Tospoviruses: diagnosis, molecular biology, phylogeny, and vector relationships.
The disease known as "spotted wilt" was first described in Australia in 1 9 1 5 ( 16) and shown to have a viral etiology b y Samuel et al i n 1930 ( 14 1 ). Since that time, viruses similar orExpand
Tospovirus-thrips interactions.
The complex and specific interplay between thrips, tospoviruses, and their shared plant hosts leads to outbreaks of crop disease epidemics of economic and social importance. The precise details ofExpand
An RNA-dependent RNA polymerase activity associated with virions of tomato spotted wilt virus, a plant- and insect-infecting bunyavirus.
An RNA-dependent RNA polymerase activity was found associated with virions of tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV), a plant- and insect-infecting member of the family Bunyaviridae. RadiolabeledExpand
PCR primers that allow intergeneric differentiation of ascomycetes and their application to Verticillium spp.
A pair of conserved PCR primers, designated NMS1 and NMS2, that amplify a region in the mitochondrial small rRNA gene region were designed for fungi belonging to the class Ascomycetes. These primersExpand
Use of monoclonal antibody to the nonstructural protein encoded by the small RNA of tomato spotted wilt tospovirus to identify viruliferous thrips
Tomato spotted wilt tospovirus (TSWV) replicates in and is transmitted by the western flower thrips (Frankliniella occidentalis). Monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) were made to the nonstructural proteinExpand
Disease resistance in tobacco and tomato plants transformed with the tomato spotted wilt virus nucleocapsid gene
The nucleocapsid protein (N) gene was cloned from the tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) Hawaiian L isolate. The 777-nucleotide N gene had 97 and 99% homology with a tomato (CNPH1) and two lettuce (L3Expand
Thrips as vectors of tospoviruses
Publisher Summary This chapter reviews the thrips– tospovirus pathosystem and the cellular and molecular determinants of thrips acquisition of tospoviruses. Viruses in the genus Tospovirus (familyExpand
Variation in Tomato spotted wilt virus titer in Frankliniella occidentalis and its association with frequency of transmission.
Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) is transmitted in a persistent propagative manner by Frankliniella occidentalis, the western flower thrips. While it is well established that vector competenceExpand
