Summary.A potexvirus was isolated from creeping phlox (Phlox stolonifera) plants from a commercial nursery in Pennsylvania. The virus was serologically related to clover yellow mosaic virus, plantain virus X, potato virus X, and potato aucuba mosaic virus, and was most closely related to papaya mosaic virus (PapMV). The sequence of a PCR fragment obtained with potexvirus group-specific primers was distinct from that of PapMV; the coat protein (CP) gene and 3′ untranslated region (UTR) were… 
Characterization of Lagenaria mild mosaic virus, a New Potexvirus from Bottle Gourd in Myanmar.
Although LaMMoV is related closely to AltMV and PapMV, its nucleotide sequences differ from those of other previously reported potexviruses, and is reported as a new species of the genus Potexvirus that occurs in the cucurbit bottle gourd.
Alternanthera mosaic virus-an alternative ‘model’ potexvirus of broad relevance
Infectious clones of AltMV differing significantly in symptom severity and efficiency of RNA silencing suppression have been produced, suitable either for high level protein expression or for Virus-Induced Gene Silencing (VIGS; with weaker RNAsilencing suppression), demonstrating a range of utility not available with most other plant viral vectors.
Characterization of a not so new potexvirus from babaco (Vasconcellea x heilbornii)
Although serologically undistinguishable from PapMV and AltMV, the new virus showed differences in host range and symptom induction, and the name babaco mosaic virus is proposed for this newly characterized Potexvirus.
The complete nucleotide sequence of Alternanthera mosaic virus infecting Portulaca grandiflora represents a new strain distinct from phlox isolates
Phylogenetic analysis supports the view that AltMV-MU belongs to a new “portulaca’ genotype distinguishable from the “phlox” genotype, and the genome is different from those of all isolates described earlier and is most closely related to genomes of partly sequenced portulaca isolates.
Alternanthera mosaic potexvirus: Several Features, Properties, and Application
The structural difference between morphologically similar viral and virus-like particles on AltMV virions and VLPs is shown, showing high immunogenicity, enhancing the immune response to the target antigen thus offering the possibility of being used as potential adjuvants.
Phylogeny, coat protein genetic variability, and transmission via seeds of Hosta Virus X.
The complete genome of Hosta Virus X (HVX), which is thought to be a distinct species of Potexvirus, was sequenced. Nucleotide sequences of HVX were compared with those of other members of the genus
A Mixed Infection of Helenium Virus S With Two Distinct Isolates of Butterbur Mosaic Virus, One of Which Has a Major Deletion in an Essential Gene
These results demonstrate for the first time maintenance by complementation of a carlavirus isolate with a major deletion in an essential gene, and confirm that HelVS is a distinct species in the genus Carlavirus.
Molecular characterization of Lolium latent virus, proposed type member of a new genus in the family Flexiviridae
Characteristics indicate that LoLV forms a monotypic group separate from existing genera and unassigned species within the family Flexiviridae, for which the genus name Lolavirus is proposed.
Biological and molecular characterization of a putative new potexvirus infecting Senna occidentalis
In this work, we report the complete genome sequence of, production of polyclonal antibodies against, and development of biological assays for a putative new potexvirus, named senna mosaic virus


Identification of potexvirus isolates from creeping phlox and trailing portulaca as strains of Alternanthera mosaic virus, and comparison of the 3'-terminal portion of the viral genomes
Findings suggest that AltMV may be quite widespread, and may be mis-diagnosed as PapMV, the host range of which includes several ornamentals.
Characterisation of a virus from Australia that is closely related to papaya mosaic potexvirus
It is concluded that the Alternanthera virus is a different species from PMV, and its relationship with PMV resembles that of potyvirus subgroup members.
Plantain Virus X: a New Potexvirus from Plantago lanceolata
All of the properties described are consistent with PIVX being a distinct member of the potexvirus group.
Comparison and differentiation of potyvirus isolates and identification of strain-, virus-, subgroup-specific and potyvirus group-common epitopes using monoclonal antibodies.
The broad spectrum-reacting MAb PTY 1 recognizes a cryptotope conserved on all of the aphid-transmissible potyviruses examined and should be a valuable tool for the detection and assay of thesePotyvirus isolates.
Two unique US isolates of Pepino mosaic virus from a limited source of pooled tomato tissue are distinct from a third (European-like) US isolate
Three strains of Pepino mosaic virus found in the US have been cloned and sequenced by RT-PCR using total RNA from infected tissue as template, and degenerate potexvirus- and PepMV species- and isolate-specific primers, suggesting that TGBp1 and T GBp3 are more suitable than either the replicase or coat protein gene products for discriminating PepMv isolates.
The new plant virus family Flexiviridae and assessment of molecular criteria for species demarcation
The new plant virus family Flexiviridae is described. The family is named because its members have flexuous virions and it includes the existing genera Allexivirus, Capillovirus, Carlavirus,
Complete nucleotide sequence of Tulip virus X (TVX-J): the border between species and strains within the genus Potexvirus
It is concluded that TVX and PlAMV should be classified as distinct viruses due to the relatively distant relationships of their replication apparatus and triple gene blocks.
The entire nucleotide sequence of foxtail mosaic virus RNA.
The 5' terminus of the previously reported 0.9 kb subgenomic RNA was determined by S1 nuclease mapping and shown to begin with the sequence GAAGA, 43 nucleotides upstream from the first nucleotide of the coat protein initiation codon, entirely consistent with the previously published sizes of these sgRNAs.
The entire nucleotide sequence and genomic organization of potato aucuba mosaic potexvirus
The entire nucleotide sequence of cDNA clones of potato aucuba mosaic virus (PAMV) was determined and the genome and capsid protein gene of PAMV, are the largest among the potexviruses sequenced to date.
