Molecular Interactions Between the Pea Aphid and Pea enation mosaic virus

Luke Linz, Department of Entomology and Program in Microbiology, ISU
Abstract: Aphid transmission of plant viruses results in tremendous economic loss. The goal of this research was to increase our understanding of the molecular interactions that facilitate recognition and uptake of the model luteovirid, Pea enation mosaic virus (PEMV) into the pea aphid vector, Acyrthosiphon pisum. We identified the gut receptor for PEMV in the pea aphid, which is the first receptor in an insect to be identified for a plant virus.
