Transport of the viral genome into the nucleus is an obligatory step in the replication cycle of geminiviruses. Capsid proteins (CPs) of geminiviruses are multifunctional proteins thought to be involved in this process. The CP of monopartite geminiviruses is absolutely essential for virus movement. To more precisely examine the role of CP, we have constructed a series of single and double deletions into the coding sequence of Tomato leaf curl Java virus (ToLCJAV) CP and examined sub-cellular… CONTINUE READING
