Badnaviruses: The Current Global Scenario
TLDR
The present review aims to highlight emerging disease problems, virus characteristics, transmission, and diagnosis of badnaviruses. Expand
Variation and Intraspecific Relationships in Indian Wild Musa balbisiana (BB) Population as Evidenced by Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA
TLDR
Sixteen collections of the wild Musa species, Musa balbisiana Colla collected from different regions of India were studied for their intraspecific relationships using random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers to indicate the existence of considerable variation at the DNA level within the species. Expand
Biology, etiology, and control of virus diseases of banana and plantain.
TLDR
The state of knowledge on BBTV, BBrMV, and BSVs, and other minor viruses, disease spread, and control are summarized in this review. Expand
Genetic diversity and recombination analysis in the coat protein gene of Banana bract mosaic virus
TLDR
This is the first report on genetic diversity, and evolution of BBrMV isolates based on recombination and phylogenetic analysis in India, and most of the codons in the CP gene were under negative or neutral selection. Expand
Molecular Characterization of Geographically Different Banana bunchy top virus Isolates in India
TLDR
The study revealed that the Indian BBTV isolates with distinct geographical origins belongs to the South Pacific group, except Shervroy and Kodaikanal hill isolates which neither belong to theSouth Pacific nor the Asian group. Expand
RNA Dependent RNA Polymerases: Insights from Structure, Function and Evolution
TLDR
An overview of the structural aspects of RdRps and their complexes from the Group III, IV and V viruses and their structure-based phylogeny is provided. Expand
Studies on the origin and diversification of Indian wild banana (Musa balbisiana) using arbitrarily amplified DNA markers
TLDR
It is proposed that M. balbisiana originated from one location, North Eastern India, but now has three distinguishable areas of diversity including the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Expand
Biochemical Characterization of Compatible Plant Virus Interaction: A Case Study with Bunchy Top Virus-Banana Host-Pathosystem
TLDR
The results suggest that BBTV infection induces significant changes in enzyme levels leading to irreversible symptom development, and further studies would lead to identification of biochemical markers for studying plant-virus compatible and incompatible interactions. Expand
Molecular Detection of 16SrXI Group Phytoplasma Associated with Root (Wilt) Disease of Coconut (Cocos nucifera) in India.
TLDR
A BLAST search showed that the RWD phytoplasma 16S rRNA gene sequence has >96% nt identity with 16SRXI and 16SrXIV groupphytoplasmas and 99% identity with sugarcane white leaf phy toplasma, on the basis of the identity of the16Sr RNA gene 3Fwd/5Rev region. Expand
Development of Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of highly valued hill banana cultivar Virupakshi (AAB) for resistance to BBTV disease
TLDR
The Agrobacterium-mediated transformation on a highly valued hill banana cultivar Virupakshi (AAB) for resistance to BBTV disease is reported, and the RNAi mediating resistances were shown to be effective management of BBTV in hill banana. Expand
