Abstract

Summary

Mesophyll protoplasts were prepared from plants and infected with cowpea mosaic virus (CPMV) or cymbidium ringspot virus (CyRSV) using inocula containing either polyethylene glycol or poly--ornithine. The level of infection was estimated by fluorescent antibody staining and by spot hybridization assay. About 25% of the protoplasts became infected with CPMV and about 35% with CyRSV. Yields of progeny RNA were about 700 ng of CPMV RNA and 3 µg of CyRSV RNA per 10 protoplasts. Cytopathic structures found in protoplasts inoculated with CPMV or CyRSV were similar to the structures found in CPMV-infected cowpea protoplasts or in CyRSV-infected plants respectively.
