Abstract

Since the 1950s, cultivation of dolichos (Lablab purpureus) has been affected by dolichos yellow mosaic disease (DYMD), which is associated with a begomovirus tentatively named Dolichos yellow mosaic virus (DoYMV). Characteristic symptoms of the disease are bright yellow mosaic patches on leaves, with significant yield reductions. A sample from a DYMD-affected dolichos plant was collected from Mysore, Karnataka, India in February 2004. The putative virus was transmitted by the whitefly Bemisia tabaci from dolichos to dolichos cv. Mani. PCR analysis of total DNA from infected leaf samples confirmed the presence of this distinct begomovirus in dolichos from the Indian subcontinent
