Lettuce mosaic virus (LMV)
This virus is widely distributed and causes a serious disease on lettuce. The symptoms include leaf mosaic, severe stunting with a failure to produce heads in lettuce, leaf deformation and necrosis. Infections can lead to plant death. The virus is transmitted by a variety of aphids (e.g. Myzus persicae) in a non-persistent manner and also through seeds.
The particles are about 700-800 nm long and 15 nm wide. The genome with around 10,000 nt translates into a large polyprotein which is transformed into 10 mature proteins.
For a review see German-Retana et al., 2008.
