Apple mosaic virus (ApMV, genus Ilarvirus) was detected in pears, a previously non-reported virus host. No symptoms were visible on the host’s leaves. Seventeen out of 22 randomly selected pear trees in Italy (Lombardy) and in three regions in the Czech Republic were ApMV-infected. All nine newly sequenced ApMV isolates from pears had a 15-nucleotide insertion in the capsid protein gene in identical position of that of apple isolates compared with isolates from hop and prunes. The insertion is… Expand

Reflects the coat protein variability of apple mosaic virus host preference?
The phylogenetic analysis of complete capsid protein gene of the largest set of ApMV isolates discriminated two main clusters of isolates: one cluster correlates with Maloideae hosts and Trebouxia lichen algae hosts; a second with hop, Prunus, and other woody tree hosts. Expand
Characterization of Apple mosaic virus isolates detected in hazelnut in Poland
Phylogenetic analysis showed that ApMV isolates from hazelnut grouped separately from the virus strains found in other plant species. Expand
Occurrence and Diversity of Pome Fruit Viruses in Apple and Pear Orchards in Latvia
This is the first report of the occurrence of ACLSV, ASGV and ASPV in apple and pear trees in Latvia and demonstrates their genetic diversity in different host genotypes. Expand

RECCO performed better than the RDP package in detecting recombination events and exhibiting their evolution rate along the sequences of the five viruses, so the two methods should be considered complementary. Expand
The Incidence and Genetic Diversity of Apple Mosaic Virus (ApMV) and Prune Dwarf Virus (PDV) in Prunus Species in Australia
High-throughput sequencing of amplicons from partial conserved regions of RNA1, RNA2, and RNA3, encoding the methyltransferase, RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, and the coat protein genes respectively, of ApMV and PDV was used to determine the genetic diversity of the Australian isolates of each virus.

Infection and distribution of Apple mosaic virus (ApMV) on cultivating plum in Amasya and Tokat provinces.
The aim of the study was to determine the current status of European plum line pattern disease caused by Apple mosaic virus (ApMV) in these provinces and the results confirmed the ELISA test results. Expand
Simultaneous detection of Apple mosaic virus in cultivated hazelnuts by one-tube RT-PCR
To the authors' knowledge, this is the first report of the simultaneous detection of the virus by RT-PCR, an alternative detection of ApMV in hazelnut hosts. Expand
Survey of Apple mosaic virus in apple-growing provinces of East Anatolia (Malatya and Van) by RNA probe hybridization assay and RT-PCR
Two main apple growing provinces (Van and Malatya) of East Anatolia were surveyed for the presence of the Apple mosaic virus (ApMV). Dot-blot hybridization and RT-PCR tests were implemented toExpand
The occurrence of Ilarviruses in Latvian fruit orchards.
The obtained data indicate a great need for the establishment of a certification system for fruit tree propagation and also PNRSV and PDV possibly are more widely spread than detected with preliminary screening by DAS ELISA. Expand
SUMMARY The status of Apple mosaic virus (ApMV), causal agent of hazelnut mosaic, was investigated in Turkey by examining hazelnut plants visually, serologically and by biological indexing. A surveyExpand


Remarkable variability of apple mosaic virus capsid protein gene after nucleotide position 141
The predicted folding of the translated protein is not influenced by the insertions or frameshift, and it is speculated that the region after nt position 141 is without reasonable selection pressure and represents a hot spot for the accumulation of insertion mutations in ApMV. Expand
Diversity of the coat protein-coding region among Ilarvirus isolates infecting hop in Australia
Coat protein (CP) sequences of 17 Ilarvirus isolates were obtained from hops at three farms in Tasmania, Australia. Phylogenetic analysis of these sequences and additional database sequencesExpand
Evolutionary relationships in the ilarviruses: nucleotide sequence of prunus necrotic ringspot virus RNA 3.
Comparison and phylogenetic analysis of both the MP and CP proteins revealed a higher relationship of A1MV to PNRSV, apple mosaic virus (ApMV) and PDV than any other member of the ilarvirus group. Expand
Nucleotide sequence of apple mosaic ilarvirus RNA 4.
The results support the idea that both features (metal-binding domain and highly conserved hairpin structures) are characteristics of ilarviruses and are probably involved in the peculiar 'genome activation' phenomenon described in these viruses. Expand
Prunus necrotic ringspot ilarvirus: nucleotide sequence of RNA3 and the relationship to other ilarviruses based on coat protein comparison.
The RNA3 of prunus necrotic ringspot ilarvirus (PNRSV) has been cloned and its entire sequence determined and showed a high degree of similarity with those of tobacco streak virus (TSV), prune dwarf virus (PDV), apple mosaic virus (ApMV) and also alfalfa mosaicirus (AIMV). Expand
The nucleotide sequence of apple mosaic virus coat protein gene has no similarity with other Bromoviridae coat protein genes.
The predicted amino acid sequence of the amino-terminal region of the ApMV coat protein is basic, rich in cysteine residues and may contain a zinc finger motif similar to that found in TSV. Expand
The complete nucleotide sequence of apple mosaic virus RNA-3
The complete nucleotide sequence of apple mosaic ilarvirus (ApMV) RNA-3 has been determined from cloned viral cDNAs and was not homologous to tobacco streak virus, prune dwarf virus, alfalfa mosaic virus or other members of theBromoviridae. Expand
