Abstract
Viruses are important selective forces for their hosts. As a consequence, hosts have developed a variety of mechanisms to prevent or limit virus infection (Resistance), and to reduce the effect of virus infection in the host fitness (Tolerance). Although resistance has been extensively studied, comparatively less is known about which, and how specific, are the host tolerance mechanisms. Because biological fitness cannot be maximized in every situation, mechanisms that increase tolerance to infection by a given virus may come at the cost of reduced tolerance upon infection with other viruses with different life-history traits, i.e., tolerance trade-offs. However, how tolerance is achieved and the potential trade-offs of tolerance to different viruses have been seldom analyzed. We have analyzed trade-offs in tolerance to infection by Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) and Turnip mosaic virus (TuMV) in their natural host Arabidopsis thaliana
