The draft genome of the transgenic tropical fruit tree papaya (Carica papaya Linnaeus)
TLDR
Papaya offers numerous advantages as a system for fruit-tree functional genomics, and this draft genome sequence provides the foundation for revealing the basis of Carica’s distinguishing morpho-physiological, medicinal and nutritional properties.
Control of papaya ringspot virus in papaya: a case study.
  • D. Gonsalves
  • Biology, Medicine
    Annual review of phytopathology
  • 1998
TLDR
This review focuses on efforts to control the destructiveness of the disease caused by PSRV in Hawaii, starting from the use of cross protection to parasite-derived resistance with transgenic papaya expressing thePSRV coat protein gene.
The family Closteroviridae revised
TLDR
The mealybug-transmitted species have been separated from the genus Closterovirus and accommodated in a new genus named Ampelovirus (from ampelos, Greek for grapevine), and the family now comprises three genera.
Safety of virus-resistant transgenic plants two decades after their introduction: lessons from realistic field risk assessment studies.
TLDR
This review focuses on safety assessment with a special emphasis on crops that have been commercialized or extensively tested in the field such as squash, papaya, plum, grape, and sugar beet, and recommends realistic risk assessment approaches to assist their timely deregulation and release.
Nucleotide sequence of the 3'-terminal two-thirds of the grapevine leafroll-associated virus-3 genome reveals a typical monopartite closterovirus.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis using various gene sequences clearly demonstrated that GLRaV-3, a mealybug- transmissible closterovirus, is positioned independently from aphid-transmissible monopartite closterviruses (beet yellows, citrus tristeza and beet yellows stunt) and whitefly-transmitted bipartiteClosterov virus (lettuce infectious yellsows, LIYV).
Virus Resistant Papaya Plants Derived from Tissues Bombarded with the Coat Protein Gene of Papaya Ringspot Virus
TLDR
An efficient gene transfer system utilizing microprojectile-mediated transformation of 2,4-D-treated immature zygotic embryos with a plasmid construction that contains the neomycin phosphotransferase II and β-glucuronidase genes flanking a PRV cp gene expression cassette is reported.
Papaya ringspot virus-P: characteristics, pathogenicity, sequence variability and control.
TLDR
Papaya ringspot virus is an aphid-transmitted plant virus belonging to the genus Potyvirus, family Potyviridae, with a positive sense RNA genome that is naturally transmitted via aphids in a non-persistent manner.
Nucleotide sequence and genome organization of grapevine leafroll-associated virus-2 are similar to beet yellows virus, the closterovirus type member.
TLDR
GLRaV-2 is the only closterovirus, so far, that matches the genome organization of the type member of the group, BYV, and thus can be unambiguously classified as a definitive members of the genus Closterov virus.
