Abstract

High levels of resistance to (PVA, genus ), indicated by absence of detectable infection in inoculated leaves, were attained in transformed with a construct expressing the PVA 5′-untranslated region fused with the coat protein (CP)-encoding sequence. Low steady-state levels of the transgene transcripts were detected. Resistance was PVA-specific and did not protect the plants against infection with (PVY, genus ). Consequently, the steady-state levels of the CP-transgene mRNA were greatly elevated in the plants infected with PVY, and plants became susceptible to infection with PVA. These data show that virus resistance obtained by expressing regions of a plant virus genome in transgenic plants may be suppressed following infection with another virus that evades the virus-specific resistance.
