Description

Virus-host crosstalk during viral protein synthesis
Relief of translational repression by the potyviral Helper component protease HCPro

The aim of the visit was to study how a variety of translational repression mutations in Arabidopsis affect potyviral infection. The visit enabled us to expand the research into another virus-host pair, TuMV-Arabidopsis, including several interesting Arabidopsis mutants with defects in translational repression. Knowledge of the pathosystem and working practices will be transferred to Dr. Kristiina Mäkinen’s group in Helsinki The research visit falls within the scope of the Academy of Finland project “Translationally active and inactive ribonucleoprotein complexes and their importance in potyvirus infection” (decision n:o 298254, principal investigator Dr. Kristiina Mäkinen, University of Helsinki)
