Complete nucleotide sequence of an infectious clone of a mild isolate of tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV)
Based on restriction analysis and hybridization tests, it is suggested that the first described culture of TYLCV consists of two viral DNA populations reflecting some slight sequence differences. Expand
Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus, a Whitefly-Borne Geminivirus of Tomatoes
The viral nature of the disease and its spread by B. tabaci were confirmed this time and become the major limiting factor in tomato production during both the summer and the winter. Expand

  • 1 November 2000
A description of visual cues affecting the phototactic response of insects and cultural practices developed to protect crops from insects and insect-borne viruses by disrupting their searching behaviour and response are described. Expand
Spread of Tomato apical stunt viroid (TASVd) in Greenhouse Tomato Crops Is Associated with Seed Transmission and Bumble Bee Activity.
It is suggested that the primary spread of the viroid in greenhouse tomato plants is by seed transmission, and secondary distribution occurs by the pollination activity of bumble bees. Expand
Effect of a UV-deficient environment on the biology and flight activity ofMyzus persicae and its hymenopterous parasiteAphidius matricariae
Elimination of UV by UV-absorbing film did not affect the parasitic activity of A. matricariae, which makes the use of UV- absorption films an effective component of IPM that aims to reduce the application of toxic insecticides. Expand
Occurrence of a variant of cucumber green mottle mosaic virus in ISRAEL
A virus was isolated from naturally infected melons and squirting cucumber plants collected in the northern part of Israel and identified as a variant of cucumber green mottle mosaic virus. Expand
Biological and molecular characterization of a new cucurbit-infecting tobamovirus.
Comparisons of sequences and phylogenetic analysis suggested that the cucurbit-infecting Tobamoviruses be separated into two subgroups: subgroup I comprising the strains and isolates referred to in the literature as Cucumber green mottle mosaic virus (CGMMV), and the Yodo strain of CGMMV, which is closely related to KGMMV and may be considered a strain of it.

Ipomoea crinkle leaf curl caused by a whitefly-transmitted gemini-like virus
Summary A whitefly-transmitted infectious agent, associated with geminate particles, induced distinct symptoms on several Ipomoea species, but not on I. batatas cv. Georgia Jet. The virus wasExpand
