Members of the Cripavirus genus exhibit the Type I IGR IRES structure (Jan et al. 2006). The type I IRES is characterized by the presence of a conserved consensus bulge sequence (UGAUCU/UGC), absence of a third stem loop in Pseudoknot I, and the presence of a consensus sequence (UUAC) downstream of stem loop I.
