Sweet potato virus G belongs to the largest plant virus genus Potyvirus. This virus was detected for the first time in Argentina and then sequenced using the method of next-generation pyrosequencing. The complete genome was found to be 10,798 nucleotides excluding the poly-A tail with a predicted genome organization typical for a member of the genus(More)
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) disproportionately affects women. Recent work demonstrates that men with Klinefelter's syndrome (47,XXY men) have a similar risk of developing SLE as do women. We present an unusual African-American family with two SLE-affected individuals in which one of the patients with SLE also has Turner's syndrome (46,X,del(X)(q13)).(More)
We report the complete nucleotide sequence of a begomovirus infecting sweet potato in the Northeastern region of Argentina. Sequence comparisons indicated that the isolate under study has the highest nucleotide sequence identity (93.6 %) with Sweet potato leaf curl virus Puerto Rico. According to the current taxonomic criteria for begomovirus classification(More)
