Kerlan, B. Moury, in Encyclopedia of Virology (Third Edition), Brief Description and Significance. Potato virus Y (PVY) was first recognized in as an aphid-transmitted member within a group of viruses associated with potato degeneration, a disorder known since the eighteenth century.

PVY is the type species of the genus Potyvirus, one of the six genera in the family Potyviridae. This increase in insect vectors and virus disease incidence, combined with the fact that virus-tested seed systems are weak or entirely absent, explains why potato virus diseases are of particular importance in the developing world and estimated to account for 50% or more of the potential total yield being lost (Harahagazwe et al.

In Cited by: 5. Because of their importance, potato viruses have also long been important subjects for research; much is thus now known about their intrinsic biological and physico-chemical properties, genomes, gene functions, virus-vector relationships (including specific sites of interaction between viral coat protein and the vector) and their potential as.

efforts have been made to control virus diseases by eliminating them from clonal (seed tubers) and seed-propagated stocks.

The effectiveness of these procedures relies on appropriate identification of the causal viruses and the development of accurate, sensitive and low-cost virus detection technology. Some characteristics of the potato multiplication Vegetative reproduction: ⇒Degeneration by infection of different pests (viruses, bacteria, fungi,) ⇒ The propagation material needs to be regularly replaced: by injection at the top of the chain of very high quality material (free of diseases infections).

Abstract. This chapter highlights the host-encoded miRNAs and their mRNA targets in response to viral infection in a susceptible plant. A common set of miRNAs, mainly those related to plant development or described as responsive to different biotic and abiotic stresses, was summarized.

miR was up-regulated by virus infection in a plant- and virus-independent manner. When serological testing for leptospirosis was positive for some patients, Walter Mannheim, a bacteriologist in Marburg, tried to isolate leptospirae.

On 22 Augusthe inoculated 6 guinea pigs with 2-mL specimens of citrated blood, obtained from 3 patients on day 6 after onset of disease (specimens from each patient were given to 2 of the.

Virology is a field within microbiology that encom- passes the study of viruses and the diseases they cause. In the laboratory, viruses have served as useful tools to better understand cellular mechanisms.

The purpose of this lesson is to provide a general overview of laboratory techniques used in the identification and study of viruses.

(A) Development of stem rot disease in potato plants infected with virus-free (dsF) and virus-infected R. solani strains. (Insets) Close-up views of the inoculated stems. (Magnification: 3×.) Plants were photographed at 12 dai.

(B) Detection of CMV RNA3 accumulation in uppermost leaves of potato plants by RT-PCR. Publicaciones de la Organización Mundial de la Salud When autocomplete results are available use up and down arrows to review and enter to select. The viruses include potato leafroll virus, potato viruses Y, X, A, S, M, and alfalfa mosaic virus, with the first three being the most important.

Major Potato Viruses Potato leafroll virus (PLRV) causes an important disease of potatoes affectine the auantitv and quality of production and may cause a crop to be ineligible for certification. Lipsitch suggests that, rather than breed the new mammal-transmissible viruses, scientists just use pieces of the H5N1 strain for their research or work on ancestors of the virus.

Virology is the study of viruses – submicroscopic, parasitic particles of genetic material contained in a protein coat – and virus-like agents. It focuses on the following aspects of viruses: their structure, classification and evolution, their ways to infect and exploit host cells for reproduction, their interaction with host organism physiology and immunity, the diseases they cause, the.

Plant pathology (also phytopathology) is the scientific study of diseases in plants caused by pathogens (infectious organisms) and environmental conditions (physiological factors).

Organisms that cause infectious disease include fungi, oomycetes, bacteria, viruses, viroids, virus-like organisms, phytoplasmas, protozoa, nematodes and parasitic included are ectoparasites like insects. Start studying Microbiology chapter 13 study module and hw.

The disease process occurs gradually over a long period. In this book, the authors highlight the achievements in the study of animal and human adenoviruses, chemotherapy of adenovirus infections, and the development in adenoviral vector-based vaccines and gene therapy.

