The best levels of broad-spectrum Tospovirus resistance reported in tomatoes thus far are conferred by the Sw-5 locus. This locus contains at least five paralogues (denoted Sw-5a through Sw-5e), of which Sw-5b represents the actual resistance gene. Here we evaluated a panel of seven PCR primer pairs matching different sequences within a genomic region(More)
Potato virus Y (PVY) is the type-species of the genus Potyvirus, family Potyviridae, being reported as a major tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) pathogen in several regions of the world. Pepper yellow mosaic virus (PepYMV) was originally described as a resistance-breaking Potato virus Y (PVY) isolate on Capsicum annuum L. cultivars, and afterwards it was(More)
The genus Tospovirus was considered as monotypic with Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) being the only assigned species. However, extensive studies with worldwide isolates revealed that this genus comprises a number of species with distinct virulence profiles. The Neotropical South America is one center of Tospovirus diversity with many endemic species.(More)
