(A) Both p23 and CP genes were detected in the newly emerged leaves of plants infected with two mutants (H A) and (K, R A, A) at 19 dpi using RT-PCR. Actin gene was used as a loading control. The band intensity of each gene transcript from RT-PCR results was quantified using ImageJ. (B) Detection of HCRSV-CP protein in the wt, mutants H to A and K, R to A, A in the newly emerged kenaf leaves at 19 dpi. The CP expression level was below detection level for the two mutants.
