Complete nucleotide sequences of the RNAs 2 of German isolates of grapevine fanleaf and Arabis mosaic nepoviruses.
The RNAs 2 of an Arabis mosaic virus (ArMV) and a grapevine fanleaf virus (GFLV) isolate, originating from South West of Germany near Neustadt an der Weinstrasse (NW), were sequenced. They are 3820Expand

Size and sequence variability of the Arabis mosaic virus protein 2A
Summary. The RNA 2 of the nepovirus Arabis mosaic virus (ArMV) encodes a polyprotein from which protein 2A is released by proteolytic cleavage at the N-terminus. The 2A gene of 19 ArMV isolates fromExpand

An immunodominant membrane protein (Imp) of 'Candidatus Phytoplasma mali' binds to plant actin.
The phytopathogenic, cell-wall-less phytoplasmas exhibit a dual life cycle: they multiply in the phloem of their host plant and in the body of their insect vector. Their membrane proteins are inExpand
