The translation initiation factor eIF4A is cleaved within mammalian cells infected by foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV). The FMDV 3C protease cleaves eIF4AI (between residues E143 and V144), but not the closely related eIF4AII. Modification of eIF4AI, to produce a sequence identical to eIF4AII around the cleavage site, blocked proteolysis. Alignment of mammalian eIF4AI onto the three-dimensional structure of yeast eIF4A located the scissile bond within an exposed, flexible portion of the molecule. The N- and C-terminal cleavage products of eIF4AI generated by FMDV 3C dissociate. Cleavage of eIF4AI by FMDV 3C is thus expected to inactivate it.
