Infection results in various symptoms depending on the strain. Production loss is the most mild of the symptoms and "˜potato tuber necrotic ringspot disease' is the worst. Ringspot renders potatoes unmarketable and can therefore result in a major loss of income. Aphid vectors transmit PVY but it can also remain dormant in seed potatoes. The South...

These names come from the fact that some species as adults emit flashes of light to attract mates, using special light-emitting organs in the abdomen. The enzyme luciferase acts on luciferin to stimulate light emission. This reaction is of scientific interest, and genes coding for these substances have been spliced into many different organisms. Many species, especially in the genus Photinus,...
