Molecular and serological characterization of iris yellow spot virus, a new and distinct tospovirus species.
Both serological comparisons and sequence determination of the S RNA demonstrate that this virus represents a new and distinct species, belonging to a separate serogroup, and for which the name iris yellow spot virus (IYSV) is proposed. Expand
Identification of potyviruses using the polymerase chain reaction with degenerate primers.
It is shown that the degenerate primers support potyvirus-specific amplification, but do not support amplification on carlavirus and potexvirus templates. Expand
Molecular Characterization of Carla- and Potyviruses from Narcissus in China
Carlavirus fragments from both Chinese sites seemed to be of the same virus, which was most closely related in phylogenetic analyses to Potato virus M, Aconitum latent virus and Hop latent virus, most probably a new member of the genus Carlavirus. Expand
Effect of Organic Solvents on the Yield of Solvent-Tolerant Pseudomonas putida S12
Solvent-tolerant microorganisms are useful in biotransformations with whole cells in two-phase solvent-water systems, but energy-consuming adaptation processes as well as the uncoupling effect of the solvents reduce the yield of the tolerant cells. Expand
Characterization of potyviruses from tulip and lily which cause flower-breaking.
It appears that all tulip-breaking viruses are distinct viruses and TTBV was found to be strain-related to turnip mosaic virus. Expand
Molecular identification of potyviruses in dutch stocks of Narcissus
It is concluded that at least three different potyviruses occur in Dutch stocks of Narcissus and that narcissus silver streak virus is identical to narcissus late season yellows virus. Expand
Transformation of lily by Agrobacterium
SummaryLily cv. Harmony was inoculated with several Agrobacterium strains to study its susceptibility to Agrobacterium infection and transformation. Tumorous tissue formation on inoculated stemExpand
Homologies between the genomes of a carlavirus (lily symptomless virus) and a potexvirus (lily virus X) from lily plants.
cDNA clones complementary to the 3'-terminal regions of the genomic RNAs of the carlavirus lily symptomless virus and the potexvirus lily virus X (LVX) have been sequenced. The carlavirus RNAExpand
Detection of tospoviruses in bulbous crops and transmissibility by vegetative propagation
TSWV was detected in symptom-bearing leaves and also in the tunics connected with these leaves, but less frequent in other parts of the bulbs, which might explain the curing of the main bulbs after some years and the limited transmission of TSWV to the daughter bulbs. Expand
High sequence conservation among cucumber mosaic virus isolates from Lily
In general, nucleotide sequence comparisons correlated well with geographic distribution, with one notable exception: the analyzed nucleotide sequences of 5 lily isolates showed remarkably high homology despite different origins. Expand
