Most viruses interfere with or modulate host systems to ensure successful replication. My group has been looking at the interactions between the leader proteinase of foot-and-mouth disease virus and the 2A proteinase of the common cold virus and coxsackieviruses with the cellular protein called eukaryotic initiation factor 4G (eIF4G). This protein is involved in recruiting capped cellular mRNA to the ribosomes for protein
