Bipartite geminiviruses such as squash leaf curl virus (SqLCV) encode two movement proteins (MPs), BR1 and BL1, that are essential for virus movement and systemic infection of host plants. BR1 has been implicated in the host range properties of the virus, and BL1 in viral pathogenic properties. To more precisely examine the roles of each MP, we have introduced missense and deletion mutations into the coding sequence of both BR1 and BL1, and examined the effects of these mutations on viral… CONTINUE READING
