Screening Some Medicinal Plants against Moroccan Watermelon Mosaic Virus (Mwmv)

LITERATURE REVIEW

Several authors have written about different plant extracts that have used against different viruses that affect, human, animal and plants. This work is basically on plant viruses.

According to (Ding and Vonnet, 2007) Arabidopsis thaliana was used to silence turnip mosaic virus. A thacliana respond to virus infections by activation of RNA-Based silencing, which limits infection at both the single-cell and system levels.

(Ara et al, 2012) reported that antiviral activities from steptomucetes were used against tobacco mosaic virus to reduce infection on plant leaves after one week of inoculation.

According to (Madhusudhan et al, 2012) extract Nicotiana glutinosa was used to reduce infection of virus on tobamoviruses, the screening was conducted by using the local lesion assay, the results showed that all theĀ  inducers used for screening were effective in reducing the number of local lesions formed by the challenge inoculation of tobamoviruses.
