Many virus diseases of economic importance to agriculture result from mixtures of different pathogens invading the host at a given time. This contrasts with the relatively scarce studies available on the molecular events associated with virus-host interactions in mixed infections. Compared with single infections, co-infection of Nicotiana benthamiana with(More)
In comparison to single infections, co-infection of Nicotiana benthamiana with Potato virus X (PVX) and Potato virus Y (PVY) or Plum pox virus (PPV), resulted in increased systemic symptoms (synergism in pathology). Previous studies have shown that virus infections affected the accumulation of various microRNAs (miRNAs) and miRNA target genes. Our studies(More)
One of the most severe symptoms caused by compatible plant-virus interactions is systemic necrosis, which shares common attributes with the hypersensitive response to incompatible pathogens. Although several studies have identified viral symptom determinants responsible for systemic necrosis, mechanistic models of how they contribute to necrosis in infected(More)
The stalk of Saccharomyces cerevisiae ribosomes contains, on average, five distinct proteins, namely P0 and four acidic proteins, P1alpha, P1beta, P2alpha, and P2beta. Each ribosome contains only one copy of P0, but the distribution of the acidic proteins among the ribosome population in vivo has not been determined. Using two-photon fluorescence(More)
Eukaryotic ribosomal stalk protein L12 and its bacterial orthologue L11 play a central role on ribosomal conformational changes during translocation. Deletion of the two genes encoding L12 in Saccharomyces cerevisiae resulted in a very slow-growth phenotype. Gene RPL12B, but not the RPL12A, cloned in centromeric plasmids fully restored control protein level(More)
Hypersensitive response-related programmed cell death (PCD) has been extensively analyzed in various plant-virus interactions. However, little is known about the changes in gene expression and phytohormone levels associated with cell death caused by compatible viruses. The synergistic interaction of Potato virus X (PVX) with a number of Potyvirus spp.(More)
