Abstract

Rice black-streaked dwarf virus (RBSDV) and Southern rice black-streaked dwarf virus (SRBSDV) are two closely related fijiviruses transmitted by the small brown planthopper (SBPH) and white-backed planthopper (WBPH), respectively. SRBSDV has a latent period 4 days shorter than that of RBSDV, implying a more efficient spread in insect vector. Currently, the mechanisms underlying this higher efficiency are poorly understood. However, our recent studies have implicated a role of virus induced tubular structures in the dissemination of fijiiruses within their insect vectors. Immunofluorescence labeling was performed to visualize and compare the dynamics of P7-1 tubule formation of the RBSDV and SRBSDV in their own vector insects and nonhost Spodoptera frugiperda (Sf9) cells. Tubule formation of SRBSDV P7-1 was faster than that of RBSDV P7-1. For RBSDV, P7-1 formed tubules were observed at 3-days post-first access to diseased plants (padp) in SBPH. For SRBSDV, these structures were detected as early as 1 day padp in WBPH. Importantly, similar phenomena were observed when P7-1 proteins from the two viruses were expressed alone in Sf9 cells. Our research revealed a relationship between the speed of P7-1 tubule formation and virus dissemination efficiency and also supports a role of such tubular structures in the spread of reoviruses within insect vectors.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 20 October 2016.
All research outputs
#14,036,885
of 15,918,484 outputs
Outputs from Virology Journal
#2,185
of 2,430 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#249,599
of 295,890 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Virology Journal
#178
of 183 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,918,484 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,430 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.8. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 295,890 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 183 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
