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 growing seasons from the major melon-growing locations in Xinjiang which is the largest area for melon production in China. Samples were analyzed using reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) to detect Watermelon mosaic virus (WMV), Zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV), Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV… Expand

Molecular variability of watermelon mosaic virus isolates from Argentina
The fixation index value between the WMV isolates from the different provinces in Argentina was lower than 0.33, indicating a relatively frequent gene flow between provinces, and the predominant evolutionary pressure was negative with a mean dN/dS’< 1, suggesting a slow replacement fixation rate.

Screening for Resistance to Zucchini yellow mosaic virus in the Watermelon Germplasm
The objectives of this study were to screen the U.S. Department of Agriculture watermelon germplasm collection for ZYMV resistance and to verify the disease rating for the most resistant and most susceptible accessions. Expand


Current status of cucurbit viruses in Venezuela and characterization of Venezuelan isolates of Zucchini yellow mosaic virus
Resistance to ZYMV in cucumber appears potentially durable, whereas resistance or tolerance in zucchini and melon may be easily overcome. Expand
Distribution of Viruses Infecting Cucurbit Crops and Isolation of Potential New Virus-Like Sequences from Weeds in Oklahoma.
Results showed the highest incidence for PRSV (51%), followed by WMV-2 (14%) and ZYMV (10%) among the collected samples, and some weed species contained possible new viruses when analyzed by random RT-PCR, followed by cloning, sequencing, and BLAST analysis with sequences in GenBank. Expand
Cucurbit aphid-borne yellows virus Is Prevalent in Field-Grown Cucurbit Crops of Southeastern Spain.
The high incidence of CABYV in single and multiple infections suggests that this virus may well become an important threat for cucurbit crops in the region. Expand
Identification, distribution and incidence of viruses in field-grown cucurbit crops of Iran
The high frequency of CABYV, WMV and ZYMV in the samples assayed on all four cucurbit crops and in all areas surveyed, as well as the detection of Watermelon chlorotic stunt virus (WmCSV) and Cucumber vein yellowing virus (CVYV) in northern and southern Iran, suggest that these viruses represent a potential threat to cucurbits crops in Iran.

Occurrence, Distribution, and Relative Incidence of Seven Viruses Infecting Greenhouse-Grown Cucurbits in Iran.
Of 16 plant species from 14 genera, growing in or around greenhouse facilities, 6 were found infected with ZYMV, TSWV, WMV-2, and CMV and may act as reservoirs of the viruses. 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
Status of tobacco viruses in Serbia and molecular characterization of tomato spotted wilt virus isolates.
In a four-year survey to determine the presence and distribution of viruses in tobacco crops at 17 localities of the Vojvodina Province and Central Serbia, 380 samples were collected and analyzed by DAS-ELISA, a joint clustering of Serbian, Bulgarian and Montenegrin TSWV isolates was revealed.

Identification and Molecular Characterization of Viruses Infecting Cucurbits in Pakistan
Cucurbits are grown throughout the North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan as summer and winter crops. Plants having mosaic, mottling, chlorosis and leaf distortion symptoms were frequently found inExpand
Occurrence, Distribution, and Relative Incidence of Mosaic Viruses Infecting Field-Grown Melon in Spain.
The main areas for field-grown melon production in Spain were surveyed for the occurrence and relative incidence of cucumber mosaic virus, papaya ringspot virus-watermelon strain, watermelon mosaic virus-2, and zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV) during the growing seasons of 1995 and 1996. Expand
Synergy between cucumber mosaic virus and zucchini yellow mosaic virus on Cucurbitaceae hosts tested by real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction.
Generally, the accumulation levels of CMV-Fny ORFs in the co-infection were higher than those in the single infection, whereas the accumulation of ZYMV-SD CP ORF showed a reverse result. Expand
