A new baculovirus expression system was used to express the gene II which encodes the 18-kDa aphid transmission factor (ATF) protein of two isolates of cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV), the aphid-transmissible (AT+) Cabb B-JI and the aphid-nontransmissible (AT-) CM1841 isolates. ATF activity was shown to be associated with the baculovirus expression product… CONTINUE READING
