During a survey in June 2011, severe leaf yellow mosaic disease was observed on about 45 % plants of Jatrophacurcas growing in the Katerniaghat wildlife sanctuary in India. An association of a begomovirus with disease was detected in 15 out of 20 samples by PCR using begomovirus genus-specific primers and total DNA isolated from symptomatic leaf samples. For identification of the begomovirus, the complete genome was amplified using a Phi-29 DNA-polymerase-based rolling-circle amplification kit… 
Detection of begomovirus in plants of Jatropha curcas L., in Chiapas, Mexico.
This work reports the first report of begomovirus infecting Jatropha curcas L. plants in southern Mexico, representing the most promising non-edible plant for the biofuel industry in the world.
Detection and molecular characterization of Begomovirus infecting some common weeds in West Bengal
In this study symptomatic weeds, such as Croton sparsiflorus, Acalypha indica, Sida rhombifolia, and Ageratum conyzoides, were collected and detected through PCR by using universal and begomovirus specific primers, and revealed that weed species may play a significant role in harboring various begsomoviruses and mayplay a crucial role in recombination with different begomviruses.
The Current Status of New Emerging Begomovirus Diseases on JatrophaSpecies from India
The status of the work used and the results obtained in methodology for identification and characterization of begomovirus isolates associated with symptomatology like mosaic disease of Jatropha species grown in India, are presented in this review article.
Cnidoscolus mild mosaic virus: a new bipartite begomovirus isolated from Cnidoscolus urens in Brazil.
A novel bipartite begomovirus infecting Cnidoscolus urens (Euphorbiaceae) from Pernambuco State, Brazil, has been characterized. The complete DNA-A (2657 nt) and DNA-B (2622 nt) components of the
Distribution of Geminivirus in the Indian Subcontinent
This chapter reviews the major geminiviral crop infections in the Indian subcontinent.
In vitro study of virus new strain JLCuGV infected nodal explants and production of planting material through meristem culture from virus-infected Jatropha curcas plants
Jatropha curcas is an important biodiesel plant as its seed contains 27–40% oil. The virus infection causes adverse effects on plant growth, and yield. The present study was carried out to develop
Genome complexity of begomovirus disease and a concern in agro-economic loss
  • Journal of Applied Biology & Biotechnology
  • 2019
Significant agro-economic loss becomes a foremost concern in terms of productivity and feeding the expanding population. Among all plant pathogens, begomovirus is also one of the contagions which
Functional Scanning of Apple Geminivirus Proteins as Symptom Determinants and Suppressors of Posttranscriptional Gene Silencing
Functional scanning of apple geminivirus proteins as symptom determinants and suppressors of posttranscriptional gene silencing (PTGS) indicated that AGV V2 is an important virulence factor localized to the nucleus and cytoplasm that suppresses PTGS and induces severe symptoms of crinkling and necrosis.


Molecular identification of a new begomovirus associated with leaf crumple disease of Jatropha curcas L. in India
The begomovirus isolates were identified as the members of a new Begomovirus species and provisionally designated as Jatropha leaf crumple India virus (JLCrIV).
Biological Characterization and Complete Genome Sequence of a Possible Strain of Indian cassava mosaic virus from Jatropha curcas in India
The virus isolate identified as a possible strain of Indian cassava mosaic virus, and its name Jatropha mosaic India virus (JMIV) is proposed because of the guidelines of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses.
Distinct begomoviruses closely related to cassava mosaic viruses cause Indian Jatropha mosaic disease.
Results further confirm that JMD in India was caused by begomoviruses and they were most closely related to cassava mosaic viruses from the Indian sub-continent.
Diversity and distribution of begomoviruses infecting tomato in India
Two new begomovirus species, papaya leaf curl virus and Pepper leaf curl Bangladesh virus sequences were detected in tomato, and all four known TLCBs appeared to be present throughout India.
Molecular identification of a new begomovirus associated with mosaic disease of Jatropha curcas L. in Nigeria
Pairwise comparisons of DNA-A sequences showed that JMNV had maximum nucleotide sequence identity (72%) with a strain of tomato yellow leaf curl virus, which may represent a significant threat to a promising bioenergy crop.
Molecular Characterization of a Strain of Squash leaf curl China Virus from North India

Biotechnological approaches to determine the impact of viruses in the energy crop plant Jatropha curcas
Cassava geminiviruses occurring in Jatropha might be spread wider than anticipated, and if not taken care of, this virus infection might negatively impact large scale plantations for biofuel production.
A new strain of Indian cassava mosaic virus causes a mosaic disease in the biodiesel crop Jatropha curcas

Use of degenerate primers in the polymerase chain reaction to detect whitefly-transmitted geminiviruses
Degenerate PCR primers were designed to anneal to highly conserved nucleotide sequences identified in the genomes of 10 whitefly-transmitted geminiviruses, and tested for their effectiveness in the amplification of viral DNA fragments from the DNA-A and/or DNA-B components of 15 previously uncharacterized geminIViruses.
