Cucumber mosaic virus mutants with altered physical properties and defective in aphid vector transmission.

Abstract

Two mutant strains of cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) were investigated with respect to virion stability and molecular determinants of aphid vector transmission. The mutant 2A1-MT-60x, derived from the mechanically passaged wild type 2A1-AT, is poorly transmissible by the aphid Aphis gossypii and not transmissible by the aphid Myzus persicae, whereas the wild… (More)
