The movement protein (MP) of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) is essential for spread of the viral RNA genome from cell to cell. During infection, the MP associates with microtubules, and it has been proposed that the cytoskeleton transports the viral ribonucleoprotein complex from ER sites of synthesis to plasmodesmata through which infection spreads into adjacent cells. However, microtubule association of MP was observed in cells undergoing late infection rather than in cells undergoing early… CONTINUE READING
