This laboratory has previously shown that nuclear import of CaMV P6 is required for infection and suppression of the RNA silencing factor DRB4. EMBO J., 27:2102 - 2112. In the original paper, there were inadvertent errors in the mounting of a figure. We have now repeated the experiments concerned, using the seed stock of the corresponding transgenic plants. The results presented here confirm those reported in the original paper. The plants expressing P6 are strongly stunted with chlorotic and serrated leaves. Conversely, the transgenic expression of various P6 mutant alleles do not induce this phenotype.
