Rice black-streaked dwarf virus (RBSDV)
The virus causes the rice black-streaked dwarf disease in eastern Asia and sporadic, but serious outbreaks have been reported. Infected rice plants are stunted with dark green, deformed leaves containing black or waxy white galls on the underside of the leaf blades and stems. It also infects other cereals like maize or wheat. In maize it also causes outbreaks and symptoms similar to those of Maize rough dwarf virus, a closely related virus.
The particles are icosahedral, doublelayered and about 75-80 nm large with 10 double-stranded RNA segments. See also the related Southern rice black-streaked dwarf virus.
