A Montana barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV) isolate, BYDV-RMV-MT, is serologically identical to the New York RMV type isolate (RMV-NY) but differs in aphid transmission phenotype. A purification procedure for BYDV-RMV-MT was developed and cDNAs encompassing the entire coat protein gene and a portion of the putative polymerase gene of both RMV-MT and RMV-NY(More)
The malting barley-producing regions in Montana and Canada are threatened with a new virus-like barley disease that appears to be etiologically novel. Ultrathin sections of diseased tissue contained enveloped, filamentous virus-like particles that measured 64 nanometers by 126 to 4000 nanometers. These lengths are unique for plant viruses. Unexpectedly, the(More)
