The origin of satellites remains obscure, but they are not derived from the helper virus. Satellite viruses may infect plants, animals, or bacteria.

Viroids: “living fossils” of primordial RNAs?

An example of a satellite virus is satellite tobacco necrosis virus, which encodes a capsid protein that forms an icosahedral capsid that packages only the 1, nucleotide satellite RNA. The helper virus, tobacco necrosis virus, encodes an RNA polymerase that replicates its genome and that of the satellite. Satellite RNAs do not encode a capsid protein and therefore require helper virus proteins for both genome encapsidation and replication.

Satellite RNA genomes range in length from nucleotides, and have been placed into one of three classes. Class 1 satellite RNAs are nucleotide linear molecules with a single open reading frame encoding at least one non-structural protein.

Class 2 satellite RNAs are linear, less than nucleotides long and do not encode protein. Class 3 satellite RNAs are nucleotide long circles without an open reading frame.

In plants, satellites and satellite viruses may attenuate or exacerbate disease caused by the helper virus. Examples of disease include necrosis and systemic chlorosis, or reduced chlorophyll production leading to leaves that are pale, yellow, or yellow-white. The symptoms induced by satellite RNAs are thought to be a consequence of silencing of host genes.

For example, the Y-satellite RNA of cucumber mosaic virus causes systemic chlorosis in tobacco.

This syndrome is caused by production of a small RNA from the Y-satellite RNA that has homology to a gene needed for chlorophyll biosynthesis. The giant DNA viruses including Acanthamoeba polyophaga mimivirus, Cafeteria roenbergensis virus, and others are associated with much smaller viruses sputnik and mavirus, respectively that depend upon the larger viruses for reproduction. For example, sputnik virus can only replicate in cells infected with mimivirus, and does so within viral factories.

Whether these are satellite viruses or something new they have been called virophages has been a matter of controversy. Like satellite viruses, sputnik and others have similar relationships with their helper viruses: they require their helper for their propagation, but their genomes are not derived from the helper, and they negatively impact helper reproduction.

Others argue that the definition of satellite viruses as sub-viral agents cannot apply to these very large viruses. Sputnik is dependent upon mimivirus not for DNA polymerase — it encodes its own — but probably for the transcriptional machinery of the helper virus. It seems likely that a redefinition of what constitutes a satellite virus will be required to solve this disagreement.

Most known satellites are associated with plant viruses, but hepatitis delta satellite virus is associated with a human helper virus, hepatitis B virus. The genome illustrated is 1.

These properties resemble those of viroid genomes. On the other hand, the genome encodes a protein delta that encapsidates the RNA, a property shared with satellite nucleic acids.

The hepatitis delta satellite virus particle comprises the satellite nucleocapsid packaged within an envelope that contains the surface protein of the helper, hepatitis B virus. Acute co-infections of the two viruses can be more severe than infection with hepatitis B virus alone, leading to more cases of liver failure. In chronic hepatitis B virus infections, hepatitis delta satellite virus aggravates pre-existing liver disease, and may lead to more rapid progression to cirrhosis and death than monoinfections.

Why co-infection with both viruses leads to more serious outcomes is not known. You can find TWiV at www. Viroids, infectious agents that encode no proteins 14 January Genomes of non-defective viruses range in size from 2,, bp of dsDNA Pandoravirus salinus to 1, bp of ssDNA porcine circovirus.

Are even smaller viral genomes possible? Viroids, the smallest known pathogens, are naked, circular, single-stranded RNA molecules that do not encode protein yet replicate autonomously when introduced into host plants.

Potato spindle tuber viroid, discovered in , is the prototype; 29 other viroids have since been discovered ranging in length from to nucleotides. Viroids only infect plants; some cause economically important diseases of crop plants, while others appear to be benign. Two examples of economically important viroids are coconut cadang-cadang viroid which causes a lethal infection of coconut palms and apple scar skin viroid which causes an infection that results in visually unappealing apples.

Viroids and the nature of viroid diseases.

The 30 known viroids have been classified in two families. The Avsunviroidae, named for avocado sunblotch viroid, have both rod-like and branched regions, but lack a central conserved region and replicate in chloroplasts.

In contrast to the Pospiviroidae, the latter RNA molecules are functional ribozymes, and this activity is essential for replication. There is no evidence that viroids encode proteins or mRNA.

Unlike viruses, which are parasites of host translation machinery, viroids are parasites of cellular transcription proteins: they depend on cellular RNA polymerase for replication.Unlike viruses, which are parasites of host translation machinery, viroids are parasites of cellular transcription proteins: they depend on cellular RNA polymerase for replication.

Now it seems that there may be a similar animal cell enzyme that involved in replicating hepatitis delta virus RNA. All virologists are encouraged to attend; registration is now open. Most of the properties of the structure and structural transitions of PSTV have been found also in citrus exocortis viroid, chrysanthemum stunt viroid and four different viroid-like RNAs associated with the cadang-cadang disease.

The helper virus undergoes typical viral replication independent of the activity of the virusoid. Making beautiful art depicting viruses, bacteria, and other life forms is a great way to make everyone aware of the beauty of science.
