Abstract

Turnip crinkle virus can suppress the host plant's ability to defend itself via a programmed cell death response. A large scale analysis of gene expression differences between suppressed and nonsuppressed TCV-infected tissues was done using a DNA micro array. Results indicate suppression of the genes coding for Osmotin , ACC oxidase, and Dehydrin plays a key role in the suppression of the hypersensitive response in symptomatic plants.
