    Japan Tobacco Inc., Leaf Tobacco Research Center, Oyama, Tochigi, Japan
    Eukaryotic translation-initiation factors in plants, eIF4E and eIF(iso)4E, play key roles in infection by potyviruses and other plant RNA viruses. Mutations in the genes encoding these factors might reduce susceptibility to viruses. They are the basis of ...

    Japan Tobacco Inc., Leaf Tobacco Research Center, Oyama, Tochigi, Japan
    Tobacco bushy top disease causes severe damage to tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) in Sub-Saharan African countries such as Malawi, Zambia and Tanzania. Reportedly this disease is caused by a complex of tobacco bushy top virus (TBTV, the genus Umbravirus) and ...

    A resistance-breaking potyvirus uses a eukaryotic translation initiation factor different from that of a non-breaking virus: evidence obtained from interaction of potato virus Y and Nicotiana tabacum

    TAKAKURA Y.; SHINJO A.; UDAGAWA H.; KOGA K.
    Japan Tobacco Inc., Leaf Tobacco Research Center, Tochigi, Japan
    Success of the viral infection cycle depends on complex interplay between components encoded by viral and host genomes. Potyviruses use host eukaryotic translation initiation factors (eIFs) for their infection cycle. Many reports have described that ...
