Distinct levels of specificity in thrips transmission of tospoviruses.
Various thrips species were tested for their ability to transmit different tospovirus species using a petunia leaf disk assay system. Transmission efficiencies were determined for four species ofExpand
The S RNA segment of tomato spotted wilt virus has an ambisense character.
The complete nucleotide sequence of the S RNA of tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) was determined. The RNA is 2916 nucleotides long and has an ambisense coding strategy. The sequence contains two openExpand
Sequence and organization of the Spodoptera exigua multicapsid nucleopolyhedrovirus genome.
The nucleotide sequence of the DNA genome of Spodoptera exigua multicapsid nucleopolyhedrovirus (SeMNPV), a group II NPV, was determined and analysed. The genome contains 135611 bp and has a G+CExpand
Noncoding Flavivirus RNA Displays RNA Interference Suppressor Activity in Insect and Mammalian Cells
ABSTRACT West Nile virus (WNV) and dengue virus (DENV) are highly pathogenic, mosquito-borne flaviviruses (family Flaviviridae) that cause severe disease and death in humans. WNV and DENV activelyExpand
The nucleotide sequence of the M RNA segment of tomato spotted wilt virus, a bunyavirus with two ambisense RNA segments.
The complete sequence of the tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) M RNA segment has been determined. The RNA is 4821 nucleotides long and has an ambisense coding strategy similar to that of the S RNAExpand
Resistance mechanisms to plant viruses: an overview.
To obtain virus-resistant host plants, a range of operational strategies can be followed nowadays. While for decades plant breeders have been able to introduce natural resistance genes in susceptibleExpand
Genetic variation among isolates of White spot syndrome virus
Summary.White spot syndrome virus (WSSV), member of a new virus family called Nimaviridae, is a major scourge in worldwide shrimp cultivation. Geographical isolates of WSSV identified so far are veryExpand
Identification of genes involved in DNA replication of the Autographa californica baculovirus.
By use of a transient replication assay, nine genes involved in DNA replication were identified in the genome of the Autographa californica baculovirus. Six genes encoding helicase, DNA polymerase,Expand
Negative-Strand Tospoviruses and Tenuiviruses Carry a Gene for a Suppressor of Gene Silencing at Analogous Genomic Positions
ABSTRACT Posttranscriptional silencing of a green fluorescent protein (GFP) transgene in Nicotiana benthamiana plants was suppressed when these plants were infected with Tomato spotted wilt virusExpand
Classification of tospoviruses based on phylogeny of nucleoprotein gene sequences.
The nucleotide sequences of the nucleoprotein (N) genes of seven tospovirus isolates representing three serogroups were determined and used to establish phylogenetic parameters to delineate speciesExpand
