distinct functions of capsid protein in assembly and movement of tobacco etch potyvirus in plants.tobacco etch potyvirus engineered to express the reporter protein beta-glucuronidase (tev-gus) was used for direct observation and quantitation of virus translocation in plants. four tev-gus mutants were generated containing capsid proteins (cps) with single amino acid substitutions (r154d and d198r), a double substitution (dr), or a deletion of part of the n-terminal domain (delta n). each modified virus replicated as well as the parental virus in protoplasts, but was defective in cell-to-cell ...19947511101
resistance against multiple plant viruses in plants mediated by a double stranded-rna specific ribonuclease.many plant viruses have single-stranded rnas as their genomes. during the course of replication, genomic rnas and their complementary template rnas are likely to form double-stranded (ds) rna at least transiently. to attack replication intermediates of many plant rna viruses specifically, we introduced a yeast-derived ds-rna specific rnase gene called pac 1 into plants. the transformed plants showed a decrease in lesion numbers when they were challenged with tomato mosaic virus, and a delay in t ...19957556661
transmission by aphids of a naturally non-transmissible plum pox virus isolate with the aid of potato virus y helper component.two spanish plum pox virus (ppv) isolates, 5.15 and 3.3, were used in transmission experiments involving the aphid vector myzus persicae, with woody and herbaceous host plants. these isolates differ in the size of their coat protein (cp) and sequence analysis revealed that isolate 3.3 has a 15 amino acid deletion near the n terminus of the cp, affecting the same positions as in a previously reported non-aphid-transmissible ppv isolate from germany. aphid transmission experiments showed that isol ...19957561767
characterization of antigenic epitopes of potato virus y.immunochemical analysis of overlapping synthetic hexapeptides covering the entire length of the coat protein of potato virus y (pvy) revealed immunodominant regions both at the n-terminal and at the c-terminal end of the coat protein. immunization of rabbits with synthetic peptides representing n- and c-terminal regions of the coat protein resulted in production of antibodies that reacted with pvy. antigenicity of pvy peptides was found to correlate with predicted beta turns, with hydrophilicity ...19937680576
improvement in the sensitivity of pvyn detection by increasing the cdna probe size.cloned cdna to a north american isolate of tobacco veinal necrotic strain of potato virus y (pvyn) rna was used for the detection of pvyn in diseased samples. digoxigenin-labelled cdna probes were prepared from approximately 0.56 kb, approximately 1.2 kb, approximately 2.5 kb, and approximately 3.25 kb overlapping clones representing the 3'-terminus of the pvyn genome. it was shown that the probe sizes, as determined by alkaline gel-electrophoresis, generally corresponded to the size of the temp ...19947714042
digoxigenin-labelled molecular probe for the simultaneous detection of three potato pathogens: potato spindle tuber viroid (pstvd), potato virus y (pvy), and potato leafroll virus (plrv).a molecular probe, p3pot, was constructed of pstvd, pvy, plrv cdna fragments introduced into puc18 vector. sequencing of the inserts revealed that cloned fragments covered conservative parts of pathogenic genomes. dot-blot hybridization of digoxigenin-labelled construct to crude extracts from plants infected with different potato viruses proved high sensitivity and specificity of the p3pot probe. this makes p3pot probe an useful tool for the routine testing, and selection of virus-free potatoes.19947732766
cleavage of potato virus y polyprotein in escherichia coli depending on the proteolytic activity of viral protease.we have cloned a 5-kb cdna corresponding to the 3'-half of genomic rna of potato virus y (pvy), the type member of plant potyvirus. based on its nucleotide sequence, the cdna was presumed to encode pvy protease responsible for the self-processing of polyprotein precursor expressed from pvy genome. to test its proteolytic activity, the cdna was modified so as to express the protease-polymerase-coat protein (cp) portion of pvy polyprotein in escherichia coli. by western blotting analysis of the ce ...19937763774

molecular cloning and sequencing of the capsid and the nuclear inclusion protein genes of a north american pvyn isolate.the sequence of the 3'-terminal 3258 nucleotides of a tobacco veinal necrosis strain of a potato virus y (pvyn) isolate from north america was determined. the sequence revealed an open reading frame of 2931 nucleotides, of which the start codon was not identified. the nontranslated region contains 327 nucleotides upstream of a poly(a) tract. the open reading frame encodes a large polyprotein containing 976 amino acids. the data indicate that the coat protein (cp) and the nuclear inclusion protei ...19947954114
