Transgenic tobacco plants that express the genome-linked protein/proteinase-coding region of the potyvirus tobacco vein mottling virus (TVMV) were produced and tested for their reaction to inoculation with TVMV and two other potyviruses. These plants did not develop disease symptoms after being inoculated with large doses of TVMV but were as susceptible to infection by the other potyviruses as were control plants. Lines of tobacco that express the coat protein- or the nonstructural cylindrical… CONTINUE READING
