  1. Del Toro F, Donaire L, Aguilar E, Chung B, Tenllado F, Canto T. Potato Virus Y HCPro Suppression of Antiviral Silencing in Nicotiana benthamiana Plants Correlates with Its Ability To Bind In Vivo to 21- and 22-Nucleotide Small RNAs of Viral Sequence. J Virol. 2017;91: pubmed publisher
    ..Together, our results support the physical binding of HCPro to vsRNAs of 21 and 22 nt as a means to interfere with antiviral silencing. ..
  2. Del Toro F, Rakhshandehroo F, Larruy B, Aguilar E, Tenllado F, Canto T. Effects of simultaneously elevated temperature and CO2 levels on Nicotiana benthamiana and its infection by different positive-sense RNA viruses are cumulative and virus type-specific. Virology. 2017;511:184-192 pubmed publisher
    ..Under either condition, infections did not significantly alter the protein content of leaf discs. Therefore, effects of elevated temperature and CO2 combined on properties of the pathosystems studied were overall cumulative. ..
