A virus was isolated from squirting cucumber (Ecballium elaterium L.) collected in France (Alpes de Haute Provence). After mechanical inoculation, eight species belonging to the Cucurbitaceae were found susceptible to this virus with systemic symptoms of mosaic, chlorotic spots, and fruit deformations. The French ZYFV (ZYFV-Fr) isolate differed from the type strain in its ability to infect some differential host plants. Elongated flexuous particles with a modal length of 752 nm were observed by… Expand
Zucchini Yellow Fleck Virus is an Emergent Virus on Melon in Sicily (Italy)
This is the first report of ZYFV occurring on melon in Italy, and two isolates from different locations were sequenced and shown to be approximately 85% identical to the published sequences of isolates previously identified in Italy and France. Expand
Molecular evidence that zucchini yellow fleck virus is a distinct and variable potyvirus related to papaya ringspot virus and Moroccan watermelon mosaic virus
The sequence of the 3′ part of the genome – encompassing the CP coding region – of two ZYFV strains originating from Italy and France was obtained and compared with other potyviruses, indicating that ZYfV belongs to a distinct potyvirus species, related to but different from PRSV and MWMV. Expand
Increase in Cucurbit Aphid–Borne Yellows Virus Concentration by Co–infection with Sap–transmissible Viruses does not Increase its Aphid Transmissibility
The cucurbit aphid–borne yellows virus (CABYV) is a new tentative member of the luteovirus group which is transmitted persistently by Myzus persicae and Aphis gossypii and transmission experiments were conducted to check whether increased virus multiplication could either enhance transmission rates or modify the mode of CAByV acquisition by aphids.

Aphid Transmission of Potyvirus: The Largest Plant-Infecting RNA Virus Genus
How the fundamental understanding of these multi-partite interactions through multi-omics approaches is already contributing to, and can have future implications for, devising effective and sustainable management strategies against aphid-transmitted potyviruses to global agriculture is examined.

Ecballium elaterium (Squirting cucumber)


Serological and biological variability of virus isolates related to strains of papaya ringspot virus.
(...) It appeared that the extent of the variability observed among the PRSV isolates enlarges those already known for PRSV and for WMV-M. Moreover, the similarities between these two groups suggestExpand
Serological and biological variability among papaya ringspot virus type-W isolates in Florida
Six distinct monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) were obtained to the viral structural protein of a Florida isolate of papaya ringspot virus type-W (PRSV-W). These MAbs were distinguished by theirExpand
Biological variability of potyviruses, an example: zucchini yellow mosaic virus.
A brief account of this potential for biological variability in zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV) is presented and illustrated by some aspects of the biological variability of the virus. Expand
Characteristics of the microplate method of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the detection of plant viruses.
The method enabled the highly sensitive detection of a number of morphologically different viruses in purified preparations and in unclarified extracts of herbaceous hosts and of infected crop plants. Expand
