Cell‐to‐cell movement and assembly of a plant closterovirus: roles for the capsid proteins and Hsp70 homolog
Diverse animal and plant viruses are able to translocate their virions between neighboring cells via intercellular connections. In this work, we analyze the virion assembly and cell‐to‐cell movementExpand

Production of swainsonine by fungal endophytes of locoweed.
Consumption of locoweeds, legumes endemic in arid western USA, has long been associated with locoism, a disease of ruminant animals. To explore the relationship between fungi associated with locoweedExpand

Kaolin-based foliar reflectant affects physiology and incidence of beet curly top virus but not yield of Chile pepper
Kaolin reflectant treatments have been shown to reduce stress due to the environ- ment, pests, and pathogens in many plants. We tested the effect of kaolin on yield, beet curly top virus (BCTV)Expand

Relationship Between the Endophyte Embellisia spp. and the Toxic Alkaloid Swainsonine in Major Locoweed Species (Astragalus and Oxytropis)
Locoweeds (Astragalus and Oxytropis spp. that contain the toxic alkaloid swainsonine) cause widespread poisoning of livestock on western rangelands. There are 354 species of Astragalus and 22 speciesExpand
