A unique virulence factor for proliferation and dwarfism in plants identified from a phytopathogenic bacterium
TLDR
It is shown that a single virulence factor, tengu-su inducer (TENGU), induces witches' broom and dwarfism and is a small secreted protein of the plant-pathogenic bacterium, phytoplasma. Expand
Lectin-Mediated Resistance Impairs Plant Virus Infection at the Cellular Level[C][W][OA]
TLDR
Analysis of resistance of certain Arabidopsis thaliana ecotypes to a potexvirus to show the existence of lectin genes that show a variety of levels of virus resistance, their targets, and their properties, which are distinct from those of known R genes, suggests the generality of Lectin-mediated resistance in plant innate immunity. Expand
Viral-induced systemic necrosis in plants involves both programmed cell death and the inhibition of viral multiplication, which are regulated by independent pathways.
TLDR
It is suggested that systemic necrosis and HR consist of PCD and a restraint of virus multiplication, and that the latter is induced through unknown pathways independent from the former. Expand
In Planta Recognition of a Double-Stranded RNA Synthesis Protein Complex by a Potexviral RNA Silencing Suppressor[C][W][OPEN]
TLDR
It is demonstrated that transgenic expression of TGBp1 of plantago asiatica mosaic virus (PlAMV) induced developmental abnormalities in Arabidopsis thaliana similar to those observed in mutants of SUPPRESSOR of GENE SILENCING3 and RNA-DEPENDENT RNA POLYMERASE6 required for the trans-acting small interfering RNA synthesis pathway. Expand
Identification and characterization of two novel genomic RNA segments of fig mosaic virus, RNA5 and RNA6.
TLDR
Sequence analysis showed that the novel RNA segments found in FMV isolates are similar, in their structural organization and molecular evolutionary patterns, to those of known FMV genomic RNA segments. Expand
Molecular epidemiology of Plum pox virus in Japan.
TLDR
The relationships of the PPV-D strain were reconstructed with high resolution: at the global level, the American, Canadian, and Japanese isolates formed their own distinct monophyletic clusters, suggesting that the routes of viral entry into these countries were independent. Expand
Variability in the level of RNA silencing suppression caused by triple gene block protein 1 (TGBp1) from various potexviruses during infection.
TLDR
It is suggested that suppressor activities differ even among homologous proteins encoded by viruses of the same genus, and that TGBp1 contributes to the variation in the level of RNA silencing suppression by potexviruses. Expand
Fig mosaic emaravirus p4 protein is involved in cell-to-cell movement.
TLDR
A series of experiments revealed that FMV-p4 has the capacity to complement viral cell-to-cell movement, prompt GFP diffusion between cells, and spread by itself to neighbouring cells. Expand
The N-terminal region of the Plantago asiatica mosaic virus coat protein is required for cell-to-cell movement but is dispensable for virion assembly.
TLDR
Results support the concept that the N-terminal region of potexvirus CP can be separated into two distinct functional domains. Expand
Significantly low level of small RNA accumulation derived from an encapsidated mycovirus with dsRNA genome.
TLDR
This study suggests the existence of a novel viral strategy employed to evade host RNA silencing, and detected small interfering RNAs from both positive- and negative-strand MoV2 viral RNA, suggesting that the RNAsilencing machinery in M. oryzae functions against the mycovirus. Expand
