Summary.A filamentous virus, with particles 600–650 nm long, was purified from Narcissus pseudonarcissus (daffodil) in Hangzhou and an antiserum prepared. After mechanical inoculation, the virus could be detected serologically in Narcissus species but not in some commonly used virus indicators. Infection was symptomless. The complete sequence of the genomic RNA (8281 nt) showed six predicted ORFs typical of carlaviruses. Pairwise comparisons of gene sequences and phylogenetic analysis… Expand
Complete nucleotide sequence of a Japanese isolate of Chrysanthemum virus B (genus Carlavirus)
Multiple alignment and phylogenetic analyses indicated that the phylogenetic relationship among members of the genus Carlavirus is very diverse, with phlox virus S being the closest relative of CVB. Expand
Complete genome sequences of seven carlavirus and potyvirus isolates from Narcissus and Hippeastrum plants in Australia, and proposals to clarify their naming
Proposals are made to clarify the current confusion surrounding the naming of some of the potyviruses narcissus degeneration virus, narcissus yellow stripe virus and Vallota speciosa virus from narcissus plants. Expand
Evolutionary rates and genetic diversities of mixed potyviruses in Narcissus.
The oldness of TMRCAs of the viruses correlated well with the greatness of nucleotide diversities, and the most recent common ancestors (TMRCAs) varied between virus species; NYSV and CyEVA were the oldest whereas NDV was the youngest. Expand
Analysis of the triple gene block sequence in an important melon pathogen, Melon yellowing-associated virus
The triple gene block genomic region including the 3′-end region of an isolate of MYaV was elucidated and the presence of two heptanucleotide-motifs for subgenomic RNA synthesis was confirmed in this sequence. Expand
Complete nucleotide sequence and genome organization of butterbur mosaic virus
The results demonstrate that ButMV was a distinct species of the genus Carlavirus and is most closely related to coleus vein necrosis virus and carnation latent virus, respectively. Expand


Complete nucleotide sequence and affinities of the genomic RNA of Narcissus common latent virus (genus Carlavirus)
The complete sequence of an isolate of Narcissus common latent virus from Zhangzhou city, Fujian, China was determined from amplified fragments of purified viral RNA, and its relationships were confirmed by a phylogenetic analysis using a composite nucleotide alignment of all the open reading frames.

Molecular Characterization of Carla- and Potyviruses from Narcissus in China
Carlavirus fragments from both Chinese sites seemed to be of the same virus, which was most closely related in phylogenetic analyses to Potato virus M, Aconitum latent virus and Hop latent virus, most probably a new member of the genus Carlavirus. Expand
The new plant virus family Flexiviridae and assessment of molecular criteria for species demarcation
The new plant virus family Flexiviridae is described. The family is named because its members have flexuous virions and it includes the existing genera Allexivirus, Capillovirus, Carlavirus,Expand
Characterisation of some carla- and potyviruses from bulb crops in China
Summary. Conserved carla- and potyvirus primers were used in RT-PCR to amplify virus fragments from garlic and other bulb crops in China and the fragments were subsequently sequenced and compared inExpand
Occurrence and sequences of Lily mottle virus and Lily symptomless virus in plants grown from imported bulbs in Zhejiang province, China
Two viruses, Lily mottle virus and Lily symptomless virus were detected, purified and completely sequenced from a mixed infection in a plant raised from bulbs imported from the Netherlands, the first report of complete sequences for LMoV and LSV. Expand
Serological relationships and genome homologies among geminiviruses
In immunosorbent electron microscopy (ISEM) tests, strong relationships were detected between five whitefly-transmitted geminiviruses: African cassava mosaic, bean golden mosaic, euphorbia mosaic, squash leaf curl and tomato golden mosaic and among five leafhoppers, beet curly top and tobacco yellow dwarf viruses were distantly related.

Diverse suppressors of RNA silencing enhance agroinfection by a viral replicon.
The minireplicon agroinfection assay was used to identify a new suppressor, a homolog of BYV p21, derived from Grapevine leafroll-associated virus-2, and preliminary data on the suppressor activity of the p10 protein are reported, showing that this protein belongs to a family of Zn-ribbon-containing proteins encoded by filamentous plant RNA viruses from three genera.

RNA helicase activity of the plant virus movement proteins encoded by the first gene of the triple gene block.
A recombinant His-tagged form of TGBp1 of two hordeiviruses and potato virus X, a potexvirus, produced in Escherichia coli had unwinding activity on a partially duplexed RNA, but not DNA substrate. Expand
Conservation of the putative methyltransferase domain: a hallmark of the 'Sindbis-like' supergroup of positive-strand RNA viruses.
It is hypothesized that this domain may be involved in methylation of the cap during viral RNA maturation, and the motifs typical of the putative methyltransferase domain are universal within the Sindbis-like supergroup of positive-strand RNA viruses. Expand
Triple gene block: modular design of a multifunctional machine for plant virus movement.
The structure, phylogeny and expression of TGB proteins, their roles in virus cell-to-cell movement and potential influence on host antiviral defences are described. Expand
