Proteolytic cleavage of the N-terminal region of potyvirus coat protein and its relation to host recovery and vector transmission

  • R. Salomon
Part of the Archives of Virology book series (ARCHIVES SUPPL, volume 5)


The proteolytic cleavage of potyvirus coat N-terminal region is discussed with relation to host recovery and aphid transmission. The relationship of this coat protein region and the HC, may affect the host range and should be considered in this virus group classification.
