One of the most effective ways to protect cultivated crops from virus diseases is to produce virus-resistant transgcnic plants. During the last fifteen years several virus-resistant plants have been produced by genetic engineering in different laboratories all over the world. Among the transgcnc technologies involving genes of virus origin constructs containing coat protein genes have been used for plant transformation on a wide scale. This technology has been successfully used in several plant-virus combinations. The review summarises the research and application data related to coat protein-mediated cross protection in transgcnic plants.
