Term Information

Accession
GO:0009616
Name
virus induced gene silencing
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
VIGS, virus-induced gene silencing
Alternate IDs
None
Definition
Specific posttranscriptional gene inactivation ('silencing') both of viral gene(s), and host gene(s) homologous to the viral genes. This silencing is triggered by viral infection, and occurs through a specific decrease in the level of mRNA of both host and viral genes. Source: GOC:jl
Comment
Virus-induced gene silencing (VIGS) is a RNA-mediated post-transcriptional gene silencing mechanism that protects plants against foreign gene invasion.
