Plant viruses encode movement proteins that are essential for infection of the host but are not required for viral replication or encapsidation. Squash leaf curl virus (SqLCV), a bipartite geminivirus with a single-stranded DNA genome, encodes two movement proteins, BR1 and BL1, that have been implicated in separate functions in viral movement. To further elucidate these functions, we have investigated the nucleic acid binding properties and cellular localization of BR1 and BL1. In this study… CONTINUE READING
