Tomato yellow leaf curly virus (TYLCV), transmitted by the whitefly (), causes leaf curling and yellowing, plant dwarfism, and growth inhibition in tomato ( L.). The APETALA2 (AP2) and ethylene response factor (ERF) transcription factor (TF) family, the largest plant-specific TF family, was identified to function in plant development and pathogen defense. Our study aimed to analyze the mechanism underlying the function of ERF (SlERF) TFs in response to TYLCV infection and improve useful… CONTINUE READING
