Biolistic infection of cassava using cloned components of Indian cassava mosaic virus

Biolistic infection of cassava using cloned components of Indian cassava mosaic virus Cassava mosaic disease (CMD) is a major constraint to cassava production in Africa and Asia. Of the two begomoviruses associated with CMD on the Indian subcontinent, Indian cassava mosaic virus (ICMV) and Sri Lankan cassava mosaic virus, only the latter has been successfully reintroduced into cassava to resolve the aetiology of the disease. Here, we report the complete nucleotide sequence of an ICMV isolate from Maharashtra (ICMV-(Mah2)), central India. Biolistic inoculation of the cloned components produced a systemic infection and typical mosaic symptoms in cassava, thereby fulfilling Koch’s postulates. The availability of infectious clones will provide a valuable tool to screen new cassava cultivars for disease resistance under defined conditions. Archives of Virology Springer Journals
