Tomato yellow leaf curl virus from Sardinia is a whitefly-transmitted monopartite geminivirus.
The genome of an isolate of tomato yellow leaf curl virus from Sardinia, Italy (TYLCV-S), a geminivirus transmitted by the whitefly Bemisia tabaci, has been cloned and sequenced. The single circularExpand

Use of digoxigenin-labelled probes for detection and host-range studies of tomato yellow leaf curl geminivirus.
We studied the host range of tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV) in some agronomically important tomato species. Transmission tests with the natural vector Bemisia tabaci from tomato to sweetExpand

Resistance to tomato yellow leaf curl geminivirus in Nicotiana benthamiana plants transformed with a truncated viral C1 gene.
The C1 gene of tomato yellow leaf curl geminivirus (TYLCV) encodes a multifunctional protein (Rep) involved in replication. A truncated form of this gene, capable of expressing the N-terminal 210Expand

High Expression of Truncated Viral Rep Protein Confers Resistance to Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus in Transgenic Tomato Plants
A truncated version of the C1 gene of tomato yellow leaf curl geminivirus (TYLCV), encoding the first 210 amino acids of the multifunctional Rep protein, was introduced by AgrobacteriumExpand

Resistance to tospoviruses in Nicotiana benthamiana transformed with the N gene of tomato spotted wilt virus: correlation between transgene expression and protection in primary transformants.
Nicotiana benthamiana was transformed with the nucleoprotein (N) gene of an Italian isolate of tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV). Forty-five T1 primary transformant lines were analyzed for theExpand

Isolation of a pea (Pisum sativum) seed lipoxygenase promoter by inverse polymerase chain reaction and characterization of its expression in transgenic tobacco
Part of the 5′-flanking sequence of a pea (Pisum sativum) lipoxygenase (LOX) gene was cloned, after amplification from genomic DNA by inverse polymerase chain reaction. Translational andExpand

Short-term cyclosporine therapy and cotransplantation of donor splenocytes: effects on graft rejection and survival rates in pigs subjected to renal transplantation.
BACKGROUND Donor-specific allogeneic loading can prolong the survival of solid organ transplants by inducing a state known as acceptance. Several populations of cells are known to be involved in thisExpand
