The complete nucleotide sequence of an Indian strain of Cymbidium mosaic virus (CymMV) was determined and compared with other potexviruses. Phylogenetic analyses on the basis of RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp), triple gene block protein and coat protein (CP) amino acid sequences revealed that CymMV is closely related to the Narcissus mosaic virus (NMV),(More)
The complete genomic nucleotide sequence of an Indian isolate of Lily symptomless virus (LSV) was determined by sequencing 11 overlapping cDNA fragments of different sizes. The genome consisted of 8,394 nucleotides, excluding the poly (A) tail and contained six open reading frames (ORFs) coding protein for ORF1 220 kDa [1,948 amino acid (aa)], ORF2 25 kDa(More)
Relatively recent data from the literature show some discrepancies between bioactive LH (Bio-LH) and radioimmunoreactive LH (Ria-LH) in different endocrinological conditions. In 202 subjects of both sexes we have studied biologically active and immunoreactive LH and their ratio (B/l ratio) pattern through life. The results show that in male puberty the in(More)
A simple method to amplify infective, complete genomes of single stranded RNA viruses by long distance PCR (LD PCR) from woody plant tissues is described in detail. The present protocol eliminates partial purification of viral particles and the amplification is achieved in three steps: (i) easy preparation of template RNA by incorporating a pre processing(More)
Indian citrus ringspot virus (ICRSV) is known to cause serious problem in Kinnow (Citrus nobilis Lour × C. deliciosa Tenora). This paper reports the elimination of ICRSV from Kinnow by chemotherapy coupled with shoot tip grafting under in vitro conditions. Nodal segments from infected mother plant (indexed by indirect ELISA and RT-PCR) were cultured on MS(More)
