A survey of viruses in the major cucurbit-growing areas of 17 provinces in Iran was conducted in 2005 and 2006. A total of 1699 leaf samples were collected from melon, squash, cucumber and watermelon plants showing various virus-like symptoms. Screening for 11 cucurbit viruses by double-antibody sandwich ELISA (DAS-ELISA) or RT-PCR, found that 71% of the samples were infected by at least one virus, of which Cucurbit aphid-borne yellows virus (CABYV) was the most common overall, occurring in 49… Expand

Current status of Cucurbit aphid-borne yellows virus in some greenhouse and open field cucumber in Iran
The phylogenetic analysis revealed that although belonging to the CAByV-C, the Iranian cucumber CABYV isolates clustered within this strain in two phylogenetically distinct subgroups which might have an independent origin and/or introduction in Iran. Expand
