Suppressors of RNA silencing encoded by geminiviruses and associated DNA satellites

Abstract

In plants, RNA silencing provides a major line of defence against viruses. This antiviral immunity involves production of virus-derived small interfering RNAs (vsiRNAs) and results in specific silencing of viruses by vsiRNAs-guided effector complexes. As a counterattack against RNA silencing, many plant viruses encode suppressors of RNA silencing called… (More)
