The L11Y strain of Tomato mosaic virus (ToMV) causes severe chlorosis on infected tobacco leaves. Sequencing analysis for the genome showed that L11Y contained multiple nucleotide changes and that some led to amino acid substitutions, when compared with that of the common L strain of ToMV. The chimeric virus, which has the CP of L11Y in the context of the L strain RNA genome, caused severe chlorosis on infected tobacco plants, suggesting that the CP of L11Y containing three amino acid changes… CONTINUE READING
