Expression Profile Matrix of Arabidopsis Transcription Factor Genes Suggests Their Putative Functions in Response to Environmental Stresses
Numerous studies have shown that transcription factors are important in regulating plant responses to environmental stress. However, specific functions for most of the genes encoding transcriptionExpand

Changing Patterns of Localization of the Tobacco Mosaic Virus Movement Protein and Replicase to the Endoplasmic Reticulum and Microtubules during Infection
Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) derivatives that encode movement protein (MP) as a fusion to the green fluorescent protein (MP:GFP) were used in combination with antibody staining to identify host cellExpand

Interaction of Tobamovirus Movement Proteins with the Plant Cytoskeleton
The movement protein of tobacco mosaic tobamovirus and related viruses is essential for the cell-to-cell spread of infection and, in part, determines the host range of the virus. Movement proteinExpand

Pathogen-induced systemic plant signal triggers DNA rearrangements
Plant genome stability is known to be affected by various abiotic environmental conditions, but little is known about the effect of pathogens. For example, exposure of maize plants to barley stripeExpand

A Family of Plasmodesmal Proteins with Receptor-Like Properties for Plant Viral Movement Proteins
Plasmodesmata (PD) are essential but poorly understood structures in plant cell walls that provide symplastic continuity and intercellular communication pathways between adjacent cells and thus playExpand

Cellular pathways for viral transport through plasmodesmata
Plant viruses use plasmodesmata (PD) to spread infection between cells and systemically. Dependent on viral species, movement through PD can occur in virion or non-virion form, and requires differentExpand

Double-stranded RNAs induce a pattern-triggered immune signaling pathway in plants.
Pattern-triggered immunity (PTI) is a plant defense response that relies on the perception of conserved microbe- or pathogen-associated molecular patterns (MAMPs or PAMPs, respectively). Recently, itExpand

Macromolecular transport and signaling through plasmodesmata.
Plasmodesmata (Pd) are channels in the plant cell wall that in conjunction with associated phloem form an intercellular communication network that supports the cell-to-cell and long-distanceExpand

Plant virus replication and movement.
Replication and intercellular spread of viruses depend on host mechanisms supporting the formation, transport and turnover of functional complexes between viral genomes, virus-encoded products andExpand

Function of microtubules in intercellular transport of plant virus RNA
Cell-to-cell progression of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) infection in plants depends on virus-encoded movement protein (MP). Here we show that a conserved sequence motif in tobamovirus MPs sharesExpand
