First Report of Maize chlorotic mottle virus and Maize Lethal Necrosis in Kenya.
In September 2011, a high incidence of a new maize (Zea mays L.) disease was reported at lower elevations (1,900 m asl) in the Longisa division of Bomet County, Southern Rift Valley, Kenya. TheExpand

Maize chlorotic mottle machlomovirus and wheat streak mosaic rymovirus concentrations increase in the synergistic disease corn lethal necrosis.
Corn lethal necrosis (CLN) is caused by the synergistic interaction between maize chlorotic mottle machlomovirus (MCMV) and any potyvirus which infects cereals. Interactions between MCMV and wheatExpand

The complete nucleotide sequence of the maize chlorotic mottle virus genome.
The complete nucleotide sequence of the maize chlorotic mottle virus (MCMV) genome has been determined to be 4437 nucleotides. The viral genome has four long open reading frames (ORFs) which couldExpand

The cap-binding translation initiation factor, eIF4E, binds a pseudoknot in a viral cap-independent translation element.
Eukaryotic initiation factor eIF4E performs a key early step in translation by specifically recognizing the m⁷GpppN cap structure at the 5' end of cellular mRNAs. Many viral mRNAs lack a 5' cap andExpand

Detection of members of the Tombusviridae in the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve, Osage County, Oklahoma, USA.
Viruses are most frequently discovered because they cause disease in organisms of importance to humans. To expand knowledge of plant-associated viruses beyond these narrow constraints, non-cultivatedExpand
