Summary.A potyvirus from Chinese narcissus was transmitted mechanically to three species of Narcissus and to Lycoris radiata but not to 22 other test species. In western blot, the coat protein reacted strongly with Narcissus degeneration virus (UK isolate) antiserum. Antiserum raised to the Chinese virus did not react with eighteen other potyviruses. The complete nucleotide sequence (9816 nt) had the typical genome organisation for a member of the genus Potyvirus. Sequence comparisons and… Expand
The genetic diversity of narcissus viruses related to turnip mosaic virus blur arbitrary boundaries used to discriminate potyvirus species
Narcissus plants showing mosaic or striping leaves were collected from around Japan, and tested for virus infections using potyvirus-specific primers, finding narcissus yellow stripe virus (NYSV)-like viruses to be from five species and to be members of a single mega-species, narcissus virus.

Evolutionary rates and genetic diversities of mixed potyviruses in Narcissus.
The oldness of TMRCAs of the viruses correlated well with the greatness of nucleotide diversities, and the most recent common ancestors (TMRCAs) varied between virus species; NYSV and CyEVA were the oldest whereas NDV was the youngest. Expand
Narcissus yellow stripe virus and Narcissus mosaic virus detection in Narcissus via multiplex TaqMan‐based reverse transcription‐PCR assay
Development of a multiplex TaqMan RT‐qPCR assay to simultaneously detect Narcissus yellow stripe virus (NYSV) and Narcissus mosaic virus (NMV), frequently causing mixed narcissus infection.Expand
Aphid Transmission of Potyvirus: The Largest Plant-Infecting RNA Virus Genus
How the fundamental understanding of these multi-partite interactions through multi-omics approaches is already contributing to, and can have future implications for, devising effective and sustainable management strategies against aphid-transmitted potyviruses to global agriculture is examined.

Molecular identification of potyviruses in dutch stocks of Narcissus
It is concluded that at least three different potyviruses occur in Dutch stocks of Narcissus and that narcissus silver streak virus is identical to narcissus late season yellows virus. Expand
Molecular Characterization of Carla- and Potyviruses from Narcissus in China
Carlavirus fragments from both Chinese sites seemed to be of the same virus, which was most closely related in phylogenetic analyses to Potato virus M, Aconitum latent virus and Hop latent virus, most probably a new member of the genus Carlavirus. Expand
Molecular criteria for genus and species discrimination within the family Potyviridae
A phylogenetic analysis of the optimised nucleotide (nt) alignment of the entire ORFs of each fully-sequenced species in the family Potyviridae provided strong support for several subgroups within the genus Potyvirus, suggesting that the continuum of variation that is theoretically available is constrained or disrupted by molecular barriers that must have some biological significance.

Overview and analysis of the polyprotein cleavage sites in the family Potyviridae.
Comprehensive data for all sequences of each virus in the family Potyviridae, together with some summaries, have been made available and a revised series of cleavage sites for Sweet potato mild mottle virus is proposed with a conserved His at the P1 position. Expand
Potato Cell Plasma Membrane Receptors to Ring Rot Pathogen Extracellular Polysaccharides
It is proposed that a great number of receptors to EPS Crass are present in the plasma membranes of potato cells of susceptible cultivars which contain a small but sufficient quantity of receptor to EPS able to induce defensive responses in plants. Expand
