A Three-Dimensional RNA Motif in Potato spindle tuber viroid Mediates Trafficking from Palisade Mesophyll to Spongy Mesophyll in Nicotiana benthamiana[W]

By Ryuta Takeda, Anton I. Petrov, Neocles B. Leontis and Biao Ding


Cell-to-cell trafficking of RNAs plays an important role in coordinating gene expression at the whole-plant level as well as in virus/viroid infection and host defense response. This work identifies a three-dimensional RNA structure motif in a viroid that mediates trafficking between the leaf mesophyll tissues, providing mechanistic insights into trafficking regulation
