A discovery 70 years in the making: characterization of the Rose rosette virus.
TLDR
The putative causal agent of the disease, a negative-sense RNA virus and new member of the genus Emaravirus, is identified and characterized and diversity studies demonstrated that the virus has low diversity between isolates as they share nucleotide identities ranging from 97 to 99%.
Southern tomato virus: The link between the families Totiviridae and Partitiviridae.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses revealed that this virus, for which the name Southern tomato virus (STV) is proposed, belongs to a partitivirus-like lineage and represents a species of a new taxon of plant viruses.
Impacts of Molecular Diagnostic Technologies on Plant Disease Management.
TLDR
The application of ELISA and monoclonal antibody technologies in plant pathology has greatly improved the ability to detect plant pathogens and is increasing the understanding of, their ecology and epidemiology.
Viruses and Virus Diseases of Rubus.
TLDR
The goals of this article are to update the knowledge on previously characterized viruses of Rubus, highlight recently described viruses, review the virus-induced symptoms, describe the advances made in their detection, and discuss the knowledge about several virus complexes that cause serious diseases in Rubus.
Genome diversity and intra- and interspecies recombination events in Grapevine fanleaf virus.
TLDR
Results confirm interspecies recombination in RNA2 of grapevine-infecting nepoviruses as an important strategy for GFLV evolution and suggest primary spread through planting virus- infected cuttings rather than infield transmission.
A member of a new genus in the Potyviridae infects Rubus.
TLDR
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.
Identification, Characterization, and Detection of Black raspberry necrosis virus.
TLDR
It is concluded that Black raspberry decline-associated virus (BRDaV) is a strain of BRNV, a previously described yet unsequenced virus that belongs to the genus Sadwavirus.
Genetic variability of natural populations of Grapevine leafroll-associated virus 2 in Pacific Northwest vineyards.
TLDR
Genetic variability of field populations of Grapevine leafroll-associated virus 2 (GLRaV-2) in Pacific Northwest (PNW) vineyards was characterized by sequencing the entire coat protein and a portion of the heat-shock protein-70 homolog (HSP70h) genes, which indicated different selection pressures may be acting on the two genomic regions encoding proteins with distinct functions.
Blueberry latent virus: an amalgam of the Partitiviridae and Totiviridae.
TLDR
Transmission studies from three separate crosses showed that the virus is transmitted very efficiently by seed, suggesting that BBLV belongs to a new family of plant viruses with unique genome organization for a plant virus but signature properties of cryptic viruses including symptomless infection and very efficient vertical transmission.
A virus between families: nucleotide sequence and evolution of Strawberry latent ringspot virus.
TLDR
Strawberry latent ringspot virus (SLRSV) shares characteristics with members of the Cheravirus, Fabav virus, Comovirus and Sadwavirus genera indicative of the uniqueness of SLRSV.
