Abstract

(ACLSV) is the type species of the genus and its single-stranded, plus-sense RNA genome encodes a 216 kDa protein (P216) involved in replication, a 50 kDa movement protein (P50) and a 21 kDa coat protein (CP). In this study, it was investigated whether these proteins might have RNA silencing-suppressor activities by -mediated transient assay in the green fluorescent protein-expressing line 16c. The results indicated that none of these proteins could suppress local silencing in infiltrated leaves. However, systemic silencing in upper leaves induced by both single- and double-stranded RNA could be suppressed by P50, but not by a frame-shift mutant of P50, P216 or CP. Moreover, when P50 was expressed separately from where silencing signals were generated in a leaf, systemic silencing in upper leaves was inhibited. Collectively, our data indicate that P50 acts as a suppressor of systemic silencing without interfering with local silencing, probably by inhibiting the movement of silencing signals.
