Recently, Pepino mosaic virus (PepMV) infections causing severe yellowing symptoms in tomato plants have been reported in glasshouse tomato crops. When studying this phenomenon in commercial glasshouses, two different types of yellowing symptoms, occurring in adjacent plants, were distinguished: interveinal leaf yellowing and yellow mosaics. After several(More)
The main task of annually grown fibrous roots is to supply aboveground organs with water and nutrients. The key for this function, the development and mortality of primary tissues during a root lifespan is still poorly understood, especially in plants grown under field conditions. The goal of this study was to investigate the differentiation and maturation(More)
Pepino mosaic virus (PepMV) is an emerging plant pathogen that infects tomatoes worldwide. Understanding the factors that influence its evolutionary success is essential for developing new control strategies that may be more robust against the evolution of new viral strains. One of these evolutionary factors is the distribution of mutational fitness effect(More)
DNA aptamers (PSA-H and MT32) were applied for the detection of Apple stem pitting virus (ASPV) isolates using an Enzyme-Linked Oligonucleotide Assay (ELONA) and Western blot analysis. The specificity and effectiveness of aptamers were verified in comparison to a conventional Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA). A genetically diverse group of ASPV(More)
A collection of 147 Potato virus Y (PVY) isolates from tomato, originating from several commercial fields and greenhouses in different regions of Poland, was tested for the presence of PVY by reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction. However, in some cases, the results obtained were ambiguous. Therefore, a sensitive reverse-transcription(More)
This paper presents studies on an ultrastructural analysis of plant tissue infected with different pathotypes of Pepino mosaic virus (PepMV) and the immunolocalization of viral coat proteins. Because the PepMV virus replicates with a high mutation rate and exhibits significant genetic diversity, therefore, isolates of PepMV display a wide range of symptoms(More)
Viral cross-protection in plants is a phenomenon, where a mild virus isolate can protect plants against damage caused by a severe challenge isolate of the same virus. It has been used on a large scale in cases where no resistant plants are available. We examined differences in cross-protection between pathotypes of Pepino mosaic virus representing Chilean 2(More)
