P. Rybicki and D. P. Martin where heterodimeric or greater associations are need to produce a functional protein. In the first place, the host range of ssDNA plant viruses is vast: if one only considers crop plants, the range includes such staples as maize, wheat, rice, banana, tomato, potato, cassava, sweet potato, sugar beets, cotton and beans. In one justification for the establishment of BCTV curtovirus as a silencing vector, Golenberg et al. (2009) point out that it infects 41 families of dicotyledonous plants in six subclasses—including several useful and well-characterised production hosts such as Fabaceae and Solanaceae.
