Assessment of the Current Status of Potyviruses in Watermelon and Pumpkin Crops in Spain: Epidemiological Impact of Cultivated Plants and Mixed Infections
The results suggest that the impaired distribution of MWMV in cucurbit crops may be due to the cultivated plant species, in addition to the high prevalence of WMV. Expand
Cucurbita pepo (Summer squash, Zucchini, Vegetable marrow)
Genome sequence analysis of two South African isolates of Moroccan watermelon mosaic virus infecting cucurbits
The full genome of two MWMV isolates infecting cucurbits in the province of KwaZulu-Natal, RSA, was compared with the genome of the Tunisian isolate, indicating close relationships between the RSA isolates. Expand
Occurrence of viruses infecting melon in Xinjiang of China and molecular characterization of Watermelon mosaic virus isolates
Cucurbit viruses have been associated with important economic losses in Xinjiang of China. Therefore, a comprehensive survey and sample collection was performed during the 2013 and 2014 growingExpand
Transmission of Moroccan watermelon mosaic virus (MWMV) by Aphids in Greece.
The competence of 22 species of the Greek aphid fauna to vector Moroccan watermelon mosaic virus (MWMV) is recorded to contribute to a better understanding of MWMV epidemiology. Expand
Incidence and phylogeny of viruses infecting cucurbit crops in KwaZulu-Natal, Republic of South Africa
Polerovirus isolates were identified as Pepo aphid-borne yellows virus (PABYV) based on the sequence similarity and phylogenetic analyses and will contribute towards the development of effective management strategies against viruses infecting cucurbits in KZN. Expand
Molecular Characterization of Begomoviruses Infecting Sauropus androgynus in Thailand
The results indicated that S. androgynus plants act as natural hosts as well as potential nurseries for genetic recombination between begomovirus species and strains. Expand
Melon RNA interference (RNAi) lines silenced for Cm-eIF4E show broad virus resistance.
Cm-eIF4E is an efficient target for the identification of new resistance alleles able to confer broad-spectrum virus resistance in melon. Expand
Non-persistently aphid-borne viruses infecting pumpkin and squash in Serbia and partial characterization of Zucchini yellow mosaic virus isolates
The presence of Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) in winter (Cucurbita maxima) and summer (C. pepo ‘Beogradska’) squash is revealed, the first report of TSWV natural occurrence on cucurbits in Serbia and on winter squash worldwide. Expand


Biological and Molecular Characterization of Moroccan watermelon mosaic virus and a Potyvirus Isolate from Eastern Sudan.
It is proposed that this isolate was isolated from a naturally infected snake cucumber plant with severe mosaic and leaf deformation symptoms be considered as a strain of MWMV, possibly an evolutionary intermediate between M WMV and PRSV, until more is known on the structure of thePRSV subgroup within the genus Potyvirus.

First Report of Moroccan Watermelon Mosaic Potyvirus in Zucchini in Italy.
Further spread of this virus in the Mediterranean area will create new problems for commercial cucurbit production and breeding, and for diagnosis. Expand
