Potato virus X: a model system for virus replication, movement and gene expression

Mol Plant Pathol. 2003 Mar 1;4(2):125-31. doi: 10.1046/j.1364-3703.2003.00156.x.


SUMMARY Considerable research has focused on the cis- and trans-acting components required for various aspects of the potato virus X (PVX) infection process. In addition, the development of PVX-based vectors has facilitated analyses of the PVX infection process and provided diverse technological applications. As a result, the PVX system will continue to serve as a model for analyses of processes such as virus movement, RNA replication, and gene silencing, and as a tool for protein expression.
