  journal={Annual review of virology},
Major advances in our understanding of plant viral genome expression strategies and the interaction of a virus with its host for replication and movement, induction of disease, and resistance responses have been made through the generation of infectious molecules from cloned viral sequences. Autonomously replicating viral vectors derived from infectious clones have been exploited to express foreign genes in plants. Applications of virus-based vectors include the production of human/animal… Expand
Development and optimization of a pepino mosaic virus-based vector for rapid expression of heterologous proteins in plants.
The PepMV-based vector produces rapid expression of the foreign gene in comparison to two other potexvirus-based vectors, and expression levels of the heterologous protein were comparable or exceeded previously developed viral vectors. Expand
A Versatile Plant Rhabdovirus-Based Vector for Gene Silencing, miRNA Expression and Depletion, and Antibody Production
The results highlight the utility of the SYNV vector system in gene function studies and agricultural biotechnology and provide a technical template for developing similar vectors of other economically important plant rhabdoviruses. Expand
Molecular characterization and pathogenicity of an infectious cDNA clone of tomato brown rugose fruit virus
Tomato brown rugose fruit virus (ToBRFV) is a new member of the genus Tobamovirus , and has the potential to affect the production and marketability of tomatoes and peppers. In this study, weExpand
CRISPR/Cas systems versus plant viruses: engineering plant immunity and beyond
The successful application of clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats/CRISPR-associated protein/Cas systems to engineer plant immunity, increase plant resistance to viruses, and develop viral diagnostic tools is discussed. Expand
Facile method of curing toxicity in large viral genomes by high-throughput identification and removal of cryptic promoters.
The results indicate that cryptic promoters are ubiquitous within large viral genomes and that promoter screening is a desirable first step when constructing a viral clone. Expand

Stable Display of Artificially Long Foreign Antigens on Chimeric Bamboo mosaic virus Particles
Using plant virus-based chimeras to express foreign proteins can increase their length limitations, and engineered plant-made CVP-based vaccines have increasing potential for further development as novel vaccines. Expand
Prospects for viruses infecting eukaryotic microalgae in biotechnology.
A short review of what is known about viruses infecting eukaryotic microalgae, and how acknowledging their importance can shape future research focussed not only on marine ecology and evolutionary biology but also on biotechnological applications related toMicroalgae cell factories. Expand
Home-made enzymatic premix and Illumina sequencing allow for one-step Gibson assembly and verification of virus infectious clones
The home-made materials were used in one-step generation of the infectious cDNA clone of a plant RNA virus into a T-DNA binary vector and clone infectivity was finally confirmed by Agrobacterium -mediated delivery to host plants. Expand
A viral guide RNA delivery system for CRISPR-based transcriptional activation and heritable targeted DNA demethylation in Arabidopsis thaliana
It is shown that viral delivery of guide RNAs using a modified tobacco rattle virus can be used for transcriptional activation and heritable epigenome editing, advancing the use of plant RNA viruses as delivery agents for epigenome edited. Expand
