Plant disease biocontrol by means of non-infectious biodegradable proteinaceous nanoparticles: characterisation of nanoparticles engineered for displaying elicitor/antimicrobial properties

Abstract : Reducing the environmental impact of plant pest control practices is a current issue and one strategy is the development of new eco-friendly biocontrol molecules as an alternative to the intensive use of pesticides. The CowPea Mosaic Virus (CPMV) is a phytopathogenic agent which can be modified to produce empty virus-like particles (eCPMV), i.e. devoid of RNA harbouring selected peptides on their outer surface. The combination of naturally occurring peptides, like ITPs or AMPs – able to induce plant defence or displaying antimicrobial activity respectively – together with the structural stability of eCPMV would give rise to the development of new nano-compounds for plant disease management. In the frame of the NANOBIOAGRI project, five diverse functionalised nanoparticles were previously designed and expressed in N. benthamiana plants by agro-infiltration
