A multipartite single-stranded negative-sense RNA virus is the putative agent of fig mosaic disease.
TLDR
The consistent association of D MBs with mosaic symptoms and the results of molecular investigations strongly indicate that DMBs are particles of FMV, the aetiological agent of fig mosaic disease.
Taxonomy of the order Bunyavirales: update 2019
TLDR
The updated taxonomy of the order Bunyavirales now accepted by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) is presented.
Genetic variability and population structure of Grapevine leafroll-associated virus 3 isolates.
TLDR
Estimation of genetic diversity and phylogenetic analysis disclosed the possible existence of vines with mixed infections by diverging sequence variants, showing, in some cases, possible recombination events.
Complete nucleotide sequence of four RNA segments of fig mosaic virus
TLDR
Based on molecular, morphological and epidemiological features, FMV appears to be very closely related to PPSMV and MRSV, which seem to be eligible for classification in the proposed genus Emaravirus, which, in turn, may find a taxonomic allocation in the family Bunyaviridae.
On the presence and distribution of olive viruses in Lebanon
TLDR
A survey for viruses was carried out in 2003 in the main olive-growing areas of Lebanon and a high variability was detected in the HSP70 gene of Lebanese and Italian OLYaV isolates, for at least nine different patterns were obtained when this genomic region was subjected to single-strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP) analysis.
Taxonomy of the order Bunyavirales: second update 2018
TLDR
The updated taxonomy of the order Bunyavirales is presented as now accepted by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV).
Preliminary evaluation of the status of olive‐infecting viruses in Syria
TLDR
Field surveys of 80 commercial groves were made in autumn 2003 in six major Syrian olive-growing regions, and samples were tested by RT-PCR for the presence of the following viruses: Arabis mosaic virus (ArMV), Cherry leaf roll virus (CLRV), Cucumber mosaic virus [CMV], Olive latent ringspot virus (OLRSV), Olive latent virus 1 (OLV-1) and OLV-2.
IDENTIFICATION OF A SECOND MEMBER OF THE FAMILY CLOSTEROVIRIDAE IN MOSAIC-DISEASED FIGS
TLDR
A double-stranded RNA recovered from a fig tree of Algerian origin (F3) showing chlorotic mottling of the leaves and clearing of the second and third veins was recovered, and sequence analysis demonstrated that the sequenced 625 bp fragment was part of a closteroviral HSP70 gene.
