Additional Information
Banana streak virus Acuminata Yunnan is a non-enveloped, double stranded DNA virus with a circular genome encoding three open reading readings. The virus infects bananas (Musa sp.), causing banana streak disease. The symptoms will vary between banana streak viruses, but common symptoms include chlorotic and necrotic streaking. The infections will lead to stunted growth and reduction in bunch size (yield loss). The virus has been observed to integrate into the genome of the host banana. The virus likely spreads via insect vectors and may be also seedborne. It is unlikely to be mechanically transmitted.

Banana streak virus is similar to Sugarcane bacilliform virus.
