Abstract

BackgroundEmerging tospoviruses cause significant yield losses and quality reduction in vegetables, ornamentals, and legumes throughout the world. So far, eight tospoviruses were reported in China. Tomato fruits displaying necrotic and concentric ringspot symptoms were found in Guizhou province of southwest China.FindingELISA experiments showed that crude saps of the diseased tomato fruit samples reacted with antiserum against Tomato zonate spot virus (TZSV). Electron microscopy detected presence of quasi-spherical, enveloped particles of 80¿100 nm in such saps. The putative virus isolate was designated 2009-GZT. Mechanical back-inoculation showed that 2009-GZT could infect systemically some solanaceous crop and non-crop plants including Capiscum annuum, Datura stramonium, Nicotiana benthamiana, N. rustica, N. tabacum and Solanum lycopersicum. The 3012 nt full-length sequence of 2009-GZT S RNA shared 68.2% nt identity with that of Calla lily chlorotic spot virus (CCSV), the highest among all compared viruses. This RNA was predicted to encode a non-structural protein (NSs) (459 aa, 51.7 kDa) and a nucleocapsid protein (N) (278 aa, 30.3 kDa). The N protein shared 85.8% amino acid identity with that of CCSV. The NSs protein shared 82.7% amino acid identity with that of Tomato zonate spot virus(TZSV).ConclusionOur results indicate that the isolate 2009-GZT is a new species of Tospovirus, which is named Tomato necrotic spot virus (TNSV). This finding suggests that a detailed survey in China is warranted to further understand the occurrence and distribution of tospoviruses.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 22 February 2015.
All research outputs
#1,838,150
of 4,790,642 outputs
Outputs from Virology Journal
#426
of 1,320 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#51,710
of 163,150 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Virology Journal
#23
of 50 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,790,642 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 60th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,320 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.3. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 66% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 163,150 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 67% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 50 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 48th percentile – i.e., 48% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
