Have virus-like particles been found in leaf of Kerala wilt diseased coconut palms? - not yet



Have virus-like particles been found in leaf of Kerala wilt diseased coconut palms? - not yet



Journal of Plantation Crops 6(2): 87-91



The icosahedral, submicroscopic particles (56 nm diam.) previously observed in the epidermis and ground parenchyma cells of leaf tissues from coconut wilt root disease and claimed to be virus-like, were found to be transverse to slightly oblique sections of plasmadesmata, a portion of the cell wall and some ribosomes. The presence of virus-like particles is yet to be demonstrated. In an addendum to the paper, K.
