The complete nucleotide sequences of the double-stranded RNA segments S1, S4, S6, S7 and S12 of the genome of a Rice gall dwarf virus (RGDV) isolate from Thailand were determined. The segments consisted of 4505, 2622, 1648, 1652 and 853 nucleotides, encoding putative proteins of 1458, 725, 489, 511 and 206 amino acids with molecular masses of approximately(More)
Various cytopathological structures, known as inclusion bodies, are formed upon infection of cultured leafhopper cells by Rice dwarf virus, a member of the family Reoviridae. These structures include tubules of approximately 85 nm in diameter which are composed of the nonstructural viral protein Pns10 and contain viral particles. Such tubular structures(More)
The structure of melon necrotic spot virus (MNSV) was determined at 2.8 A resolution. Although MNSV is classified into the genus Carmovirus of the family Tombusviridae, the three-dimensional structure of MNSV showed a higher degree of similarity to tomato bushy stunt virus (TBSV), which belongs to the genus Tombusvirus, than to carnation mottle virus(More)
Mirafiori lettuce big-vein virus (MiLBVV) is a member of the genus Ophiovirus, which is a segmented negative-stranded RNA virus. In microprojectile bombardment experiments to identify a movement protein (MP) gene of ophioviruses that can trans-complement intercellular movement of an MP-deficient heterologous virus, a plasmid containing an infectious clone(More)
Electron microscopy revealed that the entry of Rice dwarf virus (RDV) into insect vector cells involved endocytosis via coated pits. The treatment of cells with drugs that block receptor-mediated or clathrin-mediated endocytosis significantly reduced RDV infectivity. However, the drug that blocks caveola-mediated endocytosis had a negligible effect on such(More)
