  • X. Yu, Bo Li, +8 authors Xianhong Yi
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
  • 19 April 2010
TLDR
The discovery of an ssDNA mycovirus from the plant pathogenic fungus Sclerotinia sclerotiorum enhances the potential of exploring fungal viruses as valuable tools for molecular manipulation of fungi and for plant disease control and expands the knowledge of global virus ecology and evolution.

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Annual review of phytopathology
  • 4 August 2014
TLDR
In this review, the advantages of using hypovirulence-associated mycoviruses to control crop diseases are discussed, and, as an example, the potential for Sclerotinia sclerotiorum hypovirus-associated DNA virus 1 (SsHADV-1) to control the stem rot of rapeseed is introduced. Expand
Evolutionary genomics of mycovirus-related dsRNA viruses reveals cross-family horizontal gene transfer and evolution of diverse viral lineages
TLDR
This study provides an insight into the phylogeny and evolution of mycovirus-related dsRNA viruses and reveals that the occurrence of HGT between different virus species and the development of multipartite genomes during evolution are important macroevolutionary mechanisms in ds RNA viruses. Expand
Widespread Horizontal Gene Transfer from Circular Single-stranded DNA Viruses to Eukaryotic Genomes
TLDR
It is concluded that the replication initiation protein (Rep)-related sequences of geminiviruses, nanoviruses and circovirus have been frequently transferred to a broad range of eukaryotic species, including plants, fungi, animals and protists, and sheds light on the origin and evolution of these viruses. Expand
Widespread Endogenization of Densoviruses and Parvoviruses in Animal and Human Genomes
TLDR
It is concluded that parvoviruses have frequently invaded the germ lines of diverse animal species, including mammals, fishes, birds, tunicates, arthropods, and flatworms, and some of the endogenizedParvoviral genes were expressed in eukaryotic organisms, suggesting that these viral genes are also functional in the host genomes.

Extracellular transmission of a DNA mycovirus and its use as a natural fungicide
  • X. Yu, B. Li, +6 authors D. Jiāng
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
  • 7 January 2013
TLDR
It is demonstrated that purified particles of a DNA mycovirus, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum hypovirulence-associated DNA virus 1 (SsHADV-1), are infectious when applied extracellularly to its host SclerOTiorum. Expand
A Secretory Protein of Necrotrophic Fungus Sclerotinia sclerotiorum That Suppresses Host Resistance
TLDR
The results suggested that SSITL is an effector possibly and plays significant role in the suppression of jasmonic/ethylene (JA/ET) signal pathway mediated resistance at the early stage of infection. Expand
Molecular characterization of a bipartite double-stranded RNA virus and its satellite-like RNA co-infecting the phytopathogenic fungus Sclerotinia sclerotiorum
TLDR
A novel mycovirus S. sclerotiorum botybirnavirus 1 (SsBRV1) that was originally isolated from the hypovirulent strain SCH941 is reported, which provides new insights into the virus taxonomy, virus evolution and the interactions between Ss BRV1 and the fungal hosts. Expand
Widespread Horizontal Gene Transfer from Double-Stranded RNA Viruses to Eukaryotic Nuclear Genomes
TLDR
The findings imply that horizontal transfer of double-stranded RNA viral genes is widespread among eukaryotes and may give rise to functionally important new genes, thus entailing that RNA viruses may play significant roles in the evolution of eukARYotes. Expand
Fungal negative-stranded RNA virus that is related to bornaviruses and nyaviruses
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a (−)ssRNA virus can occur naturally in fungi and enhance the understanding of the ecology and evolution of (−)SSRNA viruses. Expand
