Viral invasion and host defense: strategies and counter-strategies

Curr Opin Plant Biol. 1998 Aug;1(4):336-41. doi: 10.1016/1369-5266(88)80056-6.


The outcome of infection of plants by viruses is determined by the net effects of compatibility functions and defense responses. Recent advances reveal that viruses have the capacity to modulate host compatibility and defense functions by a variety of mechanisms.
