To clarify the mechanism of seed transmission of Pepper mild mottle virus (PMMoV), the virus was immunolocalized in Capsicum annuum seeds using fluorescence microscopy. Two distinct patterns were observed: In the first, PMMoV was present in the epidermis and parenchyma but not in the endosperm or embryo; in the second, the virus was restricted to the surface of the epidermis and parenchyma. These findings shed light on the fundamental mechanisms of seed transmission of tobamoviruses and may aid… CONTINUE READING
