Fitness of a turnip crinkle virus satellite RNA correlates with a sequence-nonspecific hairpin and flanking sequences that enhance replication and repress the accumulation of virions.

Abstract

satC, a satellite RNA associated with Turnip crinkle virus (TCV), enhances the ability of the virus to colonize plants by interfering with stable virion accumulation (F. Zhang and A. E. Simon, unpublished data). Previous results suggested that the motif1-hairpin (M1H), a replication enhancer on minus strands, forms a plus-strand hairpin flanked by CA-rich… (More)
