A multipartite single-stranded negative-sense RNA virus is the putative agent of fig mosaic disease.
TLDR
The consistent association of D MBs with mosaic symptoms and the results of molecular investigations strongly indicate that DMBs are particles of FMV, the aetiological agent of fig mosaic disease.
DETECTION OF XYLELLA FASTIDIOSA IN OLIVE TREES BY MOLECULAR AND SEROLOGICAL METHODS
TLDR
The identification of X. fastidiosa in OQDS-affected trees represents the first confirmed detection of this bacterium in the European Union (EU), but its exact role in the aetiology of this disease is yet to be determined.
Taxonomy of the order Bunyavirales: update 2019
TLDR
The updated taxonomy of the order Bunyavirales now accepted by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) is presented.
Complete nucleotide sequence of four RNA segments of fig mosaic virus
TLDR
Based on molecular, morphological and epidemiological features, FMV appears to be very closely related to PPSMV and MRSV, which seem to be eligible for classification in the proposed genus Emaravirus, which, in turn, may find a taxonomic allocation in the family Bunyaviridae.
Identification of three potential insect vectors of Xylella fastidiosa in southern Italy.
TLDR
The detection of X. fastidiosa in P. spumarius and, for the first time, in N. lineolatus, indicates potential vectoring roles ofThese insects for the spread of the bacterium in Puglia, and further investigations and specific infectivity trials are required to definitively determine the roles of these insects as effective vectors of this pathogen.
Taxonomy of the order Bunyavirales: second update 2018
TLDR
The updated taxonomy of the order Bunyavirales is presented as now accepted by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV).
Unusual genomic features of a badnavirus infecting mulberry.
TLDR
Mulberry badnavirus 1 (MBV1) has been characterized as the aetiological agent of a disease observed on a mulberry tree in Lebanon and the characterization of the MBV1-derived small RNAs showed a reduced amount of the 24-mer class size.
IDENTIFICATION OF A SECOND MEMBER OF THE FAMILY CLOSTEROVIRIDAE IN MOSAIC-DISEASED FIGS
TLDR
A double-stranded RNA recovered from a fig tree of Algerian origin (F3) showing chlorotic mottling of the leaves and clearing of the second and third veins was recovered, and sequence analysis demonstrated that the sequenced 625 bp fragment was part of a closteroviral HSP70 gene.
