Abstract

Plus-stranded RNA viruses co-opt host proteins to promote their robust replication in infected hosts. Tomato bushy stunt tombusvirus (TBSV) is a model virus that can replicate a small replicon RNA in yeast and in plants. The tombusvirus replicase complex contains the heat shock protein 70 (Hsp70), an abundant cytosolic chaperone, which is required for TBSV replication. To dissect the function of Hsp70 in TBSV replication, in this paper we use an Hsp70 mutant (ssa1ssa2) yeast strain that supports low level of TBSV replication. Using confocal laser microscopy and cellular fractionation experiments, we find that the localization of the viral replication proteins changes to cytosolic in the mutant cells from peroxisomal membrane-bound in wild type cells. An in vitro membrane insertion assay shows that Hsp70 promotes the integration of the viral replication proteins into subcellular membranes. This step seems to be critical for the assembly of the viral replicase complex. Using gene silencing approach and quercetin chemical inhibitor to down regulate Hsp70 levels, we also confirm the significance of cytosolic Hsp70 in replication of TBSV and other plant viruses in a plant host. Taken together, our results suggest that the cytosolic Hsp70 plays multiple roles in TBSV replication, such as affecting subcellular localization and membrane insertion of the viral replication proteins as well as the assembly of the viral replicase.
