 was identified as such, and subsequent cellular and in vitro assays confirmed a role in viral protein synthesis. The preprint can be read here.
