The nematode resistance gene Mi of tomato confers resistance against the potato aphid.
Resistance against the aphid Macrosiphum euphorbiae previously was observed in tomato and attributed to a novel gene, designated Meu-1, tightly linked to the nematode resistance gene, Mi. RecentExpand

Tospoviruses: diagnosis, molecular biology, phylogeny, and vector relationships.
The disease known as "spotted wilt" was first described in Australia in 1 9 1 5 ( 16) and shown to have a viral etiology b y Samuel et al i n 1930 ( 14 1 ). Since that time, viruses similar orExpand

Tospovirus-thrips interactions.
The complex and specific interplay between thrips, tospoviruses, and their shared plant hosts leads to outbreaks of crop disease epidemics of economic and social importance. The precise details ofExpand

Cross-talk between jasmonate and salicylate plant defense pathways: effects on several plant parasites
Plants are often attacked by many herbivorous insects and pathogens at the same time. Two important suites of responses to attack are mediated by plant hormones, jasmonate and salicylate, whichExpand

A midgut barrier to tomato spotted wilt virus acquisition by adult western flower thrips
Ultrastructural and serological analyses provide evidence that a midgut barrier underlies the inability of adult western flower thrips (WFT), Frank-liniella occidentalis, to acquire tomato spottedExpand

Tospovirus replication in insect vector cells : Immunocytochemical evidence that the nonstructural protein encoded by the S RNA of tomato spotted wilt tospovirus is present in thrips vector cells
Tomato spotted wilt tospovirus (TSWV) is an insect-transmitted virus that is the type member of the Tospovirus genus, which is the only genus in the family Bunyaviridae containing viruses that infectExpand

Infection with a plant virus modifies vector feeding behavior
Vector infection by some animal-infecting parasites results in altered feeding that enhances transmission. Modification of vector behavior is of broad adaptive significance, as parasite fitnessExpand

Thrips-Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus Interactions: Morphological, Behavioral and Cellular Components Influencing Thrips Transmission
Epidemics of insect-transmitted plant viruses in agricultural ecosystems require the interaction of 3 basic components: the host plant of the virus, the insect vector and the plant pathogenic virus.Expand

Use of monoclonal antibody to the nonstructural protein encoded by the small RNA of tomato spotted wilt tospovirus to identify viruliferous thrips
Tomato spotted wilt tospovirus (TSWV) replicates in and is transmitted by the western flower thrips (Frankliniella occidentalis). Monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) were made to the nonstructural proteinExpand
