Abstract

Okra ( Abelmoschus esculentus ) is a major crop in Niger. In the fall of 2007, okra leaf curl disease was observed in Niger and the begomovirus and DNA-β satellite were found associated with the disease. The complete nucleotide sequences of DNA-A (FJ469626 and FJ469627) and associated DNA-β satellites (FJ469628 and FJ469629) were determined from two samples. This is the first report of molecular characterization of okra-infecting begomovirus and their associated DNA-β from Niger. The begomovirus and DNA-β have been identified as Cotton leaf curl Gezira virus and Cotton leaf curl Gezira betasatellite , respectively, which are reported to also infect okra in Egypt, Mali and Sudan.
