ABSTRACT Mycoviruses have been detected in all major groups of filamentous fungi, and their study represents an important branch of virology. Here, we characterized a novel double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) mycovirus, S clerotinia s clerotiorum megabirnavirus 1 (SsMBV1), in an apparently hypovirulent strain (SX466) of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum. Two similarly sized dsRNA segments (L1- and L2-dsRNA), the genome of SsMBV1, are packaged in rigid spherical particles purified from strain SX466. The full… Expand
Characterization of a novel Sclerotinia sclerotiorum RNA virus as the prototype of a new proposed family within the order Tymovirales.
TLDR
The combined results suggest that SsDFV1 could represent a new positive-sense single-stranded RNA virus with some unique molecular features, and it is proposed to create a tentative family Deltaflexiviridae that accommodates Ss DFV1. Expand

Characterization of a novel single-stranded RNA virus, closely related to fusariviruses, infecting the plant pathogenic fungus Alternaria brassicicola.
The alternaria blackspot of rapeseed is one of the most prominent diseases of rapeseed. It is caused by three species of the genus Alternaria: Alternaria brassicicola, Alternaria brassicae, andExpand
Characterization of a new megabirnavirus that confers hypovirulence with the aid of a co-infecting partitivirus to the host fungus, Rosellinia necatrix.
TLDR
Interestingly, RnPV1 accumulation appeared to be increased in co-infected fungal strain with two segments of RnMBV2 relative to singly infected fungal strains, while the individual viruses exhibited asymptomatic infections. Expand
New insights into reovirus evolution: implications from a newly characterized mycoreovirus.
TLDR
Evidence is provided indicating that reoviruses indeed have HGT events with other virus lineages on a large scale and that HGT may serve as an important driving factor that plays a key role in the evolution of reovIRuses. Expand
A Novel Deltaflexivirus that Infects the Plant Fungal Pathogen, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, Can Be Transmitted Among Host Vegetative Incompatible Strains
TLDR
It is determined that SsDFV2 could be efficiently transmitted to host vegetative incompatible individuals by dual culture, the first report that a (+) ssRNA mycovirus can overcome the transmission limitations of the vegetative incompatibility system. Expand
Co-infection of a hypovirulent isolate of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum with a new botybirnavirus and a strain of a mitovirus
TLDR
These findings supplied a first evidence that a single S. sclerotiorum strain is co-infected by dsRNA and + ssRNA mycoviruses. Expand
Molecular characterization of a new monopartite dsRNA mycovirus from mycorrhizal Thelephora terrestris (Ehrh.) and its detection in soil oribatid mites (Acari: Oribatida).
TLDR
A novel dsRNA virus was identified in the mycorrhizal fungus Thelephora terrestris (Ehrh.) and sequenced and the first description of mycovirus presence in oribatid mites is described. Expand
Isolation and characterization of a novel mycovirus from Penicillium digitatum.
TLDR
The first isolation and characterization of a mycovirus from P. digitatum that contributes to the hypovirulence phenotypes of the host strain is reported. Expand
Molecular characterization of a novel fusarivirus infecting the edible fungus Auricularia heimuer
TLDR
The data suggest that AhFV1 should be classified as a member of the newly proposed family “Fusariviridae”, which is the second virus and the first full genome sequence of a fusarvirus from A. heimuer. Expand

Molecular characterization of two positive-strand RNA viruses co-infecting a hypovirulent strain of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum.
TLDR
It is concluded that SsDRV/SX247 is a novel strain in species S sDRV of genus Sclerodarnavirus, whereas SsHV2/S X 247 is a representative member of new proposed lineage Gammahypovirus in the family Hypoviridae and confers hypovirulence in its host. Expand

Characterization of a Novel Bipartite Double-Stranded RNA Mycovirus Conferring Hypovirulence in the Phytopathogenic Fungus Botrytis porri
TLDR
The biological and molecular features of a novel bipartite double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) mycovirus named BpRV1 from the hypovirulent strain GarlicBc-72 of B. porri are reported and Phylogenetic analysis showed that it belongs to a separate clade distinct from those of other known RNA myCoviruses.

Genome rearrangement of a mycovirus Rosellinia necatrix megabirnavirus 1 affecting its ability to attenuate virulence of the host fungus.
TLDR
This isolated strain of RnMBV1 with genome rearrangements had a newly emerged segment named dsRNAS1, but with loss of dsRNA2, which contains two ORFs of unknown function, suggesting that ds RNA2, while dispensable for virus replication, is required to reduce the virulence of R. necatrix. Expand
