Mycoviruses (fungal viruses) are reviewed with emphasis on plant pathogenic fungi. Based on the presence of virus-like particles and unencapsidated dsRNAs, mycoviruses are common in all major fungal groups. Over 80 mycovirus species have been officially recognized from ten virus families, but a paucity of nucleic acid sequence data makes assignment of many reported mycoviruses difficult. Although most of the particle types recognized to date are isometric, a variety of morphologies have been… Expand
Mycoviruses and their Role in Biological Control of Plant Diseases
TLDR
Hypovirulence associated mycoviruses and killer yeast to control plant diseases is emerging as one of the latest biological tool. Expand
A COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW ON MYCOVIRUSES AS BIOLOGICAL CONTROL AGENT
TLDR
There is an increasing interest for use of mycoviruses as novel biocontrol agent as they reduce the virulence of their phytopathogeinc fungal hosts as well as better understanding of their assembly, function, and evolution have been done through their structural analyses. Expand
A Review Paper on Mycoviruses
Mycoviruses are very significant viruses, which are found to be infecting fungi. These Mycoviruses require the living cells of their hosts for replicate like the plant and animal viruses. The genomeExpand
Mycoviruses of an endophytic fungus can replicate in plant cells: evolutionary implications
TLDR
Time-course analysis of absolute RNA accumulation provided for the first time evidence that viruses of two species belonging to the Partitiviridae and Totiviraceae families, can replicate in plant cells without evidence of host adaptation, i.e, changes in their nucleotide sequence. Expand
Five Questions about Mycoviruses
TLDR
Although many myCoviruses and their host fungi have been identified, many mycovirus undoubtedly remain unknown. Expand
[Mycoviruses and virocontrol].
TLDR
The current status of mycovirus studies and virocontrol (biocontrol) of phytopathogenic fungi using viruses that infect them and reduce their virulence are discussed. Expand
[Cryphonectria parasitica as a host of fungal viruses: a tool useful to unravel the mycovirus world].
TLDR
The general properties of fungal viruses and advantages of the chestnut blight fungus as a mycovirus host are overview and two recent studies carried out using this fungal host are introduced. Expand
Insight into mycoviruses infecting Fusarium species.
TLDR
Proteome and transcriptome analysis have revealed that FgV1 infection of Fusarium causes changes in host transcriptional and translational machineries, suggesting the possibility that, as biological control agents, mycoviruses could be introduced into diverse species of fungal plant pathogens. Expand
Viruses accumulate in aging infection centers of a fungal forest pathogen
TLDR
The results suggest that co-infections by distantly related viral species are more stable than those between conspecific strains, and mutual exclusion may play a role in determining mycoviral communities. Expand
Phytopathogenic fungus hosts a plant virus: A naturally occurring cross-kingdom viral infection
TLDR
The discovery of a natural infection of the phytopathogenic fungus Rhizoctonia solani by a plant virus, cucumber mosaic virus (CMV), which is evidence of cross-kingdom virus transmission from the plant to fungus. Expand

New Developments in Fungal Virology
  • S. Ghabrial
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Advances in Virus Research

TLDR
Recent advances in the biochemical and molecular characterization of the genomes of fungal viruses and associated satellite dsRNAs, as they relate to the biological properties of these viruses and to their interactions with their hosts are the focus of this chapter. Expand
Origin, Adaptation and Evolutionary Pathways of Fungal Viruses
TLDR
The theory of a cellular self-replicating mRNA as the origin of totiviruses is attractive because of their apparent ancient origin, the close relationships among their RDRPs, genome simplicity and the ability to use host proteins efficiently. Expand
Dynamics of dsRNA mycoviruses in black Aspergillus populations.
TLDR
For a stable virus infection frequency in the black Aspergillus population, fitness costs and spontaneous loss should be balanced with new infections, like in killer virus systems in yeast and smut. Expand
A Reovirus of the Fungus Cryphonectria parasitica That Is Infectious as Particles and Related to the Coltivirus Genus of Animal Pathogens
TLDR
The characterization of a reovirus from Cryphonectria parasitica, the filamentous fungus that causes chestnut blight disease, represents the completion of Koch's postulates for a true dsRNA virus from a filamentous fungi and the description of a definitive fungal member of the family Reoviridae. Expand
Complexity of dsRNA Mycovirus Isolated from Fusarium graminearum
TLDR
There is genomic diversity of dsRNA mycoviruses that infect F. graminearum isolates and that impact of virus infection on host's morphology and virulence is determined by the interaction between dsRNAs and the fungal host, not by the mere presence of the ds RNAs. Expand

Double-Stranded RNA Mycovirus from Fusarium graminearum
TLDR
Results suggest that this dsRNA isolated from F. graminearum encodes traits for hypovirulence, similar to Cryphonectria hypovirus and Barley yellow mosaic virus. Expand
Characterization of debilitation-associated mycovirus infecting the plant-pathogenic fungus Sclerotinia sclerotiorum.
TLDR
Results suggest that the M dsRNA from strain Ep-1PN is derived from the genomic RNA of a positive-strand RNA virus, which is designated Sclerotinia sclerotiorum debilitation-associated RNA virus (SsDRV). Expand
Molecular aspects of plant virus transmission by olpidium and plasmodiophorid vectors.
TLDR
The genome structures of a large number of viruses transmitted by olpidium and plasmodiophorid vectors have been determined and some features of CNV/zoospore attachment are similar to poliovirus/host cell interactions, suggesting evolutionary conservation of functional features of plant and animal virus capsids.

Artificial Infection of Rosellinia necatrix with Purified Viral Particles of a Member of the Genus Mycoreovirus Reveals Its Uneven Distribution in Single Colonies.
TLDR
RnMYRV-3 was transmissible from transfected strains to their respective, virus-free counterparts via hyphal anastomosis, and the level of virus accumulation varied among virus-transfected subcultures and within its single colonies, which may be ascribed to uneven viral distribution in single colonies and the difficulty in viral transmission to virus- free hyphae.
