The Translation of Large Plant Viral RNAs

  • H. Fraenkel-Conrat
  • M. Salvato

The following overview of plant viral translation will center on the viruses with large, presumably multigenic RNAs (molecular weight over 106). This includes both the classical homodisperse viruses like TMV, and the large components of the multicomponent viruses like the bromoviridae.* Such viruses have lent themselves well to biochemical analyses and in vitro studies, but the mode of gene expression in vivo has proven difficult to elucidate.
