Abstract

A plant protoplast system for studying tomato spotted wilt tospovirus (TSWV) infection was established and tested. Using polyethylene glycol-mediated inoculation with highly infectious TSWV particles, generally 50% or more of protoplasts were infected. In these cells viral RNA and viral protein synthesis became detectable at 16 h post-inoculation (p.i.) and continued at least until 90 h p.i. Both the structural viral proteins [nucleoprotein (N) and the envelope glycoproteins G1 and G2] and the nonstructural viral proteins NSs and NSm accumulated to amounts sufficient for detection and immunocytological analysis. Local lesion tests on petunia leaves and electron microscopical analysis confirmed the production of mature, infectious virus particles, underlining the conclusion that a full infection cycle was completed in this system. Upon inoculation of (cowpea) protoplasts with TSWV particles, comparable proportions of infected cells and amounts of NSs, NSm and N protein were obtained, but much lower amounts of viral glycoproteins were detected than in protoplasts, and progeny virus particles were less abundant. With the -based protoplast system, a powerful synchronized single-cell infection system has now become available for more precise studies of the processes occurring during tospovirus infection.
