To investigate the structural determinants regulating viroid replication and pathogenicity, we have examined the biological properties of four chimeric viroids containing sequences derived from hop stunt (HSVd) and citrus exocortis (CEVd) viroids. The viability of each chimera--CEHS (CEVd left half + HSVd right half), HSCE (HSVd left half + CEVd right half), CE/HS-TR (CEVd + HSVd right terminal loop), and HS/CE-TR (HSVd + CEVd right terminal loop)--was tested by inoculation onto cucumber and… CONTINUE READING
