Abstract:

Banana (Musa paradisiaca) is herbaceous plant belonging to the family Musaceae of the genus Musa and is native to the tropical region of South East Asia. Viral diseases have been causing considerable damage to banana production in banana growing areas due to their systemic invasion and common spread through vegetatively propagated planting materials. Among viruses infecting banana Cucumber mosaic virus infecting banana has become more severe and economically important after Banana bunchy top virus (BBTV). Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) causes infectious chlorosis disease in banana. CMV infecting different crops have been classified into two subgroups (I and II) based on biological and serological properties as well as on the basis of CP sequence homology. Thus, in order to characterize CMV infecting Banana in selected places of Karnataka, complete coat protein gene was amplified and sequenced. The molecular and phylogenetic analysis of CP gene sequence of CMV infecting banana revealed that CMV infecting Banana in Bangalore, Kolar and Dharwad belongs to Sero group I.
