A bipartite genome geminivirus infecting tomatoes in northwestern Mexico was sap transmitted to tomato, Nicotiana benthamiana, and common bean and induced leaf crumpling, epinasty, and mottling. Geminivirus DNA-A and DNA-B components were each cloned from infected N. benthamiana and bean leaves. The N. benthamiana DNA- A and DNA-B components were infectious but induced only mild symptoms in N. benthamiana plants. The reduction in symptom severity was not the result of impaired replication of… CONTINUE READING