[the effect of the 5'-leader of potato x-virus on expression of the gene for the potato y virus membrane protein in transgenic solanum tuberosum].the 5'-leader of potato virus x (pvx) genomic rna was successfully used to generate potato plants expressing the coat protein of the potato virus yn (russian isolate) (pvy cp). two expression cassettes were constructed that carried the pvy cp coding sequence along with the pvy 3'untranslated region under the control of the camv 35s promoter and poly(a) signal. the cassettes contained different sequences between the 35s promoter and the cp artificial aug initiating codon of the coat protein: eith ...19947990802
transgenic plant virus resistance mediated by untranslatable sense rnas: expression, regulation, and fate of nonessential rnas.haploid leaf tissue of tobacco cultivars k326 and k149 was transformed with several transgenes containing cdna of the potato virus y (pvy) coat protein (cp) open reading frame (orf). the various transgenes containing the pvy cp orf sequence produced (1) the expected mrna and cp product, (2) an mrna rendered untranslatable by introduction of a stop codon immediately after the initiation codon, or (3) an antisense rna that was untranslatable as a result of the incorrect orientation of the pvy cp o ...19947994177
principles and background for the construction of transgenic plants displaying multiple virus resistance.we investigated the possibility of reconstructing the 2'-5' oligoadenylate (2-5a) pathway into the plant kingdom to achieve multiple virus resistance. differently phosphorylated 2-5a trimers and tetramers inhibited tmv rna translation in cell-free systems. in wheat germ extracts the most potent inhibitors were nonphosphorylated forms of 2-5a. triphosphorylated forms of 2-5a were deposphorylated and hydrolysed in plant extracts. since we could not detect homologous dna to mammalian 2-5a synthetas ...19948032271
the 5' untranslated region of pvy rna, even located in an internal position, enables initiation of translation.potato virus y (pvy) is the type member of the potyvirus group. potyviruses, like picorna-, como-, and nepoviruses, belong to the picornavirus-like supergroup. all these viral rnas have a vpg at their 5' end, and for four picornaviruses and one comovirus internal initiation of translation has been reported. to know if such a translational mechanism holds true for potyviral rnas, the 5' nontranslated region (ntr) of pvy rna was placed in an internal position, either by adding 91 bases upstream of ...19938122396
replicase-mediated resistance to potato virus y in transgenic tobacco plants.nicotiana tabacum 'turkish samsun nn' plants were transformed with nuclear inclusion b (nib) gene sequences of potato virus y, o strain (pvyo). the full-length construct included an additional in-frame initiation codon contiguous to the putative n-terminal amino acid codon and a stop codon replacing the c-terminal amino acid codon. of 13 independently transformed lines, four yielded 37 (out of 100) plants in the r1 generation that were resistant to pvyo infection. progeny of 13 out of 15 of r1 p ...19948167367
a pcr-microplate hybridization method for plant virus detection.a sensitive nonradioactive method for detection of plant viruses was evaluated. a cdna fragment from the coat protein coding region of the potato virus y (pvy) rna genome amplified by reverse transcription (rt) followed by polymerase chain reaction (pcr), was directly adsorbed onto polystyrene microplate wells after heat denaturation. the adsorbed cdna was hybridized with a digoxigenin (dig)-labelled cdna probe without a prehybridization step. the probe was also prepared by pcr using the same pa ...19948188816
mutations in the helper component protease gene of zucchini yellow mosaic virus affect its ability to mediate aphid transmissibility.the nucleotide sequence of the helper component protease (hc-pro) genes of three zucchini yellow mosaic virus (zymv) strains has been compared with that of a helper-deficient strain of zymv-hc. the comparisons revealed three unique deduced amino acid differences. two of these mutations were located in regions which are conserved in other potyviruses. the role of these mutations in aphid transmissibility was examined by exchanging dna fragments of part of the deficient hc-pro gene with the respec ...19948207404

