(A) Experimental scheme of whitefly-mediated transmission analysis. TYLCV-infected plants germinated from seeds collected from TYLCV-infected tomatoes (donor) and healthy tomato plants (recipients) were put in an insect tent with non-viruliferous whiteflies. During the first 4 weeks, whiteflies became TYLCV viruliferous, and seed-borne TYLCV was transmitted to tomato plants. (B) and (C) TYLCV-infected donor tomato plants. (D) and (E) Recipient tomato plants.
