I17F and R are subgroup I and II cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) strains, respectively. Whereas I17F induces severe symptoms on all hosts so far tested, R induces generally mild symptoms, except on Nicotiana glutinosa, on which it causes leaf blistering and severe stunting. Pseudorecombinants and recombinants, based on RNAs 1 and 2 from R-CMV, were created by adding either I17F RNA 3 or one of two chimeric RNAs created by exchanging approximate halves of RNA 3 of the two strains. The viruses… CONTINUE READING
