Cucurbit chlorotic yellows virus (CCYV) causes chlorotic yellows on cucumber (Cucumis sativus) and melon (Cucumis melo) and is transmitted by Bemisia tabaci biotype B and Q whiteflies. To characterize the host range of CCYV, 21 cucurbitaceous and 12 other plant species were inoculated using whitefly vectors. All tested Cucumis spp. except Cucumis anguria(More)
Three isolates of Chrysanthemum stem necrosis virus (CSNV) were obtained from chrysanthemum plants in distinct regions of Japan in 2006 and 2007. All the original host plants showed severe necrotic symptoms on the leaves and stems. Amino acid sequence data of the nucleocapsid protein genes of the three isolates (CbCh07A, TcCh07A, and GnCh07S) showed high(More)
Cucurbit chlorotic yellows virus (CCYV) (family Closteroviridae, genus Crinivirus) is an emerging virus which causes severe diseases on melon (Cucumis melo) plants. CCYV-infected melon plants display yellowing, mottling, chlorosis, or chlorotic spots on leaves. To develop a new control strategy, the potential for 1,2,3-benzothiadiazole-7-thiocarboxylic(More)
Fifty-one melon (Cucumis melo) accessions that originated from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh were evaluated for resistance to Cucurbit chlorotic yellows virus (CCYV), a newly emerged species in the genus Crinivirus. CCYV was inoculated using sweet potato whitefly (Bemisia tabaci) biotype Q. Accessions, JP 138332, JP 216154, JP 216155, JP 216751 and JP(More)
Cucurbit chlorotic yellows virus (CCYV) of the genus Crinivirus within the family Closteroviridae is an emerging infectious agent of cucurbits leading to severe disease and significant economic losses. Effective detection and identification methods for this virus are urgently required. In this study, a reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal(More)
The acquisition efficiency of Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) by Frankliniella occidentalis was examined using TSWV-infected Datura stramonium with various virus titres. TSWV quantities in leaves were measured using double antibody sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (DAS-ELISA) and quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction(More)
The vector competence of Frankliniella occidentalis for Chrysanthemum stem necrosis virus (CSNV) was evaluated. Three vector strains with distinct competences for Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) transmission were investigated, including an artificially selected strain (TsH) that has a particularly high competence (>90 %). Newly hatched larvae of F.(More)
The complete nucleotide sequence of a Chrysanthemum virus B isolate from Japan (CVB-S) has been determined. The genomic RNA of CVB-S is 8,990 nucleotides long, excluding the poly(A) tail and, like that of other carlaviruses, contains six open reading frames (ORFs). Multiple alignment and phylogenetic analyses indicated that the phylogenetic relationship(More)
