  • A previously unreported badnavirus was found to be associated with a mosaic disease occurring commonly in orchard trees and nursery plants of citrus in India. The virus had 30 x 150 nm nonenveloped bacilliform particles typical of badnaviruses, and was found by immunosorbent electron microscopy to be related serologically to sugarcane bacilliform and to eight other badnaviruses. Upon PCR amplification using degenerate oligonucleotide primers based on conserved badnavirus genomic sequences, the… CONTINUE READING
