Association of Papaya leaf curl virus with the leaf curl disease of grain amaranth (Amaranthus cruentus L.) in India
The analysis of nucleotide sequence data revealed 92–94% sequence identities and close phylogenetic relationships with PLCV strains reported from India and Pakistan; hence, the virus isolate of A. cruentus was identified as P LCV.
Molecular characterization of a new begomovirus associated with leaf yellow mosaic disease of Jatropha curcas in India
The begomovirus isolates associated with leaf yellow mosaic disease of J. curcas were identified as members of a new begoovirus species and provisionally designated as jatropha leafYellow mosaic Katerniaghat virus (JLYMKV).
Molecular identification of a new begomovirus associated with leaf crumple disease of Jatropha curcas L. in India
The begomovirus isolates were identified as the members of a new Begomovirus species and provisionally designated as Jatropha leaf crumple India virus (JLCrIV).
Molecular Characterization of a Begomovirus, α-Satellite, and β-Satellite Associated with Leaf Curl Disease of Parthenium hysterophorus in India.
The results indicate that P. hysterophorus plants infected with ToLCV and associated satellite DNA act as an alternate host (reservoir) and that could lead to increased incidence of tomato leaf curl disease.
First report of Chilli leaf curl India virus infecting Mirabilis jalapa in India
Mirabilis jalapa (family Nyctaginaceae ), also known as the four-o’clock plant, is an ornamental flowering plant grown widely in gardens for the beauty of its variously coloured flowers. Possible
First report of natural occurence of Papaya leaf crumple virus on soyabean in India
Soybean ( Glycine max, family Fabaceae ) is a most important nutrient crop and is grown widely as a pulse rich in protein, and also has numerous other uses.
Association of Cotton leaf curl Multan virus and its associated betasatellite with leaf curl disease of Hibiscus rosa-sinensis in India
Hibiscus ( Hibiscus rosa-sinensis ) is a perennial ornamental plant grown for its attractive flowers and symptoms of severe leaf curling, vein thickening and enation were observed in September 2011.
Silencing of quinolinic acid phosphoribosyl transferase (QPT) gene for enhanced production of scopolamine in hairy root culture of Duboisia leichhardtii
Scopolamine is a pharmaceutically important tropane alkaloid which is used therapeutically in the form of an anesthetic and antispasmodic drug. The present study demonstrates enhanced scopolamine
