Potentiality of Methylation-sensitive Amplification Polymorphism (MSAP) in Identifying Genes Involved in Tomato Response to Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Sardinia Virus

Abstract

Plants have developed several genetically regulated defense strategies against a wide range of biotic stresses (viruses, fungi, bacteria, nematodes). There is experimental evidence that DNA methylation and post-transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS) are strongly associated and have evolved as plant defense mechanisms against invasion by foreign nucleic acids… (More)
