Genetic Variation of Citrus Tristeza VirusIsolates from California and Spain: Evidence for Mixed Infections and Recombination
ABSTRACT We examined the population structure and genetic variation of four genomic regions within and between 30 Citrus tristeza virus (CTV) isolates from Spain and California. Our analyses showedExpand

Genome structure and phylogenetic analysis of lettuce infectious yellows virus, a whitefly-transmitted, bipartite closterovirus.
We report the complete nucleotide sequences of lettuce infectious yellows virus (LIYV) RNAs 1 and 2. LIYV RNA 1 is 8118 nucleotides and includes three open reading frames (ORFs). Computer-assistedExpand

Biology and molecular biology of viruses in the genus Tenuivirus.
Viruses in the genus Tenuivirus (Tenuiviruses) cause a number of important diseases in economically important crop plants including rice and maize. Tenuiviruses are transmitted from plant to plant byExpand

Lettuce infectious yellows virus: in vitro acquisition analysis using partially purified virions and the whitefly Bemisia tabaci.
Virions of lettuce infectious yellows virus (LIYV; genus Crinivirus) were purified from LIYV-infected plants and their protein composition was analysed by SDS-PAGE and immunoblotting. VirionExpand

Geographically distant isolates of the crinivirus Cucurbit yellow stunting disorder virus show very low genetic diversity in the coat protein gene.
The population structure and genetic variation of Cucurbit yellow stunting disorder virus (CYSDV) isolates were estimated by single-strand conformation polymorphism and nucleotide sequence analysesExpand

Insect vector-mediated transmission of plant viruses.
The majority of plant-infecting viruses are transmitted to their host plants by vectors. The interactions between viruses and vector vary in duration and specificity but some common themes in vectorExpand
