 The genomic nucleotide sequences of the cloned agroinfectious genomes of three South African mastreviruses obtained from Zea mays, a Setaria sp., and Panicum maximum (designated MSV-Kom, MSV-Set, and PanSV-Kar respectively), were determined. Additionally, their relative infectivities and virulence were analysed in a range of differentially susceptible wheat, maize, and barley genotypes. MSV-Kom produced moderate to severe streak symptoms in all maize genotypes tested, but only moderate to very… CONTINUE READING
