Prunus necrotic ringspot virus (PNRSV)

The virus occurs world-wide in temperate regions and causes a serious disease of Prunus species and other woody crops (e.g. rose). It is transmitted through pollen and seeds. Mechanical inoculation is also possible, but the particles are rather unstable.

The symptoms vary according to host plant and virus strain. They range from mild mosaic to necrotic ringspot to stunting and death of buds and roots. The particles are isometric with a diameter of around 23 nm.
