RNA silencing is a potent antiviral response in plants. As a counterdefense, most plant and some animal viruses encode RNA silencing suppressors. In this study, we showed that Pns6, a putative movement protein of Rice ragged stunt virus (RRSV), exhibited silencing suppressor activity in coinfiltration assays with the reporter green fluorescent protein (GFP)(More)
RNA silencing is a conserved mechanism found ubiquitously in eukaryotic organisms. It has been used to regulate gene expression and development. In addition, RNA silencing serves as an important mechanism in plants’ defense against invasive nucleic acids, such as viruses, transposons, and transgenes. As a counter-defense, most plants, and some animal(More)
