We previously identified the Tomato leaf curl Java virus-A (ToLCJV-A[ID]) from Southeast Asia as a new member of the emerging group of monopartite begomoviruses that require a betasatellite component for symptom induction. In this study, the role of V2 in viral pathogenesis and posttranscriptional gene silencing (PTGS) was studied. Our results showed V2 of… CONTINUE READING
