  author={A. R. Srivastava and Meraj Jaidi and S K Kumar and Shri Krishna Raj and Sudhir K. Shukla},
A severe leaf curl disease was observed on ~45% of the grain amaranth (Amaranthus cruentus L.) plants growing in experimental plots of CSIR-NBRI, Lucknow, India, during the year 2011. The causal pathogen was transmitted through whiteflies (Bemisia tabaci) from infected to healthy A. cruentus seedlings. Association of Papaya leaf curl virus (PLCV) with the disease was investigated by sequence analysis of ~2.7 kb cloned genome, amplified by Rolling Circle Amplification method from the total DNA… 
Association of an isolate of papaya leaf curl virus and papaya leaf curl betasatellite with leaf curl disease of radish in India
Radish (Raphanus sativus L.) plants of the cultivar Pusa Reshmi exhibiting severe leaf curl symptoms were observed in the cultivated fields at Lucknow with significant disease incidence and the associated betas satellite was identified as papaya leaf curl betasatellite (PaLCuB) based on its highest sequence identity and close relationship with PaLCuV.
Tomato Leaf Curl Sudan Virus (TLCSDV) causing leaf curl disease on a new host Amaranthus cruentus L.
Results showed that the associated virus could be a variant of Tomato leaf curl Sudan virus, a virus that occurs in Sudan, Yemen and Arabian Peninsula, which is the first report that about the Tomato leaf curled Sudan virus causing leaf curl disease on a new host Amaranthus in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Biological properties, transmission, serological characterization and varietal susceptibility of an isolate of Papaya leaf curl virus affecting papaya crops in Eastern Uttar Pradesh, India
The virus isolate was identified as Papaya leaf curl virus (PaLCuV) and was successfully transmitted by whitefly (Bemisia tabaci) but not by mechanical (sap) transmission on Carica papaya plants.
A molecular insight into papaya leaf curl—a severe viral disease
The current understanding of papaya leaf curl disease, genomic components including satellite DNA associated with the virus, wide host and vector range, and management of the disease are presented and possible generic resistance strategies are suggested.
