Zucchini Yellow Mosaic Virus (ZYMV) is an aphid-borne potyvirus and is regarded as a major pathogen of cucurbits. It affects pumpkins, squashes, vegetable marrows, courgettes, melons, watermelons, cucumbers, gherkins, and various gourds especially zucchinis. The effects are severe leaf mosaic, yellowing and eventually the leaves show "shoestring" symptoms. Fruits can become stunted, twisted and deformed by raised protuberances, which make them unmarketable. Infection may be spread through...
Strawberry vein banding virus (SVBV) is a plant pathogenic virus and a member of the family Caulimoviridae. It was first described by Frazier after differential aphid transmission to susceptible wild strawberries. He identified suitable virus indicators and demonstrated virus transmission by various aphids, dodder, and grafting. He also established the inability of the virus to transmit via sap. Stenger purified and cloned the SVBV genome. Due to the limited techniques of the time he was...
Rubella virus is the cause of congenital rubella syndrome when infection occurs during the first weeks of pregnancy. Humans are the only known host of this virus. It is the only member of the genus of Rubivirus and belongs to the family of Togaviridae. Members of the Togaviridae family typically have a genome of single-stranded RNA of positive polarity which is enclosed by an icosahedral capsid. This genome has a length of about 9,757 nucleotides and encodes for two non-structural as well...
West Nile virus (WNV) is a virus of the family Flaviviridae. It is part of the Japanese encephalitis antigenic complex of viruses and is found in both tropical and temperate regions. It primarily infects birds but can infect humans, horses, dogs, cats, bats, and other mammals. Humans are generally infected through the bites of mosquitoes and about 90% of West Nile Virus infections are without symptoms. The virion is 45-60 nm and covered with a relatively smooth protein surface. It is...
Vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) is a virus in the family Rhabdoviridae. Rabies is in the same family. VSV infects insects and animals and is important to farmers in certain regions of the world where it can infect cattle. It is a common laboratory virus used for studying the Rhabdoviridae family and viral evolution. It is the prototypic member of the vesiculovirus genera of the Rhabdovirus family. The genome is a single molecule of negative-sense RNA that encodes five major proteins.
