Summary A ssRNA, which has a satellite-like relationship with tobacco mosaic virus (TMV), had an estimated mol. wt. of 0.38 × 106 and was found to be encapsidated in isometric particles with a diameter of 17 nm. The capsid protein had a mol. wt. of 18 × 103. This satellite virus of TMV (STMV) is highly immunogenic and no serological relatedness was detected between it and either TMV or satellite tobacco necrosis virus (STNV) or satellite panicum mosaic virus (SPMV) in immunodiffusion tests with antibodies specific for STMV, TMV, STNV and SPMV. Randomly primed STMV cDNA hybridized with STMV-specific dsRNA and ssRNA but did not hybridize to ssRNA of TMV, SPMV, panicum mosaic or cucumber mosaic viruses. The dsRNAs of different isolates of STMV differed in their electrophoretic mobilities, but they all shared nucleotide sequence homology. Particles of STMV tended to aggregate and crystallize upon purification. Replication of STMV in tobacco plants was supported by TMV but not by cucumber mosaic virus. This is the first report of a satellite virus of a rod-shaped plant virus.

Abstract The entire genome of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) was copied into a series of subgenomic cDNA clones. cDNA sequences of the 5′ and 3′ ends of TMV were cloned separately. A synthetic oligonucleotide primer was used to generate a Pst I site at the 5′ terminus, whereas a different primer was used to generate an Nde I site at the 3′ terminus. This strategy permitted removal of non-TMV sequences from cloned cDNA inserts by treatment with exonuclease VII following restriction endonuclease cleav...

Abstract Oligonucleotide primers have been used to generate a cDNA library covering the entire tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) RNA sequence. Analysis of these clones has enabled us to complete the viral RNA sequence and to study its variability within a viral population. The positive strand coding sequence starts 69 nucleotides from the 5' end with a reading frame for a protein of Mr 125,941 and terminates with UAG. Readthrough of this terminator would give rise to a protein of Mr 183,253. Overlappin...

Summary RNAs prepared from particles of ten plant viruses by a new procedure in which detergent and sodium perchlorate were used were compared with RNAs obtained by the standard two-phase phenol technique. On the basis of u.v. extinction spectra, yield, component composition and infectivity of the RNAs, the NaClO4 method was judged to be as good as and often considerably better than, the phenol method. Moreover, the NaClO4 method is simpler and faster, and it gives good yields of RNA from viruse...

Abstract The six principal components of cucumber mosaic virus RNA were eluted from polyacrylamide gels. After reaction with formaldehyde, their molecular weights were determined by means of sedimentation velocity ultracentrifugation. The molecular weights found were 0.91 million Daltons (mixture of components C2 and C1); 0.68 million Daltons (component B); 0.33 million Daltons (component A); 0.11 million Daltons (component 0); and 0.01 million Daltons (component 00). Individual molecular weight...

Using an improved method of gel electrophoresis, many hitherto unknown proteins have been found in bacteriophage T4 and some of these have been identified with specific gene products. Four major components of the head are cleaved during the process of assembly, apparently after the precursor proteins have assembled into some large intermediate structure.

Efficient replication and assembly of virus particles are integral to the establishment of infection. In addition to the primary role of the capsid protein (CP) in encapsidating the RNA progeny, experimental evidence on positive sense single-stranded RNA viruses suggests that the CP also regulates RNA synthesis. Here, we demonstrate that replication of Satellite tobacco mosaic virus (STMV) is controlled by the cooperative interaction between STMV CP and the helper virus (HV) Tobacco mosaic virus...

In this study, we assembled an Agrobacterium-based transient expression system for the ectopic expression of Satellite tobacco mosaic virus (STMV) (þ )o r (� ) transcripts and their biological activity was confirmed when Nicotiana benthamiana plants were co-expressed with helper Tobacco mosaic virus replicase. Characterization of STMV in the presence and absence of its HV revealed: (i) HV-dependent expression of STMV (þ )i nN. benthamiana, but not in N. tabacum, generated a replication-deficient...

Satellite tobacco mosaic virus (STMV) is among the smallest viruses, having 60 identical subunits arranged with T = 1 icosahedral symmetry. Its crystal structure was solved at 290 K and was refined using, in part, crystals grown in microgravity. Electron-density maps revealed nearly 57% of the genomic ssRNA. Using six flash-cooled crystals, diffraction data were recorded to 1.4 A resolution and independent refinements of the STMV model were carried out versus the previous 1.8 A resolution data r...

There are various small RNAs associated with plant pathogenic situations. Essentially, most fall into three groups, those that can replicate autonomously, those that require a functional virus for their replication and those formed as a host response to normal virus infection. The first group is termed viroids, the second group include satellites and defective nucleic acids (described in Chapter 7, Section IV, C) and the third group (si RNAs) are discussed in Chapter 9. In this chapter, I descri...

Abstract The Pepper Mild Mottle Virus (PMMoV) is a soil-borne virus that causes the mosaic disease to Capsicum ssp. This virus disease had been controlled by soil fumigation using methyl bromide, but the method was banned in 2005. Therefore, a new management and control technology that replaces methyl bromide is required. In the present study, the adsorption of PMMoV by soils that is considered to be one of the most important factors of the virus inactivation was examined. We used eight soil sam...

Agarose gel electrophoresis, circular dichroism and differential scanning calorimetry showed that single-stranded RNA from satellite tobacco mosaic virus transforms from a conformationally ‘closed state’ at 4 � C to a more conformationally ‘open state’ at 65 � C. The transition is reversible and shows no hysteresis. Atomic force microscopy (AFM) allowed visualization of the two states and indicated that the conformationally ‘closed state’ probably corresponds to the native encapsidated conformat...

Single-stranded genomic RNAs from four icosahedral viruses (poliovirus, turnip yellow mosaic virus (TYMV), brome mosaic virus (BMV), and satellite tobacco mosaic virus (STMV)) along with the RNA from the helical tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) were extracted using phenol/chloroform. The RNAs were imaged using atomic force microscopy (AFM) under dynamic conditions in which the RNA was observed to unfold. RNAs from the four icosahedral viruses initially exhibited highly condensed, uniform spherical sha...
