Identification, distribution and incidence of viruses in field-grown cucurbit crops of Iran
The high frequency of CABYV, WMV and ZYMV in the samples assayed on all four cucurbit crops and in all areas surveyed, as well as the detection of Watermelon chlorotic stunt virus (WmCSV) and Cucumber vein yellowing virus (CVYV) in northern and southern Iran, suggest that these viruses represent a potential threat to cucurbits crops in Iran. Expand
First Report of Cucurbit chlorotic yellows virus Infecting Cucumber, Melon, and Squash in Iran.
CCYV has first been proven to occur in different countries in East Asia and has recently been reported from Sudan and Lebanon, indicating the putative spread of the virus wherever cucurbits are grown and its vector, the whitefly Bemisia tabaci, is present. Expand
Molecular characterization of geographically different cucurbit aphid-borne yellows virus isolates.
Relatively close relationship and sequence similarity of geographically distant CABYV isolates could reflect the epidemic outbreak and rapid expansion of the virus throughout the world due to the host and vector abundance. Expand
Biological and Molecular Variability of Zucchini yellow mosaic virus in Iran
The phylogenetic analyses and the estimation of genetic distance indicate that the Iranian ZYMV group consists of several independent isolates, which are likely to form a compact cluster in the phylogenetic tree. Expand
Serological and Molecular Identification of Chickpea chlorotic stunt virus from Chickpea in Iran.
During a survey of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) crops in western Iran in July 2009, leaf samples from yellow and stunted plants were collected from fields in the provinces of Kermanshah and Lorestan, indicating infections by luteovirus. Expand
Begomoviruses Associated with Yellow Leaf Curl Disease of Tomato in Iran
The CP and IR sequence analyses suggested that eight Iranian TYLCV isolates probably differ from ToLCIRV-[IR:Ira], and these strains or species are probably associated with tomato yellow leaf curl disease in Iran. Expand

Since the first report of OuMV from melon in Azerbaijan-E-Gharbi Province, western Iran (1), there has been no report of OUMV occurrence in any other region of Iran or any other country in the world, and the sequence of OuVV remains to be determined. Expand
Genetic Diversity of Watermelon mosaic virus in Slovakia and Iran Shows Distinct Pattern.
Phylogenetic analysis using partial sequences of the P1 gene showed that Slovak WMV isolates had greater diversity, representing two groups, whereas all Iranian isolates belonged to a single group, with relatively low divergeance. Expand
Occurrence and distribution of ten viruses infecting cucurbit plants in Guilan province, Iran.

- Acta virologica
OmV, ZYMV, WMV, and WmCSV were the most prevalent viruses and were detected in tested cucurbit plants and suggested that these viruses might turn out to be an important threat for the melon and cucumber crops in the province. Expand
Molecular and Serological Identification of Cucumber leaf spot virus in Iran
This is the first report of the occurrence of the Cucumber leaf spot virus in Iran and sequence comparison with sequences available at GenBank showed 93% nucleotide sequence identity to CLSV isolates from Israel and Canada. Expand
