Abstract: This study was carried out to determine physiological and biochemical changes in C. moschata inoculated with a Nigerian strain of MWMV isolated from Lagenaria breviflora in Calabar, Nigeria. The virus infection resulted in significant (p#0.05) reductions in plant height, leaf area and number of leaves produces with highest percentage difference of 39.3% (42 PID), 60.9% (35 PID) and 25.7% (49 PID), respectively. There was a significant (p#0.05) difference in chlorophyll content between inoculated and healthy pl… Show more

“…The maximum concentrations of total chlorophyll and protein were measured 24 hrs after the biocide treatment in both protective and curative experiments. The same results had been obtained by Anuradha et al (2015) and Mofunanya and Edu (2015). The reduction in the chlorophyll content in virus-infected plants may be due to the stimulation of some cellular enzymes like chlorophyllase (Goodman et al, 1967), or as a consequence of the effect of the virus on pigment synthesis (Balachandran et al, 1997).…”

“…Infection by pathogens can cause substantial biochemical alterations leading to harmful effects on plant health. Diseases may reduce plant growth and yield (Mofunanya and Edu, 2015). Because enzymes control biochemical reactions, and their synthesis is under the control of specific gene(s), any change in the activity and/or the number of BPs would reflect the pattern of gene expression and corresponding metabolic events in the cell (Neog et al, 2004).…”

“…This work represents the second report of MWMV in papaya worldwide. MWMV has been reported in Africa and the Mediterranean region mostly in cucurbits such as Cucurbita pepo (Yakoubi et al, 2008;Ibaba et al, 2016;Kidanemariam et al, 2019), Cucumis melo (Lecoq et al, 2001), Lagenaria bleviflora, and Adenopus breviflorus (Owolabi et al, 2012;Mofunanya and Edu, 2015). Our findings would suggest that papaya is an additional natural host for MWMV and that there could be more wild or cultivated hosts requiring further determination.…”
