An Umbraviral Protein, Involved in Long-Distance RNA Movement, Binds Viral RNA and Forms Unique, Protective Ribonucleoprotein Complexes
TLDR
The RNP particles detected here represent a novel structure which may be used by umbraviruses as an alternative to classical virions and are suggested that the cytoplasmic RNP complexes formed by the ORF3 protein serve to protect viral RNA and may be the form in which it moves through the phloem.
Molecular characterization of an Indian isolate of Banana bunchy top virus based on six genomic DNA components
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis revealed a close relationship of the Lucknow isolate with BBTV isolates of South Pacific group rather than those of the Asian group.
Review article: Phytoplasma diseases affecting various plant species in India
TLDR
Overall progress on phytoplasma disease on plant species in India is discussed in terms of taxonomy, symptomatology, economic significance, transmission and characterization.
Molecular Characterization of a Strain of Squash leaf curl China Virus from North India
TLDR
A Begomovirus causing yellow vein mosaic disease of pumpkin was characterized at molecular level by cloning and sequence analysis of its complete DNA-A genome and identified as strain of Squash leaf curl China virus.
Association of Papaya leaf curl virus with the leaf curl disease of grain amaranth (Amaranthus cruentus L.) in India
TLDR
The analysis of nucleotide sequence data revealed 92–94% sequence identities and close phylogenetic relationships with PLCV strains reported from India and Pakistan; hence, the virus isolate of A. cruentus was identified as P LCV.
Satellite RNA is essential for encapsidation of groundnut rosette umbravirus RNA by groundnut rosette assistor luteovirus coat protein.
TLDR
Using different mutants of GRV sat-RNA, it was found that some property of full-length satellite RNA molecules, such as size or specific conformation rather than potential open reading frames, was required for the production of virus particles.
Paenibacillus lentimorbus Inoculation Enhances Tobacco Growth and Extenuates the Virulence of Cucumber mosaic virus
TLDR
Soil inoculation of Paenibacillus lentimorbus B-30488 enhanced the plant vigor while significantly decreased the virulence and virus RNA accumulation by ~12 fold (91%) in systemic leaves of CMV infected tobacco plants as compared to the control ones.
Complete nucleotide sequence of Croton yellow vein mosaic virus and DNA-β associated with yellow vein mosaic disease of Jatropha gossypifolia in India
TLDR
Based on the highest sequence identities and closest phylogenetic relationships of the DNA-A genome and DNA-β molecule with respective sequences of various isolates of Croton yellow vein mosaic virus, the begomovirus associated withyellow vein mosaic disease of J. gossypifolia was identified as an isolate ofCroton yellow veins mosaic virus.
