Inheritance of Resistance to Watermelon Mosaic Virus in Cucumis melo L.

  title={Inheritance of Resistance to Watermelon Mosaic Virus in Cucumis melo L.},
  author={Raphael Z. Gilbert and Molly M. Kyle and Henry M. Munger and Stewart M. Gray},
Resistance to watermelon mosaic virus (WMV) was transferred by successive backcrossing with selection from Cucumis melo PI 414723 to three melon varieties. Levels of resistance to virus accumulation in leaf tissue were evaluated using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, and procedures are described to select resistant individuals effi- ciently and accurately in segregating populations. Resistance is controlled by a single dominant. gene designated Wmr. Plants that carry this gene initially…

Inheritance of Resistance to Watermelon mosaic virus in Cucumis melo that Impairs Virus Accumulation, Symptom Expression, and Aphid Transmission.

Using aphid inoculations, resistant plants showed a lower propensity for infection by WMV and for serving as virus sources for secondary spread once infected, and resistance was determined to be under recessive genetic control.

Potential Sources of Resistance for Melon to Nonpersistently Aphid-borne Viruses.

Accessions C-885 and C-769 exhibited resistance to PRSV-W, WMV, and ZYMV; therefore they are potential sources of multiple resistance.

Determination of BATEM's melon pure lines for resistance to ZYMV.

In this study 60 Bato Akdeniz Research Instute melon pure lines were tested for resistance to ZYMV in Kocayatak test compartments and the results show that 31 melonpure lines were resistant and 29 lines were susceptible to ZyMV, which can be successfully used in breeding studies.

Genetics of resistance in Luffa cylindrica Roem. against Tomato leaf curl New Delhi virus

Resistance to Tomato leaf curl New Delhi virus associated with yellow mosaic disease of sponge gourd is controlled by a single dominant gene in the genetic background of the resistant parents (DSG-6 and DSG-7) and that these two lines can be effectively utilized for the development of high-yielding andyellow mosaic disease-resistant varieties/hybrids of spongegourd.

Herança da resistência a Watermelon mosaic virus em melancia

Aiming to study the inheritance of resistance to WMV in watermelon, crosses were made between Crimson Sweet and the resistant line L26, and the hypothesis of monogenic inheritance was rejected.

Inheritance of Resistance to Cucumber Green Mottle Mosaic Virus in Cucumis melo L. ‘Chang Bougi’

The segregation ratios in F2 and backcross progeny indicated that resistance to CGMMV-SH in ‘Chang Bougi’ is dependent on two independent complementary recessive genes, which the authors propose to call cucumber green mottle mosaic virus resistance-1 (cgmmv-1) and cucumberGreen mottles mosaic virus Resistance-2 (cGmmv -2).

Inheritance of Resistance to Papaya Ringspot Virus-Papaya Strain in Melon (Cucumis melo L.)

The genetic analysis results revealed that a single dominant gene conferred resistance to PRSV-P in Yamatouri and its generation, and breeding experiments were conducted by crossing the resistant Yam atouri with susceptible Vakharman.

Screening of Luffa cylindrica Roem. for resistance against Tomato Leaf Curl New Delhi Virus, inheritance of resistance, and identification of SRAP markers linked to the single dominant resistance gene

Summary Sponge gourd (Luffa cylindrica Roem.) is a popular cucurbitaceous vegetable on the Indian sub-continent. The crop is severely affected by Tomato Leaf Curl New Delhi Virus (ToLCNDV) a

Two complementary recessive genes conferring resistance to Cucurbit Aphid Borne Yellows Luteovirus in an Indian melon line (cucumis melo L.)

In the three trials performed, segregation analysis were consistent with the hypothesis that the resistance to CABYV in PI 124112 is conferred by two independent complementary recessive genes, for which the symbols cab-1 and cab-2T are proposed.

New source of resistance to mosaic virus transmission by Aphis gossypii in melon

The genetic analysis of the progenies obtained crossing this accession with the susceptible Spanish cultivar ‘Bolade Oro’ showed that the resistance to mosaic virus transmission is conferred by the presence of a dominant gene.



Inheritance of resistance to cucumber mosaic virus transmission by Aphis gossypii in Cucumis melo.

Melon (Cucumis melo) line PI 161375 (SC), which is resistant to the resistance to CMV "common" strains which is under an oligogenic cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) transmission by Aphisgossypii, was crossed recessive genetic control.

Powdery mildew resistance genes in Muskmelon

Seven previously undescribed genes in muskmelon (Cucumis melo L.) for resistance to powdery mildew [Sphaerotheca fuliginea (Schlecht. ex Fr.) Poll., races 1 and 2] are reported. Progeny 92417 has a

Enhancement of Cucumber Mosaic Virus Multiplication by Zucchini Yellow Mosaic Virus in Doubly Infected Cucumber Plants

Examination ofCMV infected protoplasts prepared from singly and doubly infected cucumber leaves suggested that higher concentration of CMV in double infection was due not only to the increase of CMVs quantity in individual cells, but also to the increases in proportion of CMv infected cells.

Resistance to Aphis gossypii in Muskmelon

Muskmelons resistant to southeastern biotypes of aphid were susceptible to the western biotype and breeding line LJ 90234 was very susceptible to western flower thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande).

Taxonomy of potyviruses: current problems and some solutions.

An analysis of the data supports the view that the potyvirus group, including the non-aphid-transmitted viruses, should be elevated to family status, that the vector transmission mode should define the four genera, and that distinct potyviruses correspond to species and their variants to strains.

Characteristics of the microplate method of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the detection of plant viruses.

The method enabled the highly sensitive detection of a number of morphologically different viruses in purified preparations and in unclarified extracts of herbaceous hosts and of infected crop plants.

Enzyme immunoassays in diagnostic medicine. Theory and practice.

The enzyme immunoassay methods developed recently and reviewed here hold great promise for application in a wide variety of conditions and can be as sensitive as radio-immunoassays, but they can also be adapted as simple field screening procedures.
