Infection with phloem limited Abutilon Mosaic Virus caused localized carbohydrate accumulation (high levels of starch, sucrose, and hexoses) in leaves of Abutilon striatum during early symptom development. In mature leaves with attenuated symptoms, tissues showing faint vein-clearing had markedly higher carbohydrate contents than uniformly green areas of the same leaf. A similar pattern of carbohydrate accumulation was found in pale-green mosaics in mature leaves with overt symptoms when...[Show more]
