33 Construction of environmentally safe plant virus vectors Chair of Gene Technology - Department of Gene Technology - Faculty of Science - Tallinn University of Technology Estonia Erkki Truve (Leader) 2004 - 2007 We propose:
i) to construct a new plant virus vector based on cocksfoot mottle sobemovirus (CfMV, an efficiently propagating virus with icosahedral particles which infects monocots growing in temperate pastures);
ii) to insert strong antigenic determinants from animal pathogens into the constructed vector;
iii) to immunise mice with CfMV-infected plant material;
iv) to compare the efficiency of vaccines expressed from differently modified CfMV-based vectors;
v) to test the potential of sobemoviruses to recombine in monocot hosts and map the hotspots of recombination;
vi) to mutate the possible recombination hotspots in CfMV-based vector;
vii) to test the modified CfMV-based vector for potential recombinations with naturally occurring sobemoviruses;
viii) to screen Estonian fields and pastures for the possible occurrence of CfMV-related sobemoviruses.

34 Post-transcriptional gene silencing and its suppressors Chair of Gene Technology - Department of Gene Technology - Faculty of Science - Tallinn University of Technology Estonia Erkki Truve (Leader) 2004 - 2007 The first objective of the proposed project is to characterize viral suppressors of PTGS from plant virus genus Sobemovirus and to a lesser extent from genus Potyvirus. We plan also to analyse other functions of these named suppressors during the virus life cycle.
The second objective of the project is the identification of host factors required for PTGS. For that we plan to exploit the molecular approach by using bacterial and yeast two hybrid systems, co-immunoprecipitations (IPs) and other techniques to identify host components interacting with the suppressors of PTGS.
Besides these genome-wide screening approaches it is planned to focus more specifically on the potential role in gene silencing of some plant proteins homologous to animal RNA-degrading 2-5A system

35 Expression and function of plant and plant virus genes Chair of Gene Technology - Department of Gene Technology - Faculty of Science - Tallinn University of Technology Estonia Erkki Truve (Leader) 2003 - 2007 The main task of the project is to describe the mechanisms of gene silencing in higher plants and clarify the role of viruses in the process.
First of all, we plan to identify plant genes which products interact with viral gene silencing suppressors. As gene silencing is studied using viral proteins, the second task of the project is to identify the biological functions of cocksfoot mottle sobemovirus (CfMV) genes and to describe the mechanisms how this particular virus affects antiviral gene silencing mechanisms in host plant.
We also plan to elaborate a novel virus-induced gene silencing vector for cereals, based on the infectious cDNA clone of CfMV.
In parallel with studies on sobemoviruses and gene silencing we shall study also the role of potato A potyvirus proteins P1 and HC-Pro in this novel mechanism of gene expression regulation.
Besides focusing on the studies on gene silencing mechanisms, we foresee also the application of gene silencing for the functional analysis plant genes (RNase L inhibitor) as well as gene families (myosin and myosin-like genes).

2004 - 2009 In plants, RNA-directed DNA methylation (RdDM) represents one of the mechanisms that leads to establishment of de novo methylation patterns. Interestingly, not only RdDM but also transcriptional (TGS) and post-transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS) are initiated by double stranded RNA (dsRNA). Gene imprinting and X-chromosome inactivation in mammals seem to be correlated with production of sense/antisense RNA and with occurrence of de novo DNA methylation. Thus, it is reasonable to assume that RdDM also exists in mammals and that it is involved in epigenetic processes. In order to find evidence for this hypothesis, RdDM which is still barely characterised should be investigated in a plant system. With the expected data it could be possible to analyse whether de novo methylation can be directed by RNA in mammals. Tobacco Potato spindle tuber viroid Nicotiana tabacum

