Comparison of Resistance Level to Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus Among Commercial Cultivars and Breeding Lines.
The ability of the various resistant tomato cultivars and lines to inhibit the effects of the virus, even following inoculation at a very early stage of plant development, is clearly demonstrated. Expand
A New Israeli Tobamovirus Isolate Infects Tomato Plants Harboring Tm-22 Resistance Genes
In samples collected from commercial cultivars across Israel, a single virus was found that caused the disease and the complete genome sequence of the new Israeli tobamovirus showed high sequence identity to the Jordanian isolate of tomato brown rugose fruit virus. Expand
Spread of Tomato apical stunt viroid (TASVd) in Greenhouse Tomato Crops Is Associated with Seed Transmission and Bumble Bee Activity.
It is suggested that the primary spread of the viroid in greenhouse tomato plants is by seed transmission, and secondary distribution occurs by the pollination activity of bumble bees. Expand
Biological and molecular characterization of a new cucurbit-infecting tobamovirus.
Comparisons of sequences and phylogenetic analysis suggested that the cucurbit-infecting Tobamoviruses be separated into two subgroups: subgroup I comprising the strains and isolates referred to in the literature as Cucumber green mottle mosaic virus (CGMMV), and the Yodo strain of CGMMV, which is closely related to KGMMV and may be considered a strain of it.

Ipomoea crinkle leaf curl caused by a whitefly-transmitted gemini-like virus
Summary A whitefly-transmitted infectious agent, associated with geminate particles, induced distinct symptoms on several Ipomoea species, but not on I. batatas cv. Georgia Jet. The virus wasExpand
A New Pathotype of Pepper mild mottle virus (PMMoV) Overcomes the L4 Resistance Genotype of Pepper Cultivars.
The biological, serological, and molecular characteristics of a newly isolated L4 resistance-breaking isolate of Pepper mild mottle virus were studied and the new pathotype was designated P1,2,3,4 of PMMoV-Is. Expand
Characterization of Pepper yellow leaf curl virus, a tentative new Polerovirus species causing a yellowing disease of pepper
The identification of a viral pathogen causing a new devastating disease in pepper crops, tentatively named Pepper yellow leaf curl virus (PYLCV), which has 92% identity at the amino acid level with Tobacco vein distortion virus (TVDV), another member of the Polerovirus genus. Expand
Truncated Rep gene originated from Tomato yellow leaf curl virus-Israel [Mild] confers strain-specific resistance in transgenic tomato
Transgenic tomato plants carrying a truncated replication associated protein (T-Rep) gene of the mild strain of Tomato yellow leaf curl virus-Israel (TYLCV-Is [Mild]) were prepared, but these plants were susceptible to the severe strain of TYLCv-Is. Expand
Indexing system forTomato mosaic virus (ToMV) in commercial tomato seed lots
An indexing system for detecting tomato mosaic virus (ToMV) in commercial tomato seed lots is described and Nicotiana tabacum cv. Expand
