We recently reported the molecular characterization and functional analysis of an overlapping gene 2b encoded by RNA 2 of the Q strain of cucumber mosaic cucumovirus (Q-CMV). We show here that the homologous gene encoded by the V strain of tomato aspermy cucumovirus (V-TAV) and the WAII strain of CMV (WAII-CMV), which is in a different subgroup to Q-CMV, is also expressed in vivo by demonstrating the accumulation of the mRNA (RNA 4A) and its protein in infected plants. Interestingly, RNA 4A of… CONTINUE READING