2004 - 2009 In plants, four RDR homologues are presumably expressed. RDR1 seems to be directly involved in a virus defense mechanism. RDR2 is associated with nuclear processes (nuclear RNAi) and is essential for RNA-directed DNA methylation (RdDM). RDR6 is one of the key enzymes of post-transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS) and is mainly active in the cytoplasm. So far, no data have been published on the biological function of the RDR3a-3c homologues. To gain further information about the functionality of these enzymes all RDR cDNA sequences were isolated from N. tabacum. They will now be specifically inactivated in tobacco plants to analyze possible effects on PTGS, to examine variations in virus accumulation and to characterize the establishment of de novo DNA methylation patterns. In addition, tagged RDRs will be expressed in tobacco to identify RNA or protein components that associate with RDRs. Characterization of the components should help to extend our current knowledge on PTGS and RdDM. Tobacco Potato spindle tuber viroid Nicotiana tabacum

2004 - 2006 Viroids are the smallest known pathogens. They are circularly closed RNA molecules, exclusively infect plants and in Europe, they are detectable in grape vine, hop and citruses. However, they are also found in ornamental plants, e.g. Chrysanthemum and Coleus. Two viroids, the potato spindle tuber viroid (PSTVd) and the chrysanthemum stunt viroid (CSVd) are classified as quarantine pathogens. This classification caused major problems for ornamental plant breeders as they must guarantee that only viroid-free Chrysanthemum plants are brought on the market. In contrast to that the coleus blumei viroid (CbVd) is not registered. Interestingly, we could show that all Coleus plants on the Euopean market that we analyzed were heavily infected with CbVd.

2004 - 2009 In plants, RNA-directed DNA methylation (RdDM) represents one of the mechanisms that leads to establishment of de novo methylation patterns. Interestingly, not only RdDM but also transcriptional (TGS) and post-transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS) are initiated by double stranded RNA (dsRNA). Gene imprinting and X-chromosome inactivation in mammals seem to be correlated with production of sense/antisense RNA and with occurrence of de novo DNA methylation. Thus, it is reasonable to assume that RdDM also exists in mammals and that it is involved in epigenetic processes. In order to find evidence for this hypothesis, RdDM which is still barely characterised should be investigated in a plant system. With the expected data it could be possible to analyse whether de novo methylation can be directed by RNA in mammals. Tobacco Potato spindle tuber viroid Nicotiana tabacum

2006 - 2009 Because of their highly ordered structure, mature viroid RNA molecules were assumed to be resistant to degradation by RNA interference (RNAi). Here we report that a transgenic tomato plant line expressing a hairpin construct derived from Potato spindle tuber viroid (PSTVd) sequences exhibited resistance to PSTVd infection. This was correlated with the high level accumulation of hairpin-derived short interfering RNAs (siRNAs) in the plant. Thus, in contrast to small RNAs produced in PSTVd-infected non-transgenic plants (srPSTVds), these hairpin-derived siRNAs (hp-siRNAs) appeared to efficiently target the mature viroid RNA. Genomic mapping of the hp-siRNAs revealed an unequal distribution of 21 and 24 nt siRNAs of both (+)- and (-)-strand polarities along the PSTVd genome. These data suggest that RNAi can be employed to engineer plants for viroid resistance, as has been well established for viruses. Potato spindle tuber viroid Lycopersicon esculentum in house funding

2006 and after In Europe, United States and Australia, PSTVd is classified as a quarantine pathogen. Infection of potato and tomato plants can lead to massive crop losses. Since late 2006, an epidemic outbreak of PSTVd in ornamental plants Solanum jasminoides, S. rantonnetii and Brugmansia spp. has been reported in at least the Netherlands, Germany and Italy. In contrast to tomato and potato, these ornamental plants do not develop visible disease symptoms with PSTVd infection. Unfortunately, infected plants were already widely distributed throughout Europe before viroid detection. Since transmission to crop plants is always a potential threat and PSTVd-resistant tomato and potato plants are not available, the production and distribution of ornamental PSTVd host plant species have been restricted. The restriction has severe economic impact on European plant producers, arguing for the availability of PSTVd-resistant crop plants. Ornamental plants Potato spindle tuber viroid

