Standardized RT-PCR Conditions for Detection and Identification of Eleven Viruses of Potato and Potato spindle tuber viroid
TLDR
Standardized RT-PCR procedures were developed and validated for detection of Alfalfa mosaic virus, Impatiens necrotic spot virus, Tobacco rattle virus, and the O, N, NTN, and N:O strains of PVY could be differentiated using previously published multiplex primers.
RNA-Seq analysis of resistant and susceptible potato varieties during the early stages of potato virus Y infection
TLDR
Investigation of transcriptional changes in leaves of potato upon inoculation with PVY identifies potential key processes and genes that determine the fate of the reaction, compatible or incompatible, between PVY and its host.
Hairy Nightshade is an Alternative Host of Spongospora subterranea, the Potato Powdery Scab Pathogen
TLDR
The root galls on HNS were caused by S. subterranea that is able to complete its life cycle on H NS and produce new generations of sporosori that are infectious on potato.
Transmission of Potato Purple Top Phytoplasma to Potato Tubers and Daughter Plants
TLDR
Transmission of the phytoplasma from infected tubers to daughter plants ranged from 0% to 50% depending upon cultivar and year, and in two of the 3 years, Russet Burbank showed the lowest rate of tuber transmission among the eight cultivars.
First Report of Impatiens necrotic spot virus Infecting Greenhouse-Grown Potatoes in Washington State.
TLDR
Findings indicate INSV can be a major problem in greenhouse potatoes, whether for research purposes or production of virus-free minitubers destined for field plantings.
Characterization of Beet curly top virus Strains Circulating in Beet Leafhoppers (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae) in Northeastern Oregon.
TLDR
Investigation of the incidence of BCTV in individual leafhoppers collected at several sites in northeastern Oregon during the growing season in 2007, 2008, and 2009 indicates that BCTV is common and widespread in C. tenellus in eastern Oregon and that there is substantial genetic diversity among the virus strains present in this important field and vegetable crop-growing region.
Resistance to Meloidogyne chitwoodi Identified in Wild Potato Species
TLDR
Geographical mapping showed that the resistance sources identified in this and previous studies primarily originated in the states of Jalisco and Michoacán in west-central Mexico and will be introgressed into elite potato populations to facilitate the development of potato cultivars with durable resistance to M. chitwoodi.
TerraRossa: A Mid-Season Specialty Potato with Red Flesh and Skin and Resistance to Common Scab and Golden Cyst Nematode
TLDR
Due to its high yields, high chipping quality, good culinary properties, high antioxidant content and disease resistance, TerraRossa is a good candidate for opening new specialty type markets, adding diversity to the marketplace.
Assessing Potato Cultivar Sensitivity to Tuber Necrosis Caused by Tobacco rattle virus.
TLDR
The mixed-effects model results of pooled data demonstrated that the interaction of cultivar and location had a significant effect on TRV-induced necrosis, and these results can assist the potato industry in making cultivar choices to reduce the economic impact of TRv-induced tuber necrosis.
A Rapid Method for Preparation of Nucleic Acid Extracts from Potato Psyllids1 for Detection of ‘Candidatus Liberibacter Solancearum’ and Molecular Analysis
Abstract. A rapid method was developed and validated for PCR analysis of potato psyllids for Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum (Lso), the causal agent of zebra chip disease of potatoes, Solanum
