In plants of Cactaceae A. L. Juss. family occurrence of fasciated shoots and cristation of stems is often observed. Many studies have shown differences in the intensity of expression growth factors and genes associated with fasciation (cristation). We tested nine samples on viral infection, including Mammillaria elongata A. P. de Candolle f. cristata, growing on their own roots. The Scions: Mammillaria elongata A. P. de Candolle f. cristata, Echinopsis chamaecereus  H. Friedr. &  Glaetzle f…

Detection of Co-Infection of Notocactus leninghausii f. cristatus with Six Virus Species in South Korea

Co-infection with two virus species was previously reported in some cactus plants. Here, we showed that Notocactus leninghausii f. cristatus can be co-infected with six different viruses: cactus mild

Opuntia spp.



Cactus mild mottle virus is a new cactus-infecting tobamovirus

Sequence analyses of the coat protein and movement protein genes revealed that the highest amino acid sequence identity between the virus and seventeen other tobamoviruses was 40.6%, supporting the view that CMMoV is a new definite species of the genus Tobamovirus.


Fasciated plants have been shown to be free of bacterial and virus infections, and phytohormones and wounding as causal agents of fasciations can be excluded.

Leafy gall formation by Rhodococcus fascians.

Rhodococcus fascians infects a wide range of plants, initiating the formation of leafy galls that consist of centers of shoot amplification and shoot growth inhibition. R. fascians is an epiphyte but

Molecular characterisation of potexviruses isolated from three different genera in the family Cactaceae

The genome properties of three potexviruses which previously had been isolated from different genera in the family Cactaceae and had been found to be only distantly related serologically have been studied suggest that these viruses should be regarded as distinct virus species for which the names Zygocactus virus X, Schlumbergera virus X and Opuntia virus X are proposed.

Fasciation Mutation Enhances Meristematic Activity and Alters Pattern Formation in Soybean

The recessive f mutation in soybean results in a ridgelike apical meristem that completely dominates plant ontogeny and causes virtually complete inhibition of leaf axillary buds and restriction of

Genome organization and gene expression of saguaro cactus carmovirus.

Analysis of the nucleotide and predicted amino acid sequences supports the classification of SCV in the genus Carmovirus in the family Tombusviridae and a synthetic transcript with the p9 ORF at the 5' end is a more efficient messenger for p9.

Inefficient double-strand DNA break repair is associated with increased fasciation in Arabidopsis BRCA2 mutants

Data suggest that inefficient DSB repair in the AtBRCA2a-1/atbrca2b-1 mutant leads to disorganization of the programmed cell cycle of apical meristems.

Shoot and floral meristem maintenance in arabidopsis.

Recent results demonstrating that the fate of stem cells in Arabidopsis shoot and floral meristems is controlled by overlapping spatial and temporal signaling systems are summarized.
