Inheritance of a gene for resistance to tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) from Lycopersicon peruvianum Mill
The inheritance of TSWV resistance was found to be a single dominant gene, which indicates a 98.7% penetrance of the resistance gene in plants infected four months after the inoculations. Expand
Cowpea mosaic virus-based chimaeras. Effects of inserted peptides on the phenotype, host range, and transmissibility of the modified viruses.
Host range and transmission studies revealed that the expression of a foreign peptide did not alter the virus host range, increase the rate of transmission by beetles or through seed, or change the insect vector specificity. Expand
A member of a new genus in the Potyviridae infects Rubus.
A potyvirus, designated as Blackberry virus Y (BVY), has been identified in plants with blackberry yellow vein disease symptoms also infected with BYVaV, the largest potyVirus sequenced to date and the first to encode an AlkB domain. Expand
Genetic analysis of resistance to soybean mosaic virus in j05 soybean.
Inheritance and allelism studies indicate that J05 possesses 2 independent dominant genes for SMV resistance, one at the Rsv1 locus conferring resistance to G1 and necrosis to G7 and the other at theRsv3 locus conditioning resistance toG7 but susceptibility toG1. Expand
A virus between families: nucleotide sequence and evolution of Strawberry latent ringspot virus.
Strawberry latent ringspot virus (SLRSV) shares characteristics with members of the Cheravirus, Fabav virus, Comovirus and Sadwavirus genera indicative of the uniqueness of SLRSV. Expand

  • 1 November 2005
The objective of this research was to group diverse soybean genotypes on the basis of their differential reactions to SMV strains to help in selecting SMV-resistant parents for crossing in a breeding program. Expand
Noncirculative transmission of plant viruses by leaf-feeding beetles
None of the four plant viruses were detected in the hemolymph of the Mexican bean beetle, an efficient plant virus vector in the family Coccinellidae, regardless of the acquisition source, type of virus, or method of virus detection. Expand
Evidence that Virus Translocation and Virus Infection of Non-wounded Cells Are Associated with Transmissibility by Leaf-feeding Beetles
The results suggest that both translocation of virus particles in the xylem of plants and establishment of infection in non-wounded tissue are key properties of viruses that are transmitted by beetles. Expand
Viral Interactions Lead to Decline of Blackberry Plants.
It has been hypothesized that BYVaV is the synergistic determinant of BYVD that causes symptoms in different cultivars at various locations during co-infection with other viruses. Expand
