A new yellowing disease of cucurbits caused by a luteovirus, cucurbit aphid-borne yellows virus
TLDR
Serological analysis, nucleic-acid-hybridization experiments and host-range studies indicate that the virus CABYV is distantly related to, but distinct from, beet western yellows virus (BWYV), and it is proposed to name this virus cucurbit aphid-borne yellowsirus (CABYVs), and consider it as a tentative new member of the luteovirus group. Expand
Nucleotide sequence of cucurbit aphid-borne yellows luteovirus.
TLDR
Analysis of genome organization and sequence homologies indicate that CABYV is a member of luteovirus Subgroup 2 (other sequenced members: beet western yellows virus, potato leafroll virus, and barley yellow dwarf virus, RPV isolate) and appears to be most closely related to beet western yellsows virus.

Biological and serological variability, evolution and molecular epidemiology of Zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV, Potyvirus) with special reference to Caribbean islands.
TLDR
Sequence analysis on a 250 nucleotide fragment including the N-terminal part of the coat protein coding region revealed one major group of strains, and some highly divergent isolates from distinct origins of ZYMV. Expand
Serological and molecular variability of watermelon mosaic virus (genus Potyvirus)
TLDR
Serological and molecular tools developed to study WMV variability and the origin of severe strains suggested frequent intraspecific recombination in WMV. Expand
Vector-Assisted Seed Transmission of Melon Necrotic Spot Virus in Melon
TLDR
Seedborne virus rarely infected seedlings unless the vector was present, confirming VAST as a novel means of seed transmission that is possible because of the in vitro method of virus acquisition by O. bornovanus. Expand
Emergence of new strains of Watermelon mosaic virus in South-eastern France: evidence for limited spread but rapid local population shift.
TLDR
It was shown that EM isolates did not spread over long distances, but rapidly replaced the pre-existing CL isolates in all sites where both groups occurred, and a strong geographic structure that remained stable during the 4 years was observed between different EM isolate groups. Expand
Synthesis of a full-length infectious cDNA clone of cucurbit aphid-borne yellows virus and its use in gene exchange experiments with structural proteins from other luteoviruses.
A full-length cDNA of cucurbit aphid-borne yellows virus (CABYV) has been constructed and expressed either as an in vitro transcript, under control of a bacteriophage T7 RNA polymerase promoter, orExpand
OCCURRENCE OF CUCURBIT YELLOW STUNTING DISORDER VIRUS AND CUCUMBER VEIN YELLOWING VIRUS IN TUNISIA
TLDR
During surveys carried out in June and October 2005 and August 2006, samples of squash, melon and snake cucumber showing virus-like symptoms were collected from the major cucurbit-growing areas and the identification of CYSDV and CVYV was confirmed by immunosorbent electron microscopy. Expand
Increase in Zucchini yellow mosaic virus Symptom Severity in Tolerant Zucchini Cultivars Is Related to a Point Mutation in P3 Protein and Is Associated with a Loss of Relative Fitness on Susceptible
TLDR
This represents the first quantitative study of the fitness cost associated with tolerance breaking for a plant virus and suggests that although easily broken, the tolerance might prove durable in some conditions if the aggressive variants are counterselected in susceptible crops. Expand
