impact of vat resistance in melon on viral epidemics and genetic structure of virus populations.cultivar choice is at the heart of cropping systems and resistant cultivars should be at the heart of disease management strategies whenever available. they are the easiest, most efficient and environmentally friendly way of combating viral diseases at the farm level. among the melon genetic resources, vat is a unique gene conferring resistance to both the melon aphid aphis gossypii and the viruses it carries. the 'virus side' of this pleiotropic phenotype is seldom regarded as an asset for viru ...201728587865
infectious clones of tomato leaf curl palampur virus with a defective dna b and their pseudo-recombination with tomato leaf curl new delhi virus.abstract: background: tomato leaf curl palampur virus (tolcpmv) is a bipartite begomovirus which has been reported from india and iran but infectious clones have not been obtained. we have previously shown the association of zucchini yellow mosaic virus (zymv), a potyvirus, with severe leaf curl disease of muskmelon in pakistan. however, the severity of symptoms in the field and yield losses led us to believe that some other agent, such as a begomovirus, could be associated with the disease. res ...201121496256
generation of transgenic oriental melon resistant to zucchini yellow mosaic virus by an improved cotyledon-cutting method.production of melon (cucumis melo l.) worldwide is often limited by the potyvirus, zucchini yellow mosaic virus (zymv). in order to engineer melon lines resistant to zymv, a construct containing the translatable coat protein (cp) sequence coupled with the 3' non-translatable region of the virus was generated and used to transform an elite cultivar of oriental melon (silver light) mediated by agrobacterium using an improved cotyledon-cutting method. removal of 1-mm portion from the proximal end o ...200919479262
occurrence and distribution of ten viruses infecting cucurbit plants in guilan province, iran.during the 2006 and 2007 growing seasons, a systematic survey was conducted in open-field of melon (cucumis melo l.), cucumber (c. sativus l.), squash (cucurbita sp.), and watermelon (citrulus lanatus l.) crops in 16 major cucurbit-growing areas of guilan province in iran. symptomatic leaf samples were collected and screened by double-antibody sandwich elisa (das-elisa) or rt-pcr to detect zucchini yellow mosaic virus (zymv), watermelon mosaic virus (wmv), cucurbit aphid-borne yellows virus (cab ...200818564898
construction of a fosmid library of cucumber (cucumis sativus) and comparative analyses of the eif4e and eif(iso)4e regions from cucumber and melon (cucumis melo).a fosmid library of cucumber was synthesized as an unrestricted resource for researchers and used for comparative sequence analyses to assess synteny between the cucumber and melon genomes, both members of the genus cucumis and the two most economically important plants in the family cucurbitaceae. end sequencing of random fosmids produced over 680 kilobases of cucumber genomic sequence, of which 25% was similar to ribosomal dnas, 25% to satellite sequences, 20% to coding regions in other plants ...200818273646
comparative mapping of zymv resistances in cucumber (cucumis sativus l.) and melon (cucumis melo l.).zucchini yellow mosaic virus (zymv) routinely causes significant losses in cucumber ( cucumis sativus l.) and melon ( cucumis melo l.). zymv resistances from the cucumber population 'tmg1' and the melon plant introduction (pi) 414723 show different modes of inheritance and their genetic relationships are unknown. we used molecular markers tightly linked to zymv resistances from cucumber and melon for comparative mapping. a 5-kb genomic region (ycz-5) cosegregating with the zym locus of cucumber ...200415340688
genetic engineering of potyvirus resistance using constructs derived from the zucchini yellow mosaic virus coat protein gene.three versions of the zucchini yellow mosaic virus (zymv) coat protein gene were engineered for expression in plants: the full-length coat protein sequence, the conserved core portion of the gene, and an antisense version. these constructs were introduced into muskmelon (cucumis melo) and tobacco plants (nicotiana tabacum) via agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation; gene expression was verified by northern and western analysis. transgenic r0 and r1 muskmelon plants expressing the full ...19938324251
melon rna interference (rnai) lines silenced for cm-eif4e show broad virus resistance.efficient and sustainable control of plant viruses may be achieved using genetically resistant crop varieties, although resistance genes are not always available for each pathogen; in this regard, the identification of new genes that are able to confer broad-spectrum and durable resistance is highly desirable. recently, the cloning and characterization of recessive resistance genes from different plant species has pointed towards eukaryotic translation initiation factors (eif) of the 4e family a ...201222309030
