Tomato bushy stunt virus (TBSV) is a plus-sense RNA virus which encodes a 33-kDa protein in its 5'-most open reading frame (ORF). Readthrough of the amber stop codon of the p33 ORF results in the production of a 92-kDa fusion protein. Both of these products are expressed directly from the viral genome and are suspected to be involved in viral RNA replication. We have investigated further the roles of these proteins in the amplification of viral RNAs by using a complementation system in which… CONTINUE READING
