Since the 1970s, several dsRNA viruses, including Radish yellow edge virus, Raphanus sativus virus 1, Raphanus sativus virus 2, and Raphanus sativus virus 3, have been identified and reported as infecting radish. In the present study, in conjunction with a survey of seed-borne viruses in cultivated Brassica and Raphanus using the dsRNA diagnostic method, we discovered 3 novel cryptoviruses that infect Brassica and Raphanus: Raphanus sativus partitivirus 1, which infects radish (Raphanus sativus… 

Abundance of Poleroviruses within Tasmanian Pea Crops and Surrounding Weeds, and the Genetic Diversity of TuYV Isolates Found

Phylogenetic inconsistency in the P0 and P3 ORFs supports the concept that recombination may have played a role in TuYV evolution in Tasmania, and substantial genetic diversity was revealed within the collection.

Complete genome sequence of a novel partitivirus from a wild brassicaceous plant, Arabidopsis halleri

The complete genome sequence of a putative novel partitivirus is reported, which consists of two RNA genome segments of 1912 and 1769 bp, which are predicted to encode a 585-amino-acid-long putative RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) and a 487- amino- acid- long putative capsid protein (CP) respectively.

First record of White clover cryptic virus-2 in New Zealand

White clover cryptic virus-2 is recorded for the first time in New Zealand in three commercial cultivars of white clover: Grasslands Huia, Grasslands Kopu II and Grasslands Sustain. An RT-PCR assay

Raphanus sativus (Radish)

This datasheet on Raphanus sativus covers Identity, Overview, Associated Diseases, Pests or Pathogens, Distribution, Hosts/Species Affected, Biology & Ecology, Uses, Management, Genetics and

Complete nucleotide sequence of a novel partitivirus from Brassica campestris L. ssp. chinensis

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) combined with adapter-ligation-mediated amplification allowed assembly of the full-length genome sequence of BCCV1, a novel partitivirus identified from Brassica campestris L. ssp.

A Survey on Plant Viruses in Natural Brassicaceae Communities Using RNA-Seq

It is indicated that distribution of viruses in natural plant populations are determined by the combinations of life histories of viruses and hosts, and revealed viral distribution in the natural plant communities improves knowledge on the ecology of plant viruses.

RNA-Seq reveals virus–virus and virus–plant interactions in nature

Revealing hidden plant–virus interactions in nature can enhance the understanding of biological interactions and may have agricultural applications.



Searching for a New Putative Cryptic Virus in Pinus sylvestris L

It is suggested that the 1.5 and 1.58 kbp dsRNAs in P. sylvestris may represent the genomic segments of a new plant cryptic virus, Cryptoviruses have not yet been reported to occur in Gymnosperms.

Complete nucleotide sequences of three dsRNA segments from Raphanus sativus-root cv. Yipinghong with leaf yellow edge symptoms

Results suggest that more than one partitivirus was co-infecting radish leaves and that the smaller of the two dsRNA bands is actually a doublet consisting of two co-migrating ds RNA segments.

Nucleotide sequence of the tripartite Fragaria chiloensis cryptic virus and presence of the virus in the Americas

Phylogenetic analysis showed that FCCV is related most closely to members of the fungi-infecting Partitivirus genus rather thanMembers of the plant-infected Alphacryptovirus, providing a possible insight into the evolution of cryptic viruses.

Detection of dsRNA in Particles of Vicia Cryptic Virus and in Vicia faba Tissues and Protoplasts

Isometric particles of vicia cryptic virus (VCV), purified from Vicia faba seedlings infected through seed, had a buoyant density in CsCl of 1.37 g/ml and dsRNA was readily detected in extracts from one leaflet (about 0.6 g).

Complete sequence of the RNA1 of an isolate of White clover cryptic virus 1, type species of the genus Alphacryptovirus

White clover cryptic virus 1 (WCCV1) is the type species of the genus Alphacryptovirus but the sequences of its two genome segments and their encoded proteins have not been published and the following paper reports the full sequence of RNA2.

A third cryptic virus in beet (Beta vulgaris)

Virus particles were purified from these plants and were shown to contain the two new dsRNA components, thus demonstrating the existence of a new beet cryptic virus, which the authors have called BCV3.

A viral double-stranded RNA up regulates the fungal virulence of Nectria radicicola.

Results strongly suggest that 6.0-kbp dsRNA up regulates fungal virulence in N. radicicola through signal-transduction pathways involving cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase andprotein kinase C.

Discovery of Novel dsRNA Viral Sequences by In Silico Cloning and Implications for Viral Diversity, Host Range and Evolution

Detailed phylogenetic analysis of these newly discovered virus-like sequences revealed that these dsRNA viruses may have co-evolved with respective host supergroups over a long evolutionary time while potential horizontal transmissions of viruses between different host super groups also is possible.
