Detection of four apple viruses by multiplex RT-PCR assays with coamplification of plant mRNA as internal control.
Two multiplex RT-PCR assays with specific coamplification of plant mRNA as an internal control from total nucleic acids are described for the parallel detection of Apple chlorotic leaf spot virus,Expand
Taxonomic reorganization of family Partitiviridae and other recent progress in partitivirus research.
The focus of this review is the taxonomic reorganization of family Partitiviridae (encapsidated, bisegmented dsRNA viruses that infect plants, fungi, or protozoa), as well as redistribution of species among these new genera. Expand
Beet yellows closterovirus: complete genome structure and identification of a leader papain-like thiol protease.
The 348K protein of BYV is longer than the putative replicases of the most closely related viruses by about 1300 amino acids distributed between two unique regions, one at the N-terminus, and the other in the central portion. Expand
Fluorescent labelling reveals spatial separation of potyvirus populations in mixed infected Nicotiana benthamiana plants.
Co-infections of differently labelled potyvirus populations appeared non-synergistic and remained predominantly separate in the infected plants, independent of whether different viruses or identical but differently labelled viruses were co-infecting. Expand
The complete nucleotide sequence of plum pox virus RNA.
The complete nucleotide sequence of the RNA of an aphid non-transmissible plum pox virus (PPV-NAT) isolate has been determined from five overlapping cDNA clones and the potential polyadenylation signal from yeast (UAUGU) was found in the 3' non-coding region of PPV- NAT and several other members of the potyvirus group.

Taxonomic relatedness between Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. carotovorum, Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. odoriferum and Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. brasiliense subsp. nov
The study aimed to confirm the subspecies status and validate the proposed name of P. carotovorum subsp. Expand
The complete nucleotide sequence of a capsicum chlorosis virus isolate from Lycopersicum esculentum in Thailand
The complete nucleotide sequence of a tospovirus isolated from Lycopersicum esculentum in Thailand was determined and it is proposed to refer to all these different viruses as isolates of CaCV. Expand
Identification of the coat protein gene of a sweet potato sunken vein closterovirus isolate from Kenya and evidence for a serological relationship among geographically diverse closterovirus isolates
Results showed that SPSVV-Ke is closely related serologically to similar closterovirus isolates infecting sweet potato in Israel, Nigeria, and the United States but differs from them in reacting weakly with an antiserum to LIYV in IEM and Western blots. Expand
Ceratothripoides claratris, a New Vector of a Capsicum chlorosis virus Isolate Infecting Tomato in Thailand.
Transmission efficiency did not significantly differ between adult males and females, irrespective of the larval stage at which the virus was acquired, and the spread of CaCV on tomato plants in greenhouses showed a close association with thrips infestations. Expand
Sour Cherry Strain of Plum Pox Potyvirus (PPV): Molecular and Serological Evidence for a New Subgroup of PPV Strains
It is proposed that PPV-SoC represents a new subgroup of PPV strains, termed PPV -cherry (PPV-C), and that PPv- soC is its prototype member. Expand
