Infection by Grapevine fanleaf nepovirus (GFLV), a bipartite RNA virus of positive polarity belonging to the Comoviridae family, causes extensive cytopathic. The specific transmission of Grapevine fanleaf virus by its nematode vector Xiphinema index is solely determined by the viral coat protein. There are plenty of plant viruses that no one has heard of, but few are as widely known as grapevine fanleaf virus. Learn how to identify a sick.

On the contrary, anti-VPg revealed several bands in total Fig.

Occasionally, very clear CP-labeled spike-like structures were detected within the cytoplasm Fig. Cerulenin, a drug inhibiting de novo synthesis vrius phospholipids, also inhibited GFLV replication. Affected vines show chrome-yellow discolorations that develop early in the spring and may affect all vegetative parts of the vines. No VPg aggregates were observed in control mock-transfected or uninfected protoplasts, as shown in Fig.

Grapevine fanleaf virus – Wikipedia

Ultrathin sections 90 nm were stained with uranyl acetate and lead citrate. The fixative was replaced by 2. Genome organization of grapevine fanleaf nepovirus RNA2 deduced from the K polyprotein P2 in vitro cleavage products. Crystal structure of Grapevine Fanleaf Virus capsid. Nepoviruses Viral grape diseases Viral plant disease stubs. Further in grapebine time course analysis will be required to confirm the observed variations in the number of Golgi stacks within a single cell during the course of infection, but this is beyond the scope of this study.


Small vesicles were specifically immunotrapped by anti-VPg from ER-enriched bottom fractions of the sucrose gradient from infected protoplasts. Photo courtesy of William M. Mock-inoculated protoplasts referred to as healthy protoplasts were used as a control.

The cell lines used were: Remodeling the endoplasmic reticulum by poliovirus infection and by individual viral proteins: Inhibition vrus poliovirus RNA synthesis by brefeldin A. Both by their size and their morphology, these vesicles resemble the COP vesicles that traffic along the secretory pathway 1 Brome mosaic virus helicase- and polymerase-like proteins colocalize on the endoplasmic reticulum at sites of viral RNA synthesis.

Canes are also malformed, showing abnormal branching, double nodes, different length or exceedingly short internodes, fasciations, and zigzag growth.

Arrowheads, Golgi; N, nucleus; P, plastids; M, mitochondria. Similar information is available with animal viruses and has been described extensively in the literature, more particularly for poliovirus, the type member of picornaviridae. Intracellular localization of the peanut clump virus replication complex in tobacco-BY-2 protoplasts containing GFP-labeled endoplasmic reticulum virks Golgi apparatus.

The sedimentation of Golgi Fig. T-BY2 protoplasts were prepared from wt and transgenic cells from 4-day-old cultures. Excitation and emission wavelengths were and to nm, respectively, for either GFP or A and and to nm, respectively, for A These birus were always restricted to the VPg-labeled areas in the nuclear periphery Fig. The plant Golgi apparatus: Three-dimensional reconstruction from CLSM image stack was obtained by using the surface rendering software Bitplane, Zurich, Switzerland.

Grapevine Fanleaf Virus Replication Occurs on Endoplasmic Reticulum-Derived Membranes

The structure and origin of these aggregates could now be resolved in much better detail by CLSM. Foliar symptoms develop early in the spring and persist through the vegetative season, although symptoms may be difficult to find in fully grown canopies later in summer.


Poor vine health also predisposes vines to winter injury and death in colder climates. It can therefore be concluded that both de novo phospholipid biosynthesis and ER-Golgi integrity are required for efficient GFLV replication.

Formation of plant RNA virus replication complexes on membranes: Panels F, J, and U correspond to healthy cells. Support Center Support Center. To compare the distribution of the viral proteins involved in replication with that of proteins involved in movement and encapsidation, we analyzed the intracellular distribution of the movement protein 2B MP and the coat protein 2C CPboth of which are dispensable for replication In the first syndrome, infectious malformations, the vines may be stunted or show reduced vigor.

Cloning and in vitro characterization of the grapevine fanleaf virus proteinase cistron. Future work will focus on identifying which intermediate or final maturation product derived from GFLV polyprotein P1 is responsible for the recruitment of vesicles from the ER and whether this phenomenon occurs through a COP budding mechanism.
