Abstract

SUMMARY

Mesophyll protoplasts of barley were efficiently infected with brome mosaic virus (BMV) in two different ways under different conditions. Polycation-independent infection occurs at low pH in low ionic strength inoculum whereas polycation-dependent infection occurs at high pH in higher ionic strength inoculum. Optimal conditions at low pH were 20 g/ml BMV, 0.2 g/ml poly--ornithine and 0.7 -mannitol in 0.1 m-potassium citrate buffer, pH 5.0; about 70% of protoplasts were infected. Optimal conditions at high pH were 1 g/ml BMV, 1 g/ml poly--ornithine and 0.7 -mannitol in 50 m-phosphate buffer, pH 8.8; nearly 60% of protoplasts became infected. A brief contact of virus and poly--ornithine was essential for infection at high pH whereas it inhibited polycation independent infection at low pH. At high pH, poly--ornithine formed aggregates with virus. Infection of protoplasts seemed to be controlled by the strength of the positive charge on virus particles at low pH and that on the virus-poly--ornithine complexes at high pH.
