Mapping the 5′ ends of banana bunchy top virus gene transcripts


Banana bunchy top virus (BBTV), a multi-component circular ssDNA virus, replicates via a dsDNA intermediate that also serves as a template for virion sense transcription. Seven virus-derived transcripts have been previously identified and analysed in BBTV-infected bananas by northern analysis and 3′ rapid amplification of cDNA ends (3′ RACE). In this study… (More)
