|Issue Date:||2005||Publisher:||Blackwell Verlag||Source:||Journal of Phytopathology, 2005, Volume 153, Issue 9, Pages 530-535||Abstract:||In a survey during 2000-2002 to determine the identity and prevalence of viruses affecting cucurbit crops in Cyprus, 2993 samples of cucumber, zucchini, melon and watermelon were collected from the five major cucurbit-growing areas in Cyprus. Zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV), Papaya ringspot virus type W (PRSV-W), Watermelon mosaic virus (WMV), Cucurbit aphid-borne yellows virus (CABYV), Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) and Squash mosaic virus (SqMV) were detected by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and Cucurbit yellow stunting disorder virus (CYSDV), Beet pseudo-yellows virus (BPYV) and Cucumber vein yellowing virus (CVYV) by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). ZYMV was the most prevalent virus of cucurbits in Cyprus with an overall incidence of 45%. PRSV-W, CABYV and WMV were detected in 20.8%, 20.8% and 7.8% of the samples tested, respectively. CYSDV was detected in most greenhouse cucumber samples with yellowing symptoms (88.1%), whereas BPYV and CVYV were found in only 2.4% and 9.5%, respectively, of samples. CMV and SqMV were not detected in any cucurbitaceous crop during this survey.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/5082||ISSN:||09311785||DOI:||10.1111/j.1439-0434.2005.01015.x||Rights:||© 2005 Blackwell Verlag, Berlin.
