Little is currently known regarding the specific interactions that govern transmission of plant viruses by their vectors. A cucumber necrosis virus (CNV) variant (LL5) deficient in fungal transmissibility has been isolated from mechanically passaged CNV and characterized. Although LL5 accumulates to wild-type (WT) levels, is capable of rapid systemic infection, and produces stable, highly infectious particles, it is only inefficiently transmitted by Olpidium bornovanus zoospores. The LL5 coat… CONTINUE READING
