Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) is a crop of growing importance throughout West and Central Africa. Recently, several begomoviruses (genus Begomovirus; family Geminiviridae) have been associated with leaf curl and yellow leaf curl symptoms in tomato crops in West Africa, including tomato yellow leaf curl Mali virus (TYLCMLV), tomato yellow crumple virus (TYLCrV), tomato leaf curl Mali virus (ToLCMLV), tomato leaf curl Nigeria virus (ToLCNGV), tomato leaf curl Ghana virus (ToLCGHV), tomato leaf… Expand
Two genetically related begomoviruses causing tomato leaf curl disease in Togo and Nigeria differ in virulence and host range but do not require a betasatellite for induction of disease symptoms
TLDR
Replication and systemic spread of ToLCTGB in tomato was mediated by ToLCKuV-TG and ToLCNGV; however, the betasatellite had no effect on disease symptoms induced by either begomovirus and did not appear to play a role in ToLCD. Expand
Molecular characterization of begomoviruses and DNA satellites associated with okra leaf curl disease in Cameroon.
TLDR
The nucleotide comparisons and phylogenetic analyses suggest that these isolates represent new Cameroonian strains of CLCuGeV and OYCrV (CLCuGeV-CM and OyCrV- CM) and mixed infection of OLCuCMV and SOTA-CM was found in two of the plants, emphasizing the extent of diversity among okra-infecting begomovirus-satellite complexes in western Africa. Expand
Compatibility and interaction of begomoviruses and DNA-satellites causing leaf curl disease in Asia, Africa and Mediterranean Region
TLDR
It is confirmed that geographically diverseBegomoviruses can functionally interact with non-cognate DNA-satellites, which may cause the emergence of new begomovirus-satellite complexes. Expand
Begomovirus disease complex: emerging threat to vegetable production systems of West and Central Africa
TLDR
A close relationship between the begomoviruses infecting pepper and tomato and A. conyzoides and the detection of the same alphasatellite in them support the idea that weeds are important reservoirs for begomviruses and their satellites. Expand
Mixed infection by two West African tomato-infecting begomoviruses and ageratum leaf curl Cameroon betasatellite in tomato in Cameroon
TLDR
The identification of ALCCMB in Ageratum and now in tomato strongly suggests Agerum may be an alternative host to these viruses and that ALCC MB is non host specific and may cause severe diseases when transmitted to other crops. Expand
Tomato leaf curl New Delhi virus: a widespread bipartite begomovirus in the territory of monopartite begomoviruses.
TLDR
An understanding of the capacity of ToLCNDV to infect a variety of hosts and spread across a broad and ecologically variable geographical range could illuminate the potential economic threats associated with similar begomoviral invasions. Expand
Ageratum conyzoides: a host to a unique begomovirus disease complex in Cameroon.
TLDR
The results suggest that the begomoviral-satellite complexes infecting A. conyzoides in Cameroon may be as complex or more so, to species and strains reported thus far from Asia. Expand
Diversity and interactions of begomoviruses and their associated DNA-satellites
TLDR
The results suggest that the diversity of begomoviruses and their associated DNA-satellites in Africa is much higher than previously thought, and that it may be similar to the diversity in Asia. Expand
Cotton leaf curl disease - an emerging threat to cotton production worldwide.
TLDR
Recent advances made in understanding the molecular biology of the components of the disease complex, their interactions with host plants, as well as efforts being made to control CLCuD are outlined. Expand
Molecular diversity of DNA-B component of east African cassava mosaic viruses in Tanzania
TLDR
A greater genetic diversity of begomoviruses DNA-B being more diverse than previously thought that could be linked to geographical area and high rate of recombination was showed. Expand

Evidence of local evolution of tomato-infecting begomovirus species in West Africa: characterization of tomato leaf curl Mali virus and tomato yellow leaf crumple virus from Mali
TLDR
Three predominant symptom phenotypes were observed: TYLC/ToLC (stunted upright growth and upcurled leaves with interveinal yellowing and vein purpling), yellow leaf crumple and broccoli or bonsai (severe stunting and distorted growth), and begomovirus infection in plants with each of these symptom phenotype and no evidence of phytoplasma infection. Expand
Roles and interactions of begomoviruses and satellite DNAs associated with okra leaf curl disease in Mali, West Africa.
TLDR
It is established that OLCD in Mali is caused by a complex of monopartite begomoviruses and a promiscuous betasatellite with an associated parasitic DNA1 satellite. Expand
Complete nucleotide sequence of chili leaf curl virus and its associated satellites naturally infecting potato in Pakistan
TLDR
The presence of a begomovirus was confirmed by Southern blot hybridization using cotton leaf curl Multan virus as a general probe for begomviruses and was thus an isolate of the Pakistan strain of ChiLCV. Expand
First Report and Molecular Characterization of DNA A of Three Distinct Begomoviruses Associated with Tomato Leaf Curl Disease in Ghana.
TLDR
To the authors' knowledge, this is the first report of molecular characterization of begomoviruses associated with tomato leaf curl disease in Ghana and of the presence of three distinct tomato begsomovirus species. Expand
A severe symptom phenotype in tomato in Mali is caused by a reassortant between a novel recombinant begomovirus (Tomato yellow leaf curl Mali virus) and a betasatellite.
TLDR
Results indicate that TYLCMLV causes tomato yellow leaf curl disease throughout West Africa, whereas TYLC MLV and CLCuGB represent a reassortant that causes the severe symptom phenotype in tomato. Expand
Diversity of DNA 1: a satellite-like molecule associated with monopartite begomovirus-DNA beta complexes.
TLDR
The analysis shows that DNA 1 components are associated with the majority of begomovirus-DNA beta complexes, being absent from only two of the complexes examined, both of which have their origins in Far East Asia. Expand
Exploiting chinks in the plant's armor: evolution and emergence of geminiviruses.
TLDR
The geminiviruses represent a family of DNA viruses that has circumvented these impediments to emerge as one of the most successful viral pathogens, causing severe economic losses to agricultural production worldwide. Expand
Detection of subgroup III geminivirus isolates in leaf extracts by degenerate primers and polymerase chain reaction
TLDR
The demonstrated exclusive specificity of the assay for subgroup III geminiviruses offers a highly simplified PCR-based assay that permits the detection of a geographically diverse collection of WFT geminIViruses infecting cultivated crops, ornamentals, and weed hosts with minimal sample preparation.

A protocol for the rapid isolation of full geminivirus genomes from dried plant tissue.
TLDR
This method should be extremely useful for the study of any circular DNA plant viruses with genome component lengths smaller than the maximum size amplifiable by RCA. Expand
