Thrlps as Tospovirus Hosts

Replication of Tospoviruses in Thrips Considering the morphological similarity of TSWV to bunyaviruses, Milne and Francki 39 suggested that TSWV might replicate in thrips. The first claim that TSWV multiplied in its vector was made in 1987 by Cho et al. 40 . They showed that the virus titer decreased between 4 and 10 days after acquisition but increased after 19 days. Conclusive evidence was obtained by Ullman et al. 3 and Wijkamp et al. 4 , The former authors measured the titer of the...

Thrips Vectors and Tospovirus Transmission

Pittman 7 discovered that Thrips tabaci transmits TSWV It was believed for decades that this species was the main vector of TSWV, although other vector species were known 8 , However, the vector status of T. tabaci has been challenged in recent years 9 and appears more complex than previously surmised 10, 11 . The cosmopolitan T. tabaci seems the main vector of this virus in tobacco in Eastern Europe, whereas Frankliniella schultzei is considered the main vector in tobacco in the United States...
