Mealybug wilt of pineapple (MWP) is one of the most destructive diseases of pineapple (Ananas comosus) worldwide. At least one Ampelovirus species, Pineapple mealybug wilt associated virus-2 (PMWaV-2), and mealybug feeding are involved in the etiology of MWP. A previously undescribed Ampelovirus sharing highest homology with PMWaV-1 and a putative deletion mutant sharing highest homology with PMWaV-2 were detected with reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assays using…

Characterization and Control of Pineapple Mealybug Wilt Associated
TLDR
The results show that PMWaV-3 shares 64, 73, and 79% amino acid identity with PMWav-1 in the RNA dependent RNA polymerase, small hydrophobic protein, and HSP-70 homolog ORFs, respectively, and that PM WaV-1 is not a necessary component in MWP but correlates with reduced yields.
The genetic diversity of ampeloviruses in Australian pineapples and their association with mealybug wilt disease
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of selected regions of these sequences indicated that Pineapple mealybug wilt-associated virus 5 is a distinct species and most closely related to PMWaV-1, which was the most commonly found of the four viruses and conversely PM WaV-5 was only occasionally found.
Further genomic characterization of pineapple mealybug wilt-associated viruses using high-throughput sequencing
TLDR
The further genomic characterization of several pineapple mealybug wilt-associated virus (PMWaV) members of the genus Ampelovirus, family Closteroviridae using high-throughput sequencing (HTS) indicates PMWaV-4 is a distinct strain of PM WaV-1 but not a distinct ampelovirus species.
Mealybug Wilt of Pineapple and Associated Viruses
TLDR
More research is necessary to explore the confusing etiology of the MWP disease, and to shed light upon the symptom development, it is possible that further, uncharacterized PMWaVs may be present in symptomatic pineapple plants that test negative for PMWaV-2, explaining the inconsistency in symptom development.
Genome organization and phylogenetic relationship of Pineapple mealybug wilt associated virus-3 with family Closteroviridae members
TLDR
The nucleotide sequence of Pineapple mealybug wilt associated virus-3 (PMWaV-3) (Closteroviridae: Ampelovirus), spanning seven open reading frames (ORFs) and the untranslatable region of the 3′ end was determined and it is proposed PMWaVs-3 is a new species in the PMWaV complex.
First report of Pineapple mealybug wilt associated virus-3 infecting pineapple in Cuba
TLDR
Pineapple mealybug wilt of pineapple (MWP) infection has been correlated with 5 to 15% of ratoon crop yield reduction and losses of up to 30% of production due to premature or asynchronous fruit ripeness in Hawaii, and these two viruses have similar deleterious effects on either growth rate or pineapple fruit yield.
Complete nucleotide sequence and genome organization of pineapple mealybug wilt-associated virus-1
TLDR
The complete genome of PMWaV-1 was sequenced and found to be 13.1 kb in length, making it the smallest in the family and unusual for an ampelovirus.
Interaction of Rotylenchulus reniformis and Meloidogyne javanica with mealybug wilt of pineapple, in microplots
TLDR
The results of this experiment emphasize the need for further studies conducted in commercial plantations to understand the interactions among RKN, RN and MWP, and their relative importance, since these are often misdiagnosed and consequently poorly managed.
Transmission characteristics of Pineapple mealybug wilt associated virus-2 by the grey pineapple mealybugs Dysmicoccus neobrevipes in Hawaii.
TLDR
Data show that PMWaV-2 is transmitted by the grey pineapple mealybug in a semi-persistent manner, and a potential management strategy based on these findings is discussed.

Differentiation, Distribution, and Elimination of Two Different Pineapple mealybug wilt-associated viruses Found in Pineapple.
TLDR
Tissue blot immunoassays with two different monoclonal antibodies specific to either PM WaV-1 or PMWaV-2 indicated that both closteroviruses are widely distributed throughout the pineapple-growing areas of the world.
Closterovirus infection and mealybug exposure are necessary for the development of mealybug wilt of pineapple disease.
TLDR
A PMWaV-2-specific monoclonal antibody was produced that decorated the particles in immunosorbent electron microscopy and detected the virus in tissue blot immunoassays and developed MWP symptoms while sustaining mealybug populations.
Transmission of Pineapple Mealybug Wilt-Associated Virus by Two Species of Mealybug (Dysmicoccus spp.).
TLDR
All stages of D. neobrevipes acquired PMWaV, although vector efficiency decreased significantly in older adult females, and the presence of ants was correlated with an increased rate of virus spread when caged with D. brevipes.
Detection of pineapple closterovirus in pineapple plants and mealybugs using monoclonal antibodies
TLDR
PCV was detected in symptomatic and asymptomatic pineapple plants collected from Oahu and Maui, and pineapple collections in the USDA/ARS National Clonal Germplasm Repository, but was not detected from pineapple plants grown from seed.
Interactions Between Rotylenchus reniformis and Pineapple mealybug wilt associated virus-1 in Pineapple.
TLDR
PMWaV-1 infection may be one of the reasons for asynchronous fruit ripening, which is a top limiting factor for pineapple production in Hawaii.
The family Closteroviridae revised
TLDR
The mealybug-transmitted species have been separated from the genus Closterovirus and accommodated in a new genus named Ampelovirus (from ampelos, Greek for grapevine), and the family now comprises three genera.
Unusual sequence relationships between two isolates of citrus tristeza virus.
TLDR
The observed deviation between the large RNA genomes of the two CTV strains is greater than that among different viruses of most other groups, raising the question of how to define the taxonomy of these viruses.
Nucleotide sequence, genome organization and phylogenetic analysis of pineapple mealybug wilt-associated virus-2.
TLDR
The genome of pineapple mealybug wilt-associated closterovirus-2 was cloned from double-stranded RNA isolated from diseased pineapple and its sequence determined, andylogenetic analysis revealed that within the family CLOSTEROVIRIDAE: the mealy bug-transmitted PMWaV-2 is more closely related to other mealy bugs than to those which are transmitted by aphids or whiteflies.
Yield Impact and Spread of Pineapple mealybug wilt associated virus-2 and Mealybug Wilt of Pineapple in Hawaii.
TLDR
Yield reductions were dependent on time of MWP symptom development; the earlier the expression of symptoms the greater the impact on fruit yields, and patterns of both PMWaV-2 incidence and MWP were overdispersed.
Two paths of sequence divergence in the citrus tristeza virus complex.
TLDR
The T36 group is differentiated from the VT group by the highly divergent 5' genomic sequence, which can serve as a measure of the extent of sequence divergence and can be used to define new groups and group members in the CTV complex.
