  1. Chong J, Baltz R, Schmitt C, Beffa R, Fritig B, Saindrenan P. Downregulation of a pathogen-responsive tobacco UDP-Glc:phenylpropanoid glucosyltransferase reduces scopoletin glucoside accumulation, enhances oxidative stress, and weakens virus resistance. Plant Cell. 2002;14:1093-107 pubmed
    ..We propose that TOGT-mediated glucosylation is required for scopoletin accumulation in cells surrounding TMV lesions, where this compound could both exert a direct antiviral effect and participate in ROI buffering. ..
  2. Hugo N, Weidenhaupt M, Beukes M, Xu B, Janson J, Vernet T, et al. VL position 34 is a key determinant for the engineering of stable antibodies with fast dissociation rates. Protein Eng. 2003;16:381-6 pubmed
    ..This first demontration of similar effects observed in two antibodies with different specificities may open the way to the predictive design of molecules with enhanced stability and fast dissociation rates. ..
  3. Gachon C, Baltz R, Saindrenan P. Over-expression of a scopoletin glucosyltransferase in Nicotiana tabacum leads to precocious lesion formation during the hypersensitive response to tobacco mosaic virus but does not affect virus resistance. Plant Mol Biol. 2004;54:137-46 pubmed
    ..These results are discussed in relation to the role of TOGT as the major UDP-Glc: scopoletin glucosyltransferase and to the importance of scopoletin accumulation during the HR. ..

    ..Thus, results obtained from studies using microtubule inhibitors may have to remain open to interpretation with regard to the involvement of microtubules in viral RNA trafficking. ..
  6. Hofmann C, Sambade A, Heinlein M. Plasmodesmata and intercellular transport of viral RNA. Biochem Soc Trans. 2007;35:142-5 pubmed
    ..Studies using tobacco mosaic virus have led to the identification of host components that participate in plasmodesmal targeting of viral RNA and movement protein...

    ..These findings suggest that MP interacts with EB1 and that this interaction may play a role in the associations of MP with the microtubule system during infection. ..
  8. Hofmann C, Niehl A, Sambade A, Steinmetz A, Heinlein M. Inhibition of tobacco mosaic virus movement by expression of an actin-binding protein. Plant Physiol. 2009;149:1810-23 pubmed publisher
    ..Nevertheless, actin-binding proteins appear to have the potential to exert control over TMV movement through the inhibition of myosin-associated protein trafficking along the ER membrane...
  9. Sambade A, Brandner K, Hofmann C, Seemanpillai M, Mutterer J, Heinlein M. Transport of TMV movement protein particles associated with the targeting of RNA to plasmodesmata. Traffic. 2008;9:2073-88 pubmed publisher
    ..These and other observations suggest that the microtubule network performs anchorage and release functions for controlling the assembly and intracellular movement of MP-containing RNA transport particles in association with the ER...
