Proposal for a revised taxonomy of the family Filoviridae: classification, names of taxa and viruses, and virus abbreviations
The etymological derivation of individual names, their pronunciation, and their correct use are explained, and demarcation criteria for each taxon and virus are elaborate. Expand
Pathogen profile Beet poleroviruses : close friends or distant relatives ?
Taxonomy: There are three members of the genus Polerovirus (family Luteoviridae ) that induce yellowing of sugar beet: Beet mild yellowing virus (BMYV), Beet chlorosis virus (BChV) and Beet westernExpand
Biological and Molecular Characterization of an American Sugar Beet-Infecting Beet western yellows virus Isolate.
Results demonstrate that BWYV-USA is a distinct species in the Polerovirus genus, clarifying the nomenclature of this important group of viruses. Expand
Genome sequence and molecular characterization of Homalodisca coagulata virus-1, a novel virus discovered in the glassy-winged sharpshooter (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae).
Evidence demonstrating relatedness of these viruses regarding genome organization, amino acid sequence similarity, and putative replication strategy substantiate inclusion of HoCV-1 into this taxonomic position. Expand
Molecular diversity of the coat protein-encoding region of Barley yellow dwarf virus-PAV and Barley yellow dwarf virus-MAV from Latvia and Sweden
The sequence variability among PAV isolates was greater and phylogenetic analysis including isolates of a wide geographic origin detected two major clusters, of which both contained isolates from Latvia and Sweden. Expand
Genetic diversity and recombination between turnip yellows virus strains in Australia.
The hypothesis that TuYV and BrYV belong to the same species and that the phylogenetic topologies of ORF 0, 3a and 5 are incongruent and may not be informative for species demarcation is supported. Expand
Turkey adenovirus 3, a siadenovirus, uses sialic acid on N-linked glycoproteins as a cellular receptor.
It is concluded that terminal sialic acids attached to N-linked membrane glycoproteins on B cells are used for virus attachment and are essential for successful virus infection. Expand
Diversity of barley yellow dwarf-associated viruses in winter cereals of Southern Sweden
A phylogenetic analysis of isolates collected from plant material in southern Sweden indicated that Swedish and global BYDV-PAS isolates formed a well-supported group indicating that BYD vdW virus is a widespread virus. Expand
Molecular characterization of Turnip yellows virus: A new pathogen of mustards in Serbia
In 2018, a total of 58 mustard samples from two different localities in Serbia were collected and tested for the presence of Turnip yellow virus (TuYV) by DAS-ELTSA while all collected samples were negative for CaMV and TuMV. Expand


On the relative merits of italics, Latin and binomial nomenclature in virus taxonomy
classes like species or families cannot be seen or centrifuged. It certainly is not possible to centrifuge the species Tobacco mosaic virus, the genus Enterovirus or the family Picornaviridae. SomeExpand
