The genome of a tomato-infecting begomovirus from Ranchi, India, was cloned, sequenced and analysed, establishing the monopartite nature of the viral genome and suggesting that DNA-A could transreplicate the homologous DNA-B and DNA-β more efficiently than the heterologous one.
Supervirulent pseudorecombination and asymmetric synergism between genomic components of two distinct species of begomovirus associated with severe tomato leaf curl disease in India.

The results revealed that ToLCGV-[IN:Var:01] DNA-B is capable of associating with different DNA-A components, despite having different iteron sequences, and is the second report on synergism between begomoviruses.
Complexity of begomovirus and betasatellite populations associated with chilli leaf curl disease in India.
Analysis of samples collected in the survey indicates that ChiLCD-infected plants are associated with a complex of begomoviruses (including one previously unreported species) with a diverse group of betasatellites found in crops and weeds, and demonstrates the crucial role of betAsatellites in severe disease development in Capsicum spp.
Resveratrol ameliorates benzo(a)pyrene-induced testicular dysfunction and apoptosis: involvement of p38 MAPK/ATF2/iNOS signaling.
A geminivirus betasatellite damages the structural and functional integrity of chloroplasts leading to symptom formation and inhibition of photosynthesis

Highlight A satellite DNA-encoded protein (βC1) is localized in the chloroplast. The intercellular events associated with βC1-induced photosynthetic inhibition and vein clearing symptom formation are…
Synergistic interaction among begomoviruses leads to the suppression of host defense-related gene expression and breakdown of resistance in chilli
It is suggested that synergistic interaction among begomoviruses created permissive cellular environment in the resistant chilli plants which leads to breakdown of natural resistance, a phenomenon observed for the first time in chilli.
A new begomovirus species and betasatellite causing severe tomato leaf curl disease in Ranchi, India
A large number of infected plants exhibit symptoms consisting of severe leaf rolling, leaf curling and yellowing typical of begomoviruses, which is a serious problem across the Ranchi district of Jharkhand, India.
