Disease relevance of CP

  • Its coat protein (CP) sequence is highly homologous to that of Indian cassava mosaic virus (90%) [1].
  • Based on the comparisons at the levels of both CP gene nucleotide and CP-deduced amino acid sequences with other geminiviruses, SqLCV-C is confirmed to be distinct from the American squash leaf curl virus (SqLCV-E) [2].

High impact information on CP

  • The sub-cellular localization of the betaC1 protein has been compared with that of the CP in yeast cells using a genetic system for detection of protein nuclear import and export [3].
