In order to evaluate new possibilities for protecting plants against virus infection by interference with viral replication, two chimeric genes were constructed in which the (+) strand 3'-terminal 100 nucleotides (nt) of the noncoding region of the turnip yellow mosaic virus (TYMV) genome were placed downstream from the sense or antisense cat coding region. The two chimeric genes were then introduced into the genome of rapeseed (Brassica napus) using an Agrobacterium rhizogenes vector system… CONTINUE READING
