two dicot-infecting mastreviruses (family geminiviridae) occur in pakistan.most mastreviruses (family geminiviridae) infect monocotyledonous hosts and are transmitted by leafhopper vectors. only two mastrevirus species, tobacco yellow dwarf virus from australia and bean yellow dwarf virus (beydv) from south africa, have been identified whose members infect dicotyledonous plants. we have identified two distinct mastreviruses in chickpea stunt disease (csd)-affected chickpea originating from pakistan. the first is an isolate of beydv, previously only known to occur in so ...200818566736
two novel mastreviruses from chickpea (cicer arietinum) in australia.two novel mastreviruses (genus mastrevirus; family geminiviridae), with proposed names chickpea chlorosis virus (cpcv) and chickpea redleaf virus, are described from chickpea (cicer arietinum) from eastern australia. the viruses have genomes of 2,582 and 2,605 nucleotides, respectively, and share similar features and organisation with typical dicot-infecting mastreviruses. two distinct strains of cpcv were suggested by phylogenetic analysis. additionally, a partial mastrevirus rep sequence from ...201020734091
analysis of the sequence of a dicot-infecting mastrevirus (family geminiviridae) originating from syria.chickpea stunt disease (csd) across southern asia, the middle east and north africa is caused by a number of viruses that include single-stranded dna viruses of the genus mastrevirus (family geminiviridae). despite the importance of csd in reducing chickpea and lentil production, until recently little was known of the nature of the pathogens causing the disease. sequence characterisation of virus isolates from sudan and pakistan showed the viruses concerned to potentially be new mastrevirus spec ...201121340511
rna interference-based resistance against a legume mastrevirus.rna interference (rnai) is a homology-dependant gene silencing mechanism and has been widely used to engineer resistance in plants against rna viruses. however, its usefulness in delivering resistance against plant dna viruses belonging to family geminiviridae is still being debated. although the rnai approach has been shown, using a transient assay, to be useful in countering monocotyledonous plant-infecting geminiviruses of the genus mastrevirus, it has yet to be investigated as a means of del ...201122047503
