  • Pumpkin (Cucurbita moschata) samples showing yellow vein mosaic disease in Varanasi region were identified with begomovirus infection using PCR amplification. A sequencing analysis of the full genome revealed that it is a strain of Tomato leaf curl Palampur virus (GenBank ID. FJ931537). Phytochemical composition and antioxidative enzyme levels were compared in infected and healthy plants. The study revealed that the amount of total protein declined in the infected leaves but elevated up to 135… CONTINUE READING
