Use of degenerate primers in the polymerase chain reaction to detect whitefly-transmitted geminiviruses
TLDR
Degenerate PCR primers were designed to anneal to highly conserved nucleotide sequences identified in the genomes of 10 whitefly-transmitted geminiviruses, and tested for their effectiveness in the amplification of viral DNA fragments from the DNA-A and/or DNA-B components of 15 previously uncharacterized geminIViruses.

Exploiting chinks in the plant's armor: evolution and emergence of geminiviruses.
TLDR
The geminiviruses represent a family of DNA viruses that has circumvented these impediments to emerge as one of the most successful viral pathogens, causing severe economic losses to agricultural production worldwide. Expand
Functional analysis of proteins involved in movement of the monopartite begomovirus, Tomato yellow leaf curl virus.
TLDR
Investigation of the functional properties of proteins potentially involved with movement of the monopartite begomovirus, Tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV), established that TYLCV infection was limited to phloem cells of shoot apical, leaf, stem, and floral tissues, and the V1 and/or C4 may be analogs of the bipartite beggingomov virus BC1 that have evolved to mediate TY LCV movement withinPhloem tissue.

Two proteins of a plant DNA virus coordinate nuclear and plasmodesmal transport
TLDR
Results provide direct experimental evidence for intercellular macro-molecular transport in plants, and suggest that the BR1 and BL1 proteins coordinate the movement of viral DNA across both nuclear and plasmodesmal boundaries. Expand
Capsid protein and helper component-proteinase function as potyvirus cell-to-cell movement proteins.
TLDR
Direct evidence was obtained that both the potyviral capsid protein (CP) and helper component- proteinase (HC-Pro) function in this capacity, in that both proteins trafficked from cell to cell, induced an increase in plasmodesmal size exclusion limit, and facilitated cell-to-cell movement of viral RNA.

Towards an integrated linkage map of common bean 2. Development of an RFLP-based linkage map
TLDR
The I gene for bean common mosaic virus resistance is the first disease resistance gene to be located on the common bean genetic linkage map. Expand
Cultural studies and genetics of sexuality of Ganoderma lucidum and G. tsugae in relation to the taxonomy of the G. lucidum complex.
TLDR
The authenticity of the two widely distributed wood-rotting species was demonstrated by comparative studies, and mating systems were determined for both species as heterothallic and tetrapolar. Expand
Wood-Rotting Fungi of North America
TLDR
The biology of wood-rotting fungi is reviewed and threats to the continuing existence of these fungi as a result of increased utilization of wood as fuel are discussed. Expand
