True retroviruses are not known in plants; however, plant pararetroviruses (caulimoviridae) share many retroviral properties, replicating by transcription in the nucleus followed by reverse transcription in the cytoplasm. Pararetroviruses have circular DNA genomes that do not integrate into the host genome, and display several unique expression strategies. Typical of plant pararetroviral pregenomic RNA is a highly structured leader of about 600nt long that is bypassed by scanning ribosomes… CONTINUE READING