complex formation determines the activity of ribozymes directed against potato virus yn genomic rna sequences.a ribozyme was synthesized against a conserved region in the rna-dependent rna-polymerase encoding cistron of the important plant pathogen potato virus y (pvy). this ribozyme was shown to cleave pvy-specific rna-transcripts efficiently in vitro, with up to 95% of the substrate rna being cleaved within 2 h incubation at 37 degrees c. a second ribozyme, designed with much shorter viral complementary arms in an attempt to optimize the efficiency of the cleavage reaction, surprisingly failed to clea ...19938460529
expression and assembly of the potato virus y (pvy) coat protein (cp) in escherichia coli cells.a clone harboring the full-length cdna of potato virus y in a lambda-dash vector under the control of a t7 promoter was introduced into escherichia coli carrying the t7-rna-polymerase gene on a plasmid. the viral coat protein was expressed and the product was of the same size as the corresponding mature protein in infected plants. immunoelectronmicroscopy of transfected cell extracts revealed virus-like particles, indicating that the proteins involved in its processing and the viral coat protein ...19938493811
a simplified procedure for the subtractive cdna cloning of photoassimilate-responding genes: isolation of cdnas encoding a new class of pathogenesis-related proteins.transgenic tobacco plants (ppa-1) constitutively expressing escherichia coli pyrophosphatase behind the 35s camv promoter accumulate high levels of soluble sugars in their leaves [27]. these plants were considered a tool to study adaptation of leaves to photoassimilate accumulation at the molecular level. by differential hybridization of a subtractive library enriched for transcripts present in the transgenic plants 12 different cdnas were isolated. by sequence analysis four cdnas could be ident ...19958555446
cell-free cloning and biolistic inoculation of an infectious cdna of potato virus y.potato virus y (pvy) full-length cdna has been found to be refractory to cloning in escherichia coli cells. a full-length 9.7 kb pvy cdna was obtained by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (rt-pcr) from the rna of pvy (tuber necrotic strain, pvyntn). double-stranded dna fragments were used as primers (ds megaprimers), to include signals for transcription in vivo (a cauliflower mosaic virus 35s rna promoter and a nopaline synthase terminator) in the final pcr product. biolistic bomba ...19968601790
loss of potyvirus transmissibility and helper-component activity correlate with non-retention of virions in aphid stylets.the hypothesis that loss of aphid transmissibility of potyvirus mutants is due to non-retention of virions in the mouthparts was tested by feeding aphids through membranes on purified virions of aphid transmissible (at or hat) and non-aphid-transmissible (nat) tobacco vein mottling virus (tvmv) or tobacco etch virus (tev), in the presence of functional [potato virus y (pvy) hc or tvmv hc] or non-functional (pvc hc) helper component (hc). tvmv virions were detected, by electron microscopic examin ...19968609482
nucleic acid-binding properties of a bacterially expressed potato virus y helper component-proteinase.the potyvirus helper component-proteinase (hc-pro) is a multifunctional protein previously reported to have affinity for polyribonucleotides. to investigate further the ability of hc-pro to bind nucleic acids, the potato virus y (pvy) lye84 isolate hc-pro gene was amplified, cloned in an escherichia coli expression vector and sequenced. hc-pro was expressed as a fusion with the maltose-binding protein and purified by affinity chromatography. electrophoretic mobility-shift assays demonstrated tha ...19968609483
switches in the mode of transmission select for or against a poorly aphid-transmissible strain of potato virus y with reduced helper component and virus accumulation.a poorly aphid-transmissible potato virus y (pvy-pat) variant emerged after several cycles of mechanical transmission of an initially aphid-transmissible (at) isolate. sequence analysis of the n-terminal region of the helper component-proteinase (hc-pro) gene revealed a lys to glu change at a position previously found to abolish the hc-pro aphid transmission activity in several potyviruses. two cycles of aphid transmission allowed the virus population to evolve towards an at form (pvy-atnew) whe ...19968757973
frequent occurrence of recombinant potyvirus isolates.we have performed a systematic search for recombination in the region encoding coat protein and the 3' non-translated region in natural isolates of potyviruses, the largest group of plant rna viruses. the presence of recombination, and the localization of the cross-over points, were confirmed statistically, by three different methods. recombination was detected or suspected in 18 out of 109 potyvirus isolates tested, belonging to four out of eight virus species, and was most prevalent in potato ...19968760448