65 HC-Pro silencing suppressor Epigenetics - AlPlanta-Institute for Plant Research - RLP AgroScience Germany Michael Wassenegger (Leader)
Marc Füllgrabe
2007 - 2009 It is important to understand the mechanisms of symptom development in response to virus infection to design new strategies to produce virus resistant plants. In general, symptoms induced by potyviruses are based on the cellular effects of one of their proteins, the helper-component proteinase (HC-Pro). In plants, the HC-Pro interferes with small RNA metabolism and function, and such interference is associated with anomalous plant development. The central region in the HC-Pro is associated with suppressor activity and RNA binding. A mutation within a highly conserved amino acid (FRNK) motif of the zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV) HC-Pro dramatically changes the severe wild type strain to an asymptomatic strain, but does not affect its accumulation in squash plants and suppressor activity is maintained. The ability of this mutation to uncouple symptoms from virus accumulation creates a unique opportunity to study the etiology of symptoms. In other potyviridae such a mutation in the HC-Pro always resulted in loss of infectivity. Our goal is to determine how this and other mutations in this conserved ZYMV HC-Pro motif affect host responses to potyvirus infection in cucurbit plants. In particular, we will focus on the effect of HC-Pro on small RNA accumulation. Zucchini yellow mosaic virus Nicotiana benthamiana Germany Research Foundation (DFG)

2007 - 2009 In order to promote health protection, the subsidy of tobacco production will be discontinued, step by step. To safeguard the future income of the producers, Brussels is currently looking at alternatives. It mainly favours the conversion of tobacco production to other crops. It is, however, questionable whether the production of alternative crops to tobacco can completely compensate for the loss of subsidies. A complete conversion of tobacco production in Rhineland-Palatinate may therefore not be expendient. For this reason, our work aims at utilising tobacco plants for other purpose than the production of cigarettes.
Our aim is to develop an innovative strategy which allows a high production rate of economically interesting recombinant pharmaceutical proteins of in tobacco ("bioreactor"). For this purpose, a plant defence mechanism targeting the expression of foreign genes, which has until now severely limited the profitability of plants as bioreactors, shall be inhibited (For further details about the project see AlPlanta-FNR-Tobacco as Bioreactor.

67 Identification of enzyme complexes involved in de novo DNA-methylation in living plant cells using Spectrally Assigned Localization Microscopy (SALM) Epigenetics - AlPlanta-Institute for Plant Research - RLP AgroScience Germany Michael Wassenegger (Leader)
Mario Braun
2008 - 2009 In eukaryotic organisms, RNA-mediated heterochromatin formation is a powerful mechanism regulating many developmental processes and acting as a defence mechanism against foreign nucleic acids. At least in plants, heterochromatin formation is essentially initiated by DNA hypermethylation which in turn involves a sequence-specific de novo methylation process termed RNA-directed DNA methylation (RdDM). Only in plants, the function of most of the components associated with RdDM is well described rendering plants ideal model systems to study de novo DNA methylation. It is of broad interest to understand how DNA methylases are guided to their target sequences. However, to elucidate these dynamic processes it is essential to investigate living cells. We therefore aim at applying the 'Spectrally Assigned Localization Microscopy' (SALM) to monitor for the first time the in vivo formation of enzyme complexes involved in RdDM and their targeting. We wish to show the direction interaction of these complexes with the genomic DNA. At present, however, we do not know if the SALM technology will allow us to detect single enzyme complexes interacting with target regions along the chromosomes. Nicotiana tabacum

2005 - 2010 Objective of this project is to use cDNA-AFLP technology for large-scale analysis of the alterations of transcriptional profiles associated to CMV infection in tomato and in wild accessions of Solanum spp., preliminarily proven to be tolerant to some aggressive CMV/satRNA combinations, namely CMV-FN (necrogenic phenotype on tomato) and CMV-FS (stunting phenotype on tomato). The aim is the identification of gene groupings involved in the tomato-CMV-satRNA molecular interactions without earlier knowledge of the complete host genome sequence. Tomato Cucumber mosaic virus
