The possibility that a cotranslational disassembly mechanism, similar to that observed when pH 8-treated tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) particles are incubated in an in vitro translation system [T. M. A. Wilson. (1984), Virology 137, 255-265], may be involved in the early stages of virus infection was investigated. Extracts of tobacco leaf epidermal cells, collected between 10 and 70 min after inoculation with 32P- and [3H]leucine-labeled TMV, contained material which had higher buoyant densities… CONTINUE READING
