Tobamovirus evolution: gene overlaps, recombination, and taxonomic implications.
Tobamoviruses, mostly isolated from solanaceous plants, may represent ancient virus lineages that have codiverged with their hosts. Recently completed nucleotide sequences of six nonsolanaceousExpand

Despite a potentially key role in cell-to-cell communication, plant intercellular connections-the plasmodesmata-have long been a biological "black box." Little is known about their proteinExpand

Movement and subcellular localization of a tobamovirus in Arabidopsis.
Tobamoviruses represent a well-characterized system used to examine viral infection, whereas Arabidopsis is a choice plant for most genetic experiments. It would be useful to combine both approachesExpand

Inhibition of plant viral systemic infection by non-toxic concentrations of cadmium.
Heavy metal, such as cadmium, have a significant impact on plant physiology. However, their potential effect on plant-pathogen interaction, an important biological process, has not been examined.Expand

Completion of a cDNA sequence from a tobamovirus pathogenic to crucifers.
Turnip vein-clearing virus (TVCV) is a tobamovirus related to ribgrass mosaic virus. We report the nucleotide (nt) sequences of the 5'-untranslated region (UTR) and the 3'-half of the TVCV genomeExpand

Electron microscopic and molecular characterization of turnip vein-clearing virus
SummaryWe recently isolated turnip vein-clearing virus (TVCV), a tobamovirus which causes vein clearing inBrassica rapa (turnip) and a mosaic inNicotiana tabacum (tobacco). We present an electronExpand

Limitations to tobacco mosaic virus infection of turnip
SummaryTurnip vein-clearing virus (TVCV) and tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) represent subgroups of tobamoviruses infecting cruciferous and solanaceous plants, respectively. To identify adaptations thatExpand

A PCR protocol for rapid detection of Cercospora beticola in sugarbeet tissues
Cercospora leaf spot, caused by Cercospora beticola. Sacco is the most important foliar disease of sugarbeet (Beta vulgaris L.), yet the progression of infection from soil to diseased leaves remainsExpand

Isolate-specific synergy in disease symptoms between cauliflower mosaic and turnip vein-clearing viruses
Summary.Simultaneous infection of a plant by two viruses can cause more severe disease than is caused by infection with either virus alone. Such synergy may be due to effects on the replication ofExpand