This book will be useful not only for researchers but also in solving specific medical problems. Author(s): Yulia A. Desheva. Electron Microscopy: It detects virus particles, which are further characterized by their size and morphology.

Serological procedure for the laboratory diagnosis of Viruses. Different Serological methods that can be used for viral infection diagnosis. A rise in antibody titre to the virus can be used to diagnose viral infection.

A serum sample. Potato Virus X Potato virus X is a disease caused by potato virus X (PVX). This virus can affect potato and tomato. It is the most widespread of potato viruses and can cause reduced yields, even if the plants appear healthy.

This virus is transmitted by planting infected tubers. Symptoms. Often there are no symptoms present on plants infected. Live vaccines are derived from “wild,” or disease-causing, viruses or bacteria.

These wild viruses or bacteria are attenuated, or weakened, in a laboratory, usually by repeated culturing. For example, the measles virus used as a vaccine today was isolated from a child with measles disease in Almost 10 years of serial passage using tissue.

The aim of this study was to provide an understanding of A total of 32 sweet potato farmers fields were examined for sweet potato virus-like disease symptoms in two districts of the Ruvuma region (Figure 1), Mbinga (20 fields) and Songea (12 fields).

Also to parts and used for serological testing of sweet potato viruses with. Many people wonder just how scientists know that the cause of SARS is a virus and, more importantly, this particular virus. Public health scientists verified that a common virus-- a coronavirus.

This goal is made even more challenging because of crop loss to diseases. Bacterial and fungal pathogens reduce crop yields by about 15% and viruses reduce yields by 3% (Oerke and Dehne, ). For some crops, such as potatoes, the loss caused by microbial infection is estimated to be as high as 30% (Oerke and Dehne, ).

As an alternative to. Some examples of retroviruses are hepatitis viruses and HIV. When these viruses enter a host cell, they must first convert their RNA into DNA. This process, called reverse transcription, enables the virus to inject its genetic material into the host cell and use the host's biochemical machinery, similar to a DNA virus.

The body where a virus goes to live is called its host. Depending on the factors such as the type of germs, the kind of surface they are on and the environment, some viruses can survive longer than 24 hours, while some for minutes. Viruses cause diseases like measles, chickenpox, and flu.

Fungi: Fungi are plant-like organisms. genome: The complete genetic information (either DNA or, in some viruses, RNA) of an organism, typically expressed in the number of basepairs. Replication of Viruses The genetic material within virus particles and the method by which the material is replicated vary considerably between different types of viruses.

The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station Huntington Street New Haven, CT Phone Number: () Toll-Free: Fax: () Progress 10/01/10 to 09/30/11 Outputs Progress Report Objectives (from AD) 1) Identify how the genetic diversity of PLRV and PVY affect virus movement within and among plant hosts.

2) Develop improved methods to diagnose and manage the range of genetic variants of PVY known to affect the potato crop.

Approach (from AD) The potato industry is plagued by virus diseases; the most. Testing of this subculture, designated 17D, revealed that the virus had become attenuated but could still induce a protective immune response in monkeys and humans. 3 The 17D strain would serve as the basis of the vaccine still in use today and is responsible for saving untold numbers of lives.

For this work, Theiler was awarded the Nobel Prize. Acute laryngitis is almost invariably caused by viruses and is usually associated with influenza or common cold. The characteristic symptoms include hoarseness and deepening voice.

Acute laryngotracheobronchitis or croup is closely related to laryngitis, and is a relatively common disease among young children (under 3 years of age).). This illness is associated with fever, inspiratory stridor.

SUMMARY Ross River virus (RRV) is a fascinating, important arbovirus that is endemic and enzootic in Australia and Papua New Guinea and was epidemic in the South Pacific in and Infection with RRV may cause disease in humans, typically presenting as peripheral polyarthralgia or arthritis, sometimes with fever and rash.

RRV disease notifications in Australia average 5, per year.Laboratory diagnosis of Ebola virus disease plays a critical role in outbreak response efforts; however, establishing safe and expeditious testing strategies for this high-biosafety-level pathogen in resource-poor environments remains extremely challenging.
