Title: Expression and function of cucumoviral genomes / by Bu-Jun Shi.

Abstract: The aim of this thesis is to characterise subgenomic RNAs of cucumoviruses and the functions of their encoding genes. Strains of cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) are classified into two major subgroups (I and II) on the basis of nucleotide sequence homology. The V strain of tomato aspermy virus (V-TAV) and a subgroup I CMV strain (WAII) are chosen to determine whether the 2b genes encoded by these viruses are expressed 'in vivo'. For further investigation of the 2b gene function, cDNA clones of three genomic RNAs of V-TAV are constructed. Using the infectious cDNA clones of V-TAV, a mutant virus containing only one of the two repeats is constructed.
