non-synonymous single nucleotide polymorphisms in the watermelon eif4e gene are closely associated with resistance to zucchini yellow mosaic virus.zucchini yellow mosaic virus (zymv) is one of the most economically important potyviruses infecting cucurbit crops worldwide. using a candidate gene approach, we cloned and sequenced eif4e and eif(iso)4e gene segments in watermelon. analysis of the nucleotide sequences between the zymv-resistant watermelon plant introduction pi 595203 (citrullus lanatus var. lanatus) and the zymv-susceptible watermelon cultivar 'new hampshire midget' ('nhm') showed the presence of single nucleotide polymorphisms ...200919820912
inheritance of resistance to zucchini yellow mosaic virus and watermelon mosaic virus in watermelon.high resistance to zucchini yellow mosaic virus-china strain (zymv-ch) and moderate resistance to watermelon mosaic virus (wmv) were found in a selection of pi 595203 (citrullus lanatus var. lanatus), an egusi type originally collected in nigeria. mixed inoculations showed primarily that these two viruses have no cross-protection. this fact may explain the high frequency of mixed infection often observed in commercial fields. when plants were inoculated with a mixture of the two viruses, the fre ...200415475395
