Virus-Induced Modification of Subnuclear Domain Functions
The nucleus and subnuclear structures such as Cajal bodies and the nucleolus function as pleiotropic control centres which regulate cellular activities. In recent years it has been found that proteins encoded by diverse genera of plant viruses can localize and interact with components of these structures during the infection process. In some cases such interactions are required for successful replication and systemic spread of the viruses, whereas in other cases these associations are detrimental to virus infection. This chapter aims to discuss the types of interaction at the mechanistic level, to provide the reader with a broad understanding of the role of subnuclear domains during plant virus infections.
