Phylogenetic analysis of isolates of Beet necrotic yellow vein virus collected worldwide.
TLDR
A study of molecular diversity was carried out on 136 sugar beets infected with Beet necrotic yellow vein virus (BNYVV, Benyvirus) and the results suggest that selective constraints are exerted differently on the proteins. Expand
Genetic characterization of Pepino mosaic virus isolates from Belgian greenhouse tomatoes reveals genetic recombination
TLDR
The genetic diversity of the PepMV population in Belgian greenhouses is studied and related to symptom development in tomato crops, and it is revealed that PepMv recombinants frequently occur in mixed infections under natural conditions. Expand
Multiplex Reverse Transcription-PCR for Simultaneous Detection of Beet Necrotic Yellow Vein Virus, Beet Soilborne Virus, and Beet Virus Q and Their Vector Polymyxa betae KESKIN on Sugar Beet
TLDR
A multiplex reverse transcription-PCR technique was developed to simultaneously detect BNYVV, BSBV, and BVQ, together with their vector, P. betae, in sugar beet samples from Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Sweden, and The Netherlands. Expand
Exposure of several Belgian consumer groups to pesticide residues through fresh fruit and vegetable consumption
TLDR
It was demonstrated that washing and peeling of fruit and vegetables result in an exposure that is probably five to six times lower than the 'acceptable daily intake' or ADI, and there are however, indications that for some pesticides the ADI can be exceeded. Expand
Pepino mosaic virus isolates and differential symptomatology in tomato
TLDR
Results of this study show that differential symptom expression can, at least partially, be attributed to the PepMV isolate, which may be related to minor differences at the nucleotide level between isolates. Expand
Xanthomonas translucens from Small Grains: Diversity and Phytopathological Relevance.
TLDR
The current results, as well as those of previous restriction fragment length polymorphism analyses of the same strains, support the recent reclassification of X. translucens and X. hordei as true synonyms. Expand
Virus-like particles assemble in plants and bacteria expressing the coat protein gene of Indian peanut clump virus.
TLDR
Results show that encapsidation does not require the presence of the 5'-terminal untranslated sequence of the virus RNA and suggest that if there is an 'origin of assembly' motif or sequence, it lies within the CP gene. Expand
Scientific Opinion on the risk to plant health posed by Xylella fastidiosa in the EU territory, with the identification and evaluation of risk reduction options
TLDR
The EFSA Panel on Plant Health conducted a pest risk assessment and an evaluation of risk reduction options for Xylella fastidiosa and recommends the continuation and intensification of research on the host range, epidemiology and control of the Apulian outbreak. Expand
Status and prospects of plant virus control through interference with vector transmission.
TLDR
The current understanding of virus transmission by aphids, thrips, whiteflies, leafhopper, planthoppers, treehoppers, mites, nematodes, and zoosporic endoparasites is described and strategies for control of vectors by host resistance, chemicals, and integrated pest management are reviewed. Expand
