The complete RNA genomic sequence of a new virus infecting Mikania micrantha, designated as Mikania micrantha wilt virus (MMWV), has been determined. The genomic sequence and the predicted gene products of MMWV were similar to those of the other viruses of the genus Fabavirus. The MMWV nucleotide sequence showed 75.6% identity to that of gentian mosaic virus, 56.6 and 57% identity to those of two Broad bean wilt virus1 isolates, and between 55.7 and 58% identity to those of seven Broad bean… 

Complete genomic sequence analysis reveals a novel fabavirus infecting cucurbits in China

The complete genome sequence of a cucurbit-infecting fabavirus was determined and it was found that this virus represents a distinct species, for which the species name Cucurbit mild mosaic virus (CuMMV) is proposed.

The complete genome sequence of Lamium mild mosaic virus, a member of the genus Fabavirus

The complete genome sequence of Lamium mild mosaic virus was determined and compared with the available complete genome sequences of other members of the genus Fabavirus, andylogenetic analysis of the amino acid sequences of the protease-polymerase (Pro-Pol) region and the two coat proteins confirmed that LMMV belongs to a distinct species within the genusFabavirus.

Effects of Mikania micrantha wilt virus infection on photosynthesis and the activities of four enzymes in Mikania micrantha H.B.K.

The activity of PPO in infected M.micrantha leaves reached maximal levels at 8 d post-infection,increasing to 77.75% above control levels,however PPO levels were 14.27% below control levels by 32 d.

Detection and identification of Fabavirus species by one-step RT-PCR and multiplex RT-PCR.

Mikania Micrantha Wilt Virus Alters Insect Vector’s Host Preference to Enhance Its Own Spread

MMWV appeared to be able to manipulate its plant host to first attract insect vectors to infected plants but then repel viruliferous vectors to promote its own dispersal, its potential application for invasive weed management is discussed.

Rapid detection and discrimination of fabaviruses by flow-through hybridisation with genus- and species-specific riboprobes

The development of a procedure based on flow-through hybridisation (FTH), which is faster than and as sensitive as conventional hybridisation for virus detection in tissue-prints from infected plants, and opens the possibility of discovering new species of the genus Fabavirus.

Exploring the Polyadenylated RNA Virome of Sweet Potato through High-Throughput Sequencing

This is the first insight into the sweet potato polyadenylated RNA virome, and can serve as a basis for further work to investigate whether some of the 'new' viruses infecting sweet potato are pathogenic.

Transient Expression of Homologous Hairpin RNA Interferes with Broad bean wilt virus 2 Infection in Nicotiana benthamiana

sequence alignments showedseveral conserved sequences in 5' non-coding regions (5' NCRs) of RNA 1 and RNA 2 in all BBWV2 strainscharacterized so far, indicating that RNA silencing is responsible for the resistance to BBWv2.

Digital Gene Expression Analysis Based on Integrated De Novo Transcriptome Assembly of Sweet Potato [Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam.]

Characterization of sweet potato transcriptome provides an effective tool for better understanding the molecular mechanisms of cellular processes including development of leaves and storage roots, tissue-specific gene expression, potential biotic and abiotic stress response in sweet potato.

Gentian mosaic virus: A New Species in the Genus Fabavirus.

The results suggest that N-1 represents a new species of Fabavirus that was transmitted mechanically to nine plant species in six families and proposed the name Gentian mosaic virus for this new species.

The complete sequence of a Spanish isolate of Broad bean wilt virus 1 (BBWV-1) reveals a high variability and conserved motifs in the genus Fabavirus

The genome of a Spanish isolate of Broad bean wilt virus-1 was completely sequenced and compared with available sequences of other isolates of the genus Fabavirus, and sequence stretches in the 5′ non-coding regions which are conserved in both genomic RNAs and in BBWV-1 and BBW V-2 isolates were showed.

Sequence analysis and genomic organization of Aphid lethal paralysis virus: a new member of the family Dicistroviridae.

Infectivity experiments showed that ALPV can not only infect aphid species but is also able to infect the whitefly Trialeurodes vaporariorum, extending its host range to another family of the order Hemiptera.

Complete nucleotide sequence of the genome organization of RNAff2 of patchouli mild mosaic virus, a new favavirus

The complete nucleotide sequence and the genome organization of the RNA 2 of a patchouli mild mosaic virus was determined and results strongly suggest that PaMMV is a member in the genus Fabavirus.

Complete Nucleotide Sequence and the Genome Organization of Patchouli Mild Mosaic Virus RNA1

The nucleotide sequence of the RNA1 of Patchouli mild mosaic virus (PatMMV) has been determined and as PatMMV RNA showed high sequence identity with BBWV-2 RNA, PaMMV may be one strain of BBWVs-2.

Analysis of genetic relations between Broad bean wilt virus 1 and Broad bean wilt virus 2

The results clearly support the placement of BBWV-1 and BBwV-2 in the genus Fabavirus as distinct species, proposed on the basis of double immunodiffusion tests.

Chromosomal polymorphism in 12 populations of Mikania micrantha (Compositae)

Numerical and structural variation of the chromosomes was quite common among the karyotypes and nearly all cytotypes differed from each other in some aspect, and most of the chromosomal differentiation may be attributed to inversions and addition or deletion of DNA fragments.
