LncRNA Seduction of GOT2 Goes Viral

Immunity. 2017 Dec 19;47(6):1021-1023. doi: 10.1016/j.immuni.2017.12.006.


Mechanisms of viral infection are active areas of investigation. In a recent issue of Science, Wang et al. (2017) reveal an additional function of a host-encoded long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) in regulating viral expression by binding a host metabolic enzyme to enhance its catalytic activity.
