Inhibition of tobacco mosaic virus movement by expression of an actin-binding protein.

Inhibition of tobacco mosaic virus movement by expression of an actin-binding protein.

The tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) movement protein (MP) required for the cell-to-cell unfold of viral RNA interacts with the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) in addition to with the cytoskeleton throughout an infection. Whereas associations of MP with ER and microtubules have been intensely investigated,¬†analysis¬†on the position of actin has been quite scarce. We display that Nicotiana … Read more
