Intron–hairpin RNA Derived from Replication Associated Protein C1 Gene Confers Immunity to Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus Infection in Transgenic Tomato Plants

Abstract

The whitefly-transmitted Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus (TYLCV) is the major pathogen of tomato crop in Cuba and one of the most outstanding viral diseases of plants worldwide. In this work, we have developed transgenic tomato plants, transformed with an intron–hairpin genetic construction to induce post- transcriptional gene silencing against the early… (More)
