Abstract

Mutagenesis of the artichoke mottled crinkle virus (AMCV) genome and complementation studies between replication-defective mutants were undertaken to identify viral protein(s) essential for AMCV replication. Inoculation of protoplasts with mutant transcripts revealed that null mutations in ORFs 1 [tA33()], 2 [tA92()] and 6 [tA7()], as well as an ORF 2 mutation [tA92GED] in the GDD motif of the 92 kDa protein, the putative replicase, prevented accumulation of detectable levels of progeny RNA. Conversely, mutations of ORFs 3 [tA41()], 4 [tA21()] and 5 [tA19()] did not substantially affect the accumulation of AMCV genomic and subgenomic RNAs of both positive and negative polarity. Inoculation of N. plants with transcripts impaired in replication revealed that tA92() and tA7() mutants lead to replicating pseudorevertants. Functional analysis of these pseudorevertants showed that: (i) the double stop codon introduced at the end of ORF 1 to prevent the translational readthrough of the 92 kDa protein reverted to a single amber, ochre or opal codon, giving rise to viable genomes; (ii) the putative 7 kDa protein is not essential for genome viability, although the RNA region spanning ORF 6 plays a role in in replication. Finally, the two replication-defective mutants tA33() and tA92() complemented when coinoculated to protoplasts, definitively proving that the 33 kDa protein is essential for tombusvirus genome replication. Analysis of viral RNAs from the coinfection experiments showed that tA92() was preferentially amplified over tA33().
