Mechanism of Resistance to Rice Tungro Spherical Virus (RTSV)
Jefferson, Osmat Azzam & Cabauatan, P.Q. (1998) Mechanism of Resistance to Rice Tungro Spherical Virus (RTSV). International Rice Research Notes (IRRN), 23(2), pp. 24-25.
RTSV is one of two viruses that cause tungro disease. RTSV is independently transmitted, whereas the other virus, rice tungro bacilliform virus (RTBV), is dependent on RTSV for its transmission by the green leafhopper (GLH), Nephotettix virescens. The occurrence and spread of tungro disease therefore depend on the presence of RTSV in the field. Resistance to RTSV infection would slow down the spread of the disease.
