Cellular pathways for viral transport through plasmodesmata
Plant viruses use plasmodesmata (PD) to spread infection between cells and systemically. Dependent on viral species, movement
through PD can occur in virion or non-virion form, and requires different mechanisms for targeting and modification of the
pore. These mechanisms are supported by viral movement proteins and by other virus-encoded factors that interact among themselves
and with plant cellular components to facilitate virus movement in a coordinated and regulated fashion.
