Upon infection plant viruses modulate cellular functions and resources to survive and reproduce. Plant cells in which the virus is replicating are transformed into strong metabolic sinks. This conversion gives rise to a massive reprogramming of plant primary metabolism. Such a metabolic shift involves perturbations in carbohydrates, amino acids and lipids that eventually lead to increase respiration rates, and/or decrease in photosynthetic activity. By doing so, plants provide metabolic… CONTINUE READING
