Tobacco Etch Virus (Potyvirus TEV ) on flue-cured tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (flue-cured type)) - 1402032

Tobacco Etch Virus
Potyvirus TEV

Host: flue-cured tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (flue-cured type) L.)
Descriptor: Symptoms
Description: Symptoms vary depending on the strain of the virus present and the conditions of plant growth. Veinclearing (lightening of the tissue in and around veins) is followed by a faint, light-green mottling of the leaf. This mottling is similar to that observed with tobacco mosaic; but with etch, the blotches are much less pronounced. Older infected leaves may show a stippled pattern of numerous, small, white flecks and fine lines (etchings), especially along veins.
