Disease relevance of NSm

  • The nonstructural NSm protein of tomato spotted wilt tospovirus (TSWV) represents a putative viral movement protein involved in cell-to-cell movement of nonenveloped ribonucleocapsid structures [1].
  • The 33.6-kDa nonstructural (NSM) protein gene, located on the ambisense M RNA segment of tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV), was cloned and expressed using the Escherichia coli pET-11t expression system [2].

High impact information on NSm

  • The expression and subcellular location of the 33.6-kDa nonstructural protein NSm of tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) was analyzed in Nicotiana rustica plants and protoplasts as a function of time [3].
  • Using this technique, structural and nonstructural proteins of TSWV were readily detected and specifically labelled in cells of the insect vector, the western flower thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande), and in infected cells of the plant species, Emilia sonchifolia L [4].
