Viral movement proteins exploit host endomembranes and the cytoskeleton to move within the cell via routes that, in some cases, are dependent on the secretory pathway. For example, melon necrotic spot virus p7B, a type II transmembrane protein, leaves the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) through the COPII-dependent Golgi pathway to reach the plasmodesmata. Here(More)
The coat protein (CP) of Melon necrotic spot virus (MNSV) is structurally composed of three major domains. The middle S-domain builds a robust protein shell around the viral genome, whereas the C-terminal protruding domain, or P-domain, is involved in the attachment of virions to the transmission vector. Here, we have shown that the N-terminal domain, or(More)
UNLABELLED Phloem vasculature is the route that most plant viruses use to spread widely around the plant. In addition, phloem sap transports signals that trigger systemic defense responses to infection. We investigated the proteome-level changes that occur in phloem sap during virus infection using the 2D-DIGE technique. Total proteins were extracted from(More)
