The structure of a replication initiator unites diverse aspects of nucleic acid metabolism
Rolling circle replication is a mechanism for copying single-stranded genomes by means of double-stranded intermediates. A multifunctional replication inititiator protein (Rep) is indispensable forExpand

DNA Helicase Activity Is Associated with the Replication Initiator Protein Rep of Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Geminivirus
ABSTRACT The Rep protein of tomato yellow leaf curl Sardinia virus (TYLCSV), a single-stranded DNA virus of plants, is the replication initiator essential for virus replication. TYLCSV Rep has beenExpand

Phenotypic effects of overexpression of Agrobacterium rhizogenes T‐DNA ORF13 in transgenic tobacco plants are mediated by diffusible factor(s)
Nicotiana tabacum cv. Xanthi transgenic plants expressing ORF13 of Agrobacterium rhizogenes 8196 T-DNA under the 35S RNA promoter from the cauliflower mosaic virus displayed developmentalExpand

Wound-inducible and organ-specific expression of ORF13 from Agrobacterium rhizogenes 8196 T-DNA in transgenic tobacco plants
Abstract Tissue-specific expression of the ORF13 promoter from Agrobacterium rhizogenes 8196 was assessed throughout the development of transgenic tobacco plants using a GUS reporter gene. ORF13Expand

In planta protein-protein interactions assessed using a nanovirus-based replication and expression system.
The multipartite genome of the nanovirus Faba bean necrotic yellows virus, which consists of one gene on each DNA component, was exploited to construct a series of virus-based episomal vectorsExpand

The T-DNA ORF8 of the cucumopine-type Agrobacterium rhizogenes Ri plasmid is involved in auxin response in transgenic tobacco
Abstract In A. rhizogenes , various Ri plasmids are found that show some differences in terms of genetic organization as compared to the reference plasmid pRiA4. On this plasmid as well on theExpand

rol genes of Agrobacterium rhizogenes cucumopine strain: sequence,effects and pattern of expression
By sequencing the central region of the cucumopine-type T-DNA of Agrobacterium rhizogenes strain 2659, we identified three open reading frames homologous, to different extents, to ORFs 10, 11 and 12Expand

A new open reading frame, encoding a putative regulatory protein, in Agrobacterium rhizogenes T-DNA.
We report the presence of an open reading frame, named ORF13a, encoding a putative regulatory protein on the T-DNA of Agrobacterium rhizogenes 8196 Ri plasmid. Homologous ORFs are present at the sameExpand
