Complete nucleotide sequence of an infectious clone of a mild isolate of tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV)
Single-stranded DNA extracted from virions of the originally described tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV) served as a template for in vitro synthesis of its double-stranded form. Analysis withExpand

Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus, a Whitefly-Borne Geminivirus of Tomatoes
The first evidence of economic damage to vegetable crops caused by Bemisia tabaci Gennadius in Israel was recorded in 1931 (8), and since 1935 it has been a permanent pest, mainly in the JordanExpand

A zucchini yellow mosaic virus coat protein gene mutation restores aphid transmissibility but has no effect on multiplication.
An aphid-transmissible (AT) and two non-aphid-transmissible (NAT) isolates of zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV) were studied. The predicted amino acid sequences of the coat protein (CP) of theExpand

Infectious in vitro RNA transcripts derived from cloned cDNA of the cucurbit potyvirus, zucchini yellow mosaic virus.
A full-length cDNA clone of the RNA genome of the cucurbit potyvirus zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV) was constructed downstream from a bacteriophage T7 RNA polymerase promoter. A single extraExpand
