RNA-mediated, posttranscriptional gene silencing has been determined as the molecular mechanism underlying transgenic virus resistance in many plant virus-dicot host plant systems. In this paper we show that transgenic virus resistance in sugarcane (Saccharum spp. hybrid) is based on posttranscriptional gene silencing. The resistance is derived from an untranslatable form of the sorghum mosaic potyvirus strain SCH coat protein (CP) gene. Transgenic sugarcane plants challenged with sorghum… CONTINUE READING
