AN INTEGRATED GENOMIC, PROTEOMIC AND TRANSCRIPTOMIC APPROACH TO PLUM POX VIRUS RESISTANCE IN PRUNUS
Viral diseases are among the major limiting factors for stone fruit trees (Prunus) cultivation. The main disease threatening stone fruit production is sharka. It is caused by Plum pox virus (PPV) belonging to the Potyvirus genus within the family Potyviridae. Therefore the development of new Prunus cultivars resistant is the most valuable agronomic characteristics in our breeding program. However, despite the fact that resistance to PPV has been studied for many years, the genetic control and molecular basis are still unclear. In this communication, the different approaches in the study of PPV resistance in Prunus species were described and the results have been compared and discussed including the genomic (DNA regions responsible for PPV), the proteomic (proteins involved in the interaction with PPV) and the transcriptomic (gene expression analysis of the resistance) approaches.
