Post-transcriptional gene silencing is commonly observed in polyploid species and often poses a major limitation to plant improvement via biotechnology. Five plant viral suppressors of RNA silencing were evaluated for their ability to counteract gene silencing and enhance the expression of the Enhanced Yellow Fluorescent Protein (EYFP) or the(More)
Traditional virus inoculation of plants involves mechanical rubbing of leaves, whereas in nature viruses like Tomato bushy stunt virus (TBSV) are often infected via the roots. A method was adapted to compare leaf versus root inoculation of Nicotiana benthamiana and tomato with transcripts of wild-type TBSV (wtTBSV), a capsid (Tcp) replacement construct(More)
