Abstract
Plant viruses spread from cell to cell via plasmodesmata, which bridge the rigid cell wall and connect adjacent cells. The spread of infection is aide d by interactions between the virus and the host components. These interact ions have been intensively studied to understand the crosstalk between path ogen and host. The use of green fluorescent protein has shed new light an t he close association between viral movement proteins and elements of the cy toskeleton and the endomembrane system.
