Abstract Earlier reports have indicated that begomoviruses encode four proteins (AC1/C1, AC2/C2, AC3/C3, and AC4/C4 proteins) using complementary‐sense DNA as the template. In recent years, several reports have shown that some begomoviruses also encode an AC5/C5 protein from the complementary DNA strand, and these AC5/C5 proteins play different roles in virus infections. Here, we provide evidence showing that Ageratum leaf curl Sichuan virus (ALCScV), a monopartite begomovirus, also encodes a… 
The novel C5 protein from tomato yellow leaf curl virus is a virulence factor and suppressor of gene silencing
This study confirms the expression of the TYLCV C5 by analyzing the promoter activity of its upstream sequences and by detecting the C5 protein in infected cells by using a specific custom-made antibody, hence expanding the knowledge of the functional repertoire of theTYLCV proteome.
Geminivirus C4 proteins inhibit GA signaling via prevention of NbGAI degradation, to promote viral infection and symptom development in N. benthamiana
A novel mechanism by which geminivirus C4 proteins control viral infection and disease symptom development by interfering with the GA signaling pathway is proposed.
Geminivirus C4 proteins inhibit GA signaling via prevention of NbGAI degradation, to promote viral infection and symptom development in N. benthamiana
It is demonstrated that geminivirus - encoded C4 protein regulates the GA signaling pathway to promote viral accumulation and disease symptom development and provides new insights into the interaction between virus and host.
A prophage‐encoded nonclassical secretory protein of “Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus” induces a strong immune response in Nicotiana benthamiana and citrus
Overexpression of AGH17470 in N. benthamiana and citrus plants up‐regulated the transcription of pathogenesis‐related and salicylic acid (SA)‐signalling pathway genes and promoted SA accumulation, becoming the first prophage‐encoded secretory protein demonstrated to elicit an HR and induce a strong plant immune response.
Molecular characterization of a novel Conyza canadensis-infecting begomovirus in China
A novel monopartite begomovirus was found in naturally infected Conyza canadensis plants exhibiting typical begomovirus-induced yellow vein symptoms in Yunnan Province of China. Analysis of two
Role of Diversity and Recombination in the Emergence of Chilli Leaf Curl Virus
It is indicated that ChiLCV has the potential for rapid evolution and adaptation to a range of geographic conditions and could be adopted to infect a wide range of crops, including diverse chilli cultivars.


The AC5 protein encoded by Mungbean yellow mosaic India virus is a pathogenicity determinant that suppresses RNA silencing-based antiviral defenses.
It is demonstrated that MYMIV AC5 is a pathogenicity determinant and a potent RNA silencing suppressor that employs novel mechanisms to suppress antiviral defenses, and suggested that the AC5 function may be conserved among many begomoviruses.
Analysis of Pathogenicity and Virulence Factors of Ageratum leaf curl Sichuan virus
Ageratum leaf curl Sichuan virus (ALCScV) is a novel monopartite begomovirus, which was identified from Ageratum conyzoides plants in Sichuan Province, China. In this study, we showed that ALCScV can
The AC4 Protein of a Cassava Geminivirus Is Required for Virus Infection.
Results show involvement of EACMCV AC4 in virus infectivity; they also suggest a role for the combined action of mutation and selection, under prevailing environmental conditions, on begomovirus genetic variation and diversity.
The Malvastrum Yellow Vein Virus C4 Protein Promotes Disease Symptom Development and Enhances Virus Accumulation in Plants
The results indicate that the MaYVV C4 protein is a determinant of disease symptom and viral DNA accumulation and this protein can also function as a suppressor of RNA silencing and alter cell division and expansion.
Cotton Leaf Curl Multan virus C4 protein suppresses both transcriptional and post-transcriptional gene silencing by interacting with SAM synthetase
It is reported that Cotton Leaf Curl Multan virus (CLCuMuV) C4 protein interacts with S-adenosyl methionine synthetase (SAMS), a core enzyme in the methyl cycle, and inhibits SAMS enzymatic activity.
Geminivirus C3 Protein: Replication Enhancement and Protein Interactions
Investigating the impact of mutations to amino acids that are conserved across the C3 protein family on replication enhancement and protein interactions in dicot-infecting geminivirus replication established the importance of C3-C3, C2-C1, and C4-PCNA interactions in geminIVirus replication.
Toward understanding the molecular mechanism of a geminivirus C4 protein
A model of how C4 functions is proposed, which demonstrates that C4 interacts with 7 of the 10 members of the Arabidopsis thaliana SHAGGY-like protein kinase gene family and characterized the interactions of C4 and C4 mutants with AtSKs.
The role of AV2 ("precoat") and coat protein in viral replication and movement in tomato leaf curl geminivirus.
The results demonstrated that multiple functions provided by AV2, BV1, BC1 are essential for viral movement, and that changes in A-component virion-sense mRNA structure or translation affect viral replication.
