Descripción
Mycoviruses or fungal viruses are fungi obligate parasites that are transmitted vertically through sporulation or horizontally through hyphal anastomosis. In the last years the interest to study the interaction between mycoviruses and plant pathogenic fungi has been increased. Most of the viruses that infect fungi have not effect on the fungal phenotype, however in some combinations the fungi take an advantage from the presence of the mycovirus, improving its survival in extreme conditions, as high temperature, or giving some other advantages, for instance growing faster than other competitor in the same host. In some cases, the viral presence confers to the fungus a hypovirulent phenotype, attenuating the ability to infect or to colonize tissues of susceptible plants. Based on these findings, the use of hypovirulent fungal strains, infected with mycoviruses, has been proposed as biological control agents against virulent strains of the same plant pathogenic fungus. Moreover, the understanding of plant-fungus-mycovirus interaction could help us to unravel the basic mechanisms responsible for pathogenesis in the fungal life inside the host plant.
