Geminivirus replication: genetic and biochemical characterization of Rep protein function, a review.

Abstract

Replication of the single-stranded DNA genome of plant geminiviruses follows a rolling circle mechanism. It strictly depends on a 'replication initiator protein' (Rep) which is the sole viral protein essential for replication. Rep protein catalyzes multiple reactions during the reproductive cycle of the virus. Here we summarize the recent advances of in… (More)
