The movement of bipartite geminiviruses such as squash leaf curl virus (SqLCV) requires the cooperative interaction of two essential virus-encoded movement proteins, BR1 and BL1. While the viral coat protein AR1 is not essential for systemic infection, genetic studies demonstrate that its presence masks the defective phenotype of certain BR1 missense mutants, thus suggesting that coat protein does interact with the viral movement pathway. To further examine the mechanism of this interaction, we… CONTINUE READING
