Replicating Potato spindle tuber viroid mediates de novo methylation of an intronic viroid sequence but no cleavage of the corresponding pre-mRNA.


In plants, Potato spindle tuber viroid (PSTVd) replication triggers post-transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS) and RNA-directed DNA methylation (RdDM) of homologous RNA and DNA sequences, respectively. PTGS predominantly occurs in the cytoplasm, but nuclear PTGS has been also reported. In this study, we investigated whether the nuclear replicating PSTVd is… (More)
