Transgenic expression of a translatable version of the Potato mop-top virus (PMTV) coat protein (CP) gene (encoded by RNA 3) in Nicotiana benthamiana prevented production of symptoms and infective virus particles. RNAs 1 and 2 accumulated in inoculated and systemic leaves but, apart from small amounts of CP transgene RNA transcript, no genomic-length RNA 3 was found. Crude leaf extracts from inoculated plants were not infective. However, when RNA extracts from such transgenic plants were… CONTINUE READING
