A virus that commonly infects potatoes bears a striking resemblance to one of the key proteins implicated in Alzheimer's disease (AD), and researchers have used that to develop antibodies that may slow or prevent the onset of AD. Studies in mice have demonstrated that vaccinations with the amyloid beta protein (believed to be a major AD contributor) to produce A antibodies can slow disease progression and improve cognitive function, possibly by promoting the...

Potato virus Y (PVY) is a plant pathogenic virus of the family Potyviridae. It is one of the most important plant viruses affecting potatoes. 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...

Alfalfa mosaic virus, or AMV, is a worldwide phytopathogen that can cause necrosis and yellow mosaics on a variety of plant species. It is the only Alfamovirus of the Bromoviradae family. Weimer J.L. was the first to report AMV in Alfalfa, in 1931. Aphids, seeds, and pollen were the main transmitters of the virus. The virion has a coat protein but no envelope. AMV is a multipartite virus and is composed of 4 particles with a diameter of 18 nm. AMV's genetic material consists of 3 linear...

  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
