TAXONOMIC REVISION OF THE FAMILY CLOSTEROVIRIDAE WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO THE GRAPEVINE LEAFROLL-ASSOCIATED MEMBERS OF THE GENUS AMPELOVIRUS AND THE PUTATIVE SPECIES UNASSIGNED TO THE FAMILY
TLDR
A comparative examination of the amino acid sequence divergence of three taxonomically relevant genes supports the notion that they are all genetically divergent variants of a single species, GLRaV-4, and the establishment of a fourth genus within the family Closteroviridae is justified.
Grapevine leafroll-associated virus 3
TLDR
The characterization of sgRNAs produced during the infection cycle of GLRaV-3 has given some insight into the replication strategy and the putative functionality of the ORFs, and the application of next-generation sequencing is proving to be a valuable tool to study the complexity of viral infection as well as plant pathogen interaction.
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.
Grapevine virus A: nucleotide sequence, genome organization, and relationship in the Trichovirus genus
TLDR
The 5′ terminal region of the genomic RNA of grapevine virus A (GVA), a tentative member of the Trichovirus genus, was sequenced and evidence was obtained that the RNA is capped.
Genome-Wide Analysis Provides Evidence on the Genetic Relatedness of the Emergent Xylella fastidiosa Genotype in Italy to Isolates from Central America.
TLDR
A comparative analysis based on single nucleotide polymorphisms and the study of the pan-genome of the 27 currently public available whole genome sequences of X. fastidiosa found the clustering and distinctiveness of the ST53 isolates supports the hypothesis of their common origin, and the limited genetic diversity among these isolates suggests this is an emerging clade within subsp.
Genetic Variability of Grapevine Pinot gris virus and Its Association with Grapevine Leaf Mottling and Deformation.
TLDR
Maximum likelihood and Bayesian phylogenetic analysis of two GPGV genomic regions showed that isolates from symptomatic vines form a lineage distinct from that of symptomless vines.
Vitivirus, a new genus of plant viruses.
TLDR
The genome of grapevine viruses A and B, the two vitiviruses sequenced to date, contains two extra cistrons encoding polypeptides that are not represented among the expression products of ACLSV and PVT genome.
MOLECULAR VARIABILITY OF APPLE CHLOROTIC LEAF SPOT VIRUS IN DIFFERENT HOSTS AND GEOGRAPHICAL REGIONS
SUMMARY A fragment of 500 nt corresponding to 85% of the coat protein (CP) gene of 35 isolates of Apple chlorotic leaf spot virus (ACLSV) from different hosts and geographical areas were sequenced
