Nucleotide sequence of the 3'-terminal two-thirds of the grapevine leafroll-associated virus-3 genome reveals a typical monopartite closterovirus.
The RNA genome of grapevine leafroll-associated closterovirus-3 (GLRaV-3) was cloned as a cDNA generated from GLRaV-3-specific dsRNA, and a partial genome sequence of 13154 nucleotides (nt) includingExpand

Virus Resistant Papaya Plants Derived from Tissues Bombarded with the Coat Protein Gene of Papaya Ringspot Virus
Papaya ringspot virus (PRV) is a serious disease of papaya (Carica papaya L.) that has only been partially controlled by conventional methods. An alternative control method is coat protein-mediatedExpand

Nucleotide sequence and genome organization of grapevine leafroll-associated virus-2 are similar to beet yellows virus, the closterovirus type member.
The entire genome of grapevine leafroll-associated closterovirus-2 (GLRaV-2), except the exact 5' terminus, was cloned and sequenced. The sequence encompasses nine open reading frames (ORFs) whichExpand

Rupestris Stem Pitting Associated Virus-1 is Consistently Detected in Grapevines that are Infected with Rupestris Stem Pitting
Rupestris stem pitting (RSP) appears to be the most widespread disease of the rugose wood complex of grapevines. In previous work we showed that rupestris stem pitting associated virus-1 (RSPaV-1),Expand
