Virus-mediated suppression of host non-self recognition facilitates horizontal transmission of heterologous viruses
Jiatao Xie and colleagues look at the hypovirulence-associated mycoreovirus, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum mycoreovirus 4 (SsMYRV4). They find that SsMYRV4 is capable of suppressing host non self-recognition and facilitating heterologous viruses transmission among host individuals.
