The complete genome sequence of a new polerovirus in strawberry plants from eastern Canada showing strawberry decline symptoms.
Arch. Virol.
PUBLISHED: 08-07-2014

Hide Abstract
Strawberry decline disease, probably caused by synergistic reactions of mixed virus infections, threatens the North American strawberry industry. Deep sequencing of strawberry plant samples from eastern Canada resulted in the identification of a new virus genome resembling poleroviruses in sequence and genome structure. Phylogenetic analysis suggests that it is a new member of the genus Polerovirus, family Luteoviridae. The virus is tentatively named "strawberry polerovirus 1" (SPV1).

Reduced polyphenol oxidase gene expression and enzymatic browning in potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) with artificial microRNAs.

Hide Abstract
Polyphenol oxidase (PPO), often encoded by a multi-gene family, causes oxidative browning, a significant problem in many food products. Low-browning potatoes were produced previously through suppression of PPO gene expression, but the contribution of individual PPO gene isoform to the oxidative browning process was unknown. Here we investigated the contributions of different PPO genes to total PPO protein activity, and the correlations between PPO protein level, PPO activity and tuber tissue browning potential by suppression of all previously characterized potato PPO genes, both individually and in combination using artificial microRNAs (amiRNAs) technology.

Hide Abstract
The utility of artificial microRNAs (amiRNAs) to induce loss of gene function has been reported for many plant species, but expression efficiency of the different amiRNA constructs in different transgenic plants was less predictable. In this study, expressions of amiRNAs through the gene backbone of Arabidopsis miR168a were examined by both Agrobacterium-mediated transient expression and stable plant genetic transformation. A corresponding trend in expression of amiRNAs by the same amiRNA constructs between the transient and the stable expression systems was observed in the experiments. Plant genetic transformation of the constructs that were highly expressible in amiRNAs in the transient agro-infiltration assays resulted in generation of transgenic lines with high level of amiRNAs. This provides a simple method for rapid and effective selection of amiRNA constructs used for a time-consuming genetic transformation in plants.

Cucumber necrosis virus p20 is a viral suppressor of RNA silencing.
Virus Res.

Hide Abstract
The p20 protein encoded by the tombusvirus, Cucumber necrosis virus has previously been shown to be involved in host pathogenicity and shares sequence similarity with the Tomato bushy stunt virus p19 suppressor of silencing. Using a virus-induced gene silencing (VIGS) assay, we show that p20 is a viral suppressor of RNA silencing (VSR) in infected plants. In addition, a CNV p20-knockout mutant showed a decline in viral RNA accumulation in infected plants, consistent with the role of p20 in suppression of RNA silencing. However, unexpectedly, all GFP transgenic plants co-infiltrated with p20 and GFP displayed RNA silencing using an Agrobacterium-mediated silencing assay. Detailed RNA analysis of GFP mRNA levels in p20 agro-infiltrated plants revealed that p20 did initially display suppressor activity but this was rapidly overcome by RNA silencing. p20 expression levels in agro-infiltrated plants were shown to be approximately 50-fold lower than that of the TBSV p19 silencing suppressor, consistent with the notion that p20 dosage levels are not sufficient to suppress RNA silencing in the Agrobacterium-mediated system. Our results suggest that a viral-based VIGS assay may be required for identifying VSRs encoded by some plant viruses. Based on bioinformatics studies the mechanism of suppression of silencing by p20 is predicted to be similar to that of the TBSV p19 suppressor.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
