Rice stripe virus 23.9 K protein aggregates and forms inclusion bodies in cultured insect cells and virus-infected plant cells

Rice stripe virus 23.9 K protein aggregates and forms inclusion bodies in cultured insect cells... The genome of Rice stripe virus (RSV, genus Tenuivirus ) contains seven open reading frames (ORFs). Little is known about the products of four of these ORFs, including the 23.9 K protein encoded by the virus-sense ORF of RNA3. Western blotting revealed that the 23.9 K protein was synthesized in the host plant and also in the planthopper vector of RSV. Using a baculovirus vector, the 23.9 K protein was expressed, both unfused and fused with red-shifted green fluorescent protein, in Spodoptera frugiperda cells. Inclusion bodies were observed by light microscope in cells expressing fused or unfused proteins. Inclusion bodies in cells expressing the fused protein fluoresced under blue light. By immunoelectron microscopy, electron-dense inclusion bodies in cells expressing the unfused protein were specifically labeled with 23.9 K protein antiserum. Moreover, electron-dense masses labeled with 23.9 K protein antiserum were observed in virus-infected wheat tissue by electron microscopy.

Abstract

The genome of Rice stripe virus (RSV, genus Tenuivirus ) contains seven open reading frames (ORFs). Little is known about the products of four of these ORFs, including the 23.9 K protein encoded by the virus-sense ORF of RNA3. Western blotting revealed that the 23.9 K protein was synthesized in the host plant and also in the planthopper vector of RSV. Using a baculovirus vector, the 23.9 K protein was expressed, both unfused and fused with red-shifted green fluorescent protein, in Spodoptera frugiperda cells. Inclusion bodies were observed by light microscope in cells expressing fused or unfused proteins. Inclusion bodies in cells expressing the fused protein fluoresced under blue light. By immunoelectron microscopy, electron-dense inclusion bodies in cells expressing the unfused protein were specifically labeled with 23.9 K protein antiserum. Moreover, electron-dense masses labeled with 23.9 K protein antiserum were observed in virus-infected wheat tissue by electron microscopy. This paper thus demonstrates that RSV 23.9 K protein can aggregate in vivo and form inclusion bodies in infected plant tissue.
