The apple scar skin disease was first re- ported 60 years ago in China ( Manchuria) with the name “Manshu-sabika-byo” (19). Twenty years later, two apple. Cause These diseases are caused by Apple scar skin viroid. Many infected cultivars of apple or pear do not express symptoms of disease. Apple scar skin viroid(ASSVd), a pathogenic RNA viroid, infects apple and pear trees. To determine if ASSVd can also infect apricot, we performed reverse.

Enhanced resolution of circular and linear molecular forms of viroid and viroid-like RNA by electrophoresis in a discontinuous-pH system. Published online Sep 1.

After fourteen days, the whiteflies were killed by spraying them with insecticide. The inoculated and control plants were analyzed via dot-blot hybridization Fig. Knowledge Bank home Change location.

Of the more than whitefly species described to date, only Bemisia and Trialeurodes whiteflies are known to be viral vectors, including B. None of the known whitefly-transmitted viruses mentioned above were identified data not shown. Introduction Whiteflies family Aleyrodidae are pests of herbaceous and woody plants in tropical countries and of greenhouse-grown plants in temperate climates. Please review our privacy policy.

Identification of the herbaceous host range of Apple scar skin viroid and analysis of its progeny variants. Plant Dis ; Vuroid leafroll virus-assisted aphid transmission of potato spindle tuber viroid to potato leafroll virus-resistant potato.

A healthy Tv colony was maintained on seed-grown eggplant Solanum melongena. The symptoms of ASSVd in apple are usually found at the calyx end of the fruit, and include scar skin reddish brown patches with brownish scar-like tissuevlroid, or dapple spotting symptoms. Disclosure of Potential Conflicts of Interest No potential conflicts of interest vifoid disclosed. Spread of Tomato apical stunt viroid TASVd in greenhouse tomato crops is associated with seed transmission and bumble bee activity.

Although the amplified fragment was not affected by this treatment, it disappeared when the whitefly DNA was incubated with DNase and then examined using PCR not shown.


Apple scar skin viroid naked RNA is actively transmitted by the whitefly Trialeurodes vaporariorum

Natural infection by the viroid has been observed not only in apple but also in Himalayan wild cherry, 19 monocots and flower crops such as gerbera unpublished data. Almost all fruit on an infected tree of a susceptible cultivar will show symptoms and are unmarketable.

Apple scar skin viroid (ASSVD0)[Overview]| EPPO Global Database

Following inoculation, the test plants were sprayed with an insecticide and kept in an insect-proof greenhouse pending the appearance of symptoms.

Because some insects are known to possess endogenous reverse transcription activity, 18 total DNA of the whitefly was isolated and tested for a possible DNA form of the viroid using PCR. As viroid-like secondary structures are found in some plant RNAs, and PP2 is known to bind and translocate several RNAs, the results have huge implications in transfer of these RNA species between plants visited by the whitefly.

Bean 21 and cucumber 22 RNA was used as negative control, the healthy whitefly 24 and viroidliferous whitefly 23 was also included in the blot, ASSVd dimeric transcript RNA inoculated cucumber 25bean 26tomato 27 and pea 28 were taken as positive control along with ASSVd monomeric insert containing plasmid 30, 31 and A simple and efficient method for isolating RNA from pine trees. Cookies on Plantwise Knowledge Bank Like most websites we use cookies.

To our surprise, the non-specific bp amplicon was neither of whitefly origin nor a mutated shorter form of the viroid, as is known in the case of CaSVd-like RNA.

Healthy, uninoculated plants were kept in a different insect-proof chamber as controls.

Before identifying the role of CsPP2 in viroid transmission, we examined whitefly-mediated transmission of viroid RNA alone. A serious threat to crop production.

Furthermore, the B biotype vector is invasive and displaces other biotypes. Close Find out more. Apple scar skin viroid in apple In: The viroid transfer efficiency was enhanced with the help of Cucumis sativus Phloem protein 2 CsPP2a plant protein known to translocate viroid RNAs.

J Virol ; Supplemental data for this article can be accessed on the publisher’s website. S3 and North-Western hybridization Fig. The whitefly-mediated transmission of ASSVd may enhance the efficiency of viroid transfer to a large number of plants and widen the host range. Studies on apple scar skin disease on transmission experiment. Sccar Center for Biotechnology InformationU. These plants are always in close enough contact for viable viroid-insect-plant transmission.

All of these results led us to identify a role for PP2 in viroid transfer and its translocation as a complex from the plant to the whitefly.

The emergence and dissemination of whitefly-transmitted geminiviruses in Latin America. Because these pathogens are non-protein-coding, they recruit host proteins to perform all of their major functions, including replication, trafficking and pathogenesis. Circular DNA was only amplified using samples from viroidliferous whiteflies Fig. These RNAs are likely to be taken up by the whitefly and possibly transmitted to new hosts.

Dot blot hybridization of the various plants inoculated through whitefly: Although symptoms of ASSVd are usually confined to the fruit, under certain conditions, some apple cultivars may develop leaf roll or leaf epinasty symptoms Ito and Yoshida, ; Koganezawa et al.

Archives of Virology ; Here, we demonstrated that the glasshouse whitefly acts as a vector for a pathogenic viroid RNA ASSVd known to propagate in plants, yeast Avocado sunblotch viroid and Chlamydomonas Eggplant latent viroid.
