      Conci, Vilma Cecilia; Luciani, Cecilia E.; Merino, M.C.; Celli, Marcos Giovani; Perotto, Maria Cecilia; Torrico Ramallo, Ada Karina; Pozzi, Elizabeth Alicia; Strumia, Gisella; Dughetti, Arturo Carlos; Asinari, Florencia; Conci, Luis Rogelio; Fernandez, Franco Daniel; Salazar, Sergio Miguel; Meneguzzi, Natalia; Kirschbaum, Daniel Santiago (2017-04)
      The presence of systemic pathogens, such as viruses and phytoplasmas, in strawberry plants is the usual situation worldwide. More than 20 virus species and 6 phytoplasmas 16Sr groups have been cited infecting strawberries ...
    • Detection and Identification of the First Viruses in Chia (Salvia hispanica) 

      Celli, Marcos Giovani; Perotto, Maria Cecilia; Martino, Julia Andrea; Flores, Ceferino Rene; Conci, Vilma Cecilia; Rodriguez Pardina, Patricia (MDPI, 2014-09)
      Chia (Salvia hispanica), an herbaceous plant native to Latin America, has become important in the last 20 years due to its beneficial effects on health. Here, we present the first record and identification of two viruses ...
    • First report of cowpea mild mottle virus in chia (Salvia hispanica) 

      Celli, Marcos Giovani; Perotto, Maria Cecilia; Merino, Maria Alicia; Nome Docampo, Claudia; Flores, Ceferino Rene; Conci, Vilma Cecilia (2016)
      Chia (Salvia hispanica), a herbaceous plant of Lamiaceae family, has gained popularity due to its high concentrations of health-beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids. Plants showing different virus-like symptoms were observed ...
    • First report of Strawberry crinkle virus in Argentina 

      Perotto, Maria Cecilia; Luciani, Carlos; Celli, Marcos Giovani; Torrico Ramallo, Ada Karina; Conci, Vilma Cecilia (2014-08-07)
      Strawberry crinkle virus (SCV) is one of the most frequent viruses affecting strawberry worldwide, and responsible for important reductions in yield and fruit quality. Stunted dwarfed plants with distorted leaves were found ...
    • Identification and characterization of a new potyvirus infecting cucurbits 

      Perotto, Maria Cecilia; Pozzi, Elizabeth Alicia; Celli, Marcos Giovani; Luciani, Cecilia E.; Mitidieri, Mariel Silvina; Conci, Vilma Cecilia (Springer, 2018-03)
      A new potyvirus, tentatively named cucurbit vein banding virus (CVBV), was identified in crops of cucurbits in San Pedro (Buenos Aires, Argentina). The complete genome sequences of two isolates of CVBV were obtained by ...
    • Incidence and prevalence of aphid-borne viruses infecting strawberry in Argentina 

      Luciani, Cecilia; Celli, Marcos Giovani; Torrico Ramallo, Ada Karina; Asinari, Florencia; Pozzi, Elizabeth Alicia; Peña Malavera, Andrea Natalia; Kirschbaum, Daniel Santiago; Perotto, Maria Cecilia; Conci, Vilma Cecilia (Wiley, 2018-07)
      The incidence and prevalence of strawberry viruses were determined in surveys of randomly selected strawberry plants grown in different regions of Argentina. In 2009 and 2010, 1034 plants from 28 fields and 1060 plants ...
    • Molecular characterization of the garlic virus B genome and evidence of allexivirus recombination 

      Celli, Marcos Giovani; Perotto, Maria Cecilia; Luciani, Cecilia E.; Pozzi, Elizabeth Alicia; Conci, Vilma Cecilia (Springer, 2018)
      Molecular characterization is important for differentiating allexiviruses species, since detection by serological methods may be uncertain. Eight different species have been reported as infecting garlic: Garlic virus A, ...
    • Molecular variability of watermelon mosaic virus isolates from Argentina 

      Pozzi, Elizabeth Alicia; Perotto, Maria Cecilia; Bertin, S.; Manglli, A.; Luciani, Cecilia; Conci, Vilma Cecilia; Tomassoli, L. (Springer, 2020-03)
      Watermelon mosaic virus (WMV) is an economically important virus of cucurbit crops in Argentina. The available information on genetic variability must be continuously updated. In this study, we assessed the molecular ...
    • Occurrence and characterization of a severe isolate of Watermelon mosaic virus from Argentina 

      Perotto, Maria Cecilia; Celli, Marcos Giovani; Pozzi, Elizabeth Alicia; Luciani, Cecilia E.; Conci, Vilma Cecilia (2016)
      More than 50 viruses have been reported in cucurbit crops worldwide. In Argentina, cucurbit viruses have been associated with important yield losses. The most prevalent and widespread potyvirus is Watermelon mosaic virus ...
    • Relative incidence of cucurbit viruses and relationship with bio-meteorological variables 

      Pozzi, Elizabeth Alicia; Bruno, Cecilia Inés; Luciani, Cecilia; Celli, Marcos Giovani; Conci, Vilma Cecilia; Perotto, Maria Cecilia (Springer, 2020-02)
      Environmental heterogeneity can shape the plant-virus relationship, furthering the appearance of new diseases in crops, or altering disease incidence and severity. In this work, we studied the virus association with ...
    • Temporal and spatial spread of potyvirus infection and its relationship to aphid populations visiting garlic crops 

      Perotto, Maria Cecilia; Di Rienzo, Julio A.; Panonto, Silvina Fernanda; Cafrune, Eva Encarnacion; Conci, Vilma Cecilia (Springer, 2014-11)
      The potyviruses Onion yellow dwarf virus (OYDV) and Leek yellow stripe virus (LYSV) are the main causes of serious losses in garlic crops worldwide. Both viruses are transmitted by aphid vectors in a non-persistent manner. ...
