Abstract

Beet necrotic yellow vein virus (BNYVV) is a multipartite RNA virus. BNYVV RNA3 does not accumulate in non-host transgenic Arabidopsis thaliana plants when expressed using a 35S promoter. However, a 3'-derivative species has been detected in transgenic plants and in transient expression assays conducted in Nicotiana benthamiana and Beta macrocarpa. The 3'- derivative species is similar to the previously reported subgenomic RNA3 produced during virus infection. 5' RACE revealed that the truncated forms had identical 5' ends. The 59 termini carried the coremin motif also present on BNYVV RNA5, beet soil-borne mosaic virus RNA3 and 4, and cucumber mosaic virus group 2 RNAs. This RNA3 species lacks a m 7Gppp at the 5' end of the cleavage products, whether expressed transiently or virally. Mutagenesis revealed the importance of the coremin sequence for both long-distance movement and stabilization of the cleavage product in vivo and in vitro. The isolation of various RNA3 5'-end products suggests the existence of a cleavage between nt 212 and 1234 and subsequent exonucleolytic degradation, leading to the accumulation of a non-coding RNA. When RNA3 was incubated in wheatgerm extracts, truncated forms appeared rapidly and their appearance was protein- and divalent ion-dependent. © 2012 SGM.
