Altered local and systemic spread of movement deficient virus in transgenic tobacco plants expressing the cucumber mosaic virus 3a protein


 The 3a protein encoded by RNA 3 of cucumber mosaic virus has been identified as the viral cell-to-cell movement protein. The constitutive expression in transgenic tobacco plants of 3a protein from a subgroup I strain was able to complement in trans the short distance movement of a 3a defective CMV mutant belonging to a different taxonomic subgroup.
