Pattern of N gene-mediated systemic hypersensitive response and turnover of viral replicase protein in tobacco

Pattern of N gene-mediated systemic hypersensitive response and turnover of viral replicase... We examined the pattern of the N gene-mediated systemic hypersensitive response (HR), which was induced by tobacco mosaic virus upon temperature shift, and analyzed the distribution of the coat protein and the virus-encoded 126 kDa replicase protein (126 K protein) by immunoblot analysis. In the middle- and lower-positioned leaves, HR occurred in the advancing edge of the infected area, where we detected both the coat protein and the 126 K protein. In the areas between the main vein and the advancing edge of these leaves, we observed no HR and did not detect 126 K protein, though virus was present in these areas. In the upper-positioned mosaic leaves, patterns of the HR were different depending on the leaf age. In these mosaic leaves, the mechanism preventing the virus from invading dark green tissue seemed to be broken down in 8–14 days old leaves, and HR was observed only in the tissue just invaded by the virus, where we detected the 126 K protein. Those results suggested that the viral 126 K protein was present when the viral replication was taking place, and easily degraded when the amount of the virus was saturated in the cells. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Virology Springer Journals

Abstract

We examined the pattern of the N gene-mediated systemic hypersensitive response (HR), which was induced by tobacco mosaic virus upon temperature shift, and analyzed the distribution of the coat protein and the virus-encoded 126 kDa replicase protein (126 K protein) by immunoblot analysis. In the middle- and lower-positioned leaves, HR occurred in the advancing edge of the infected area, where we detected both the coat protein and the 126 K protein. In the areas between the main vein and the advancing edge of these leaves, we observed no HR and did not detect 126 K protein, though virus was present in these areas. In the upper-positioned mosaic leaves, patterns of the HR were different depending on the leaf age. In these mosaic leaves, the mechanism preventing the virus from invading dark green tissue seemed to be broken down in 8–14 days old leaves, and HR was observed only in the tissue just invaded by the virus, where we detected the 126 K protein. Those results suggested that the viral 126 K protein was present when the viral replication was taking place, and easily degraded when the amount of the virus was saturated in the cells.
