I'm assuming that by "inter-cellular transmission" you mean "cell-to-cell 
movement", right ? Well, dahlia mosaic is a Caulimovirus, and most of the 
research on this group is done on Cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV) by 
Robert Shepherd's group at the Univ. of Kentucky (sp?). You might want to 
check recent references on this virus (some good keywords would be CaMV, 
cauliflower mosaic, caulimovirus). On cell-to-cell movement, check the 
review paper by Lucas and Gilbertson on the Annual Review of 
Phytopathology, 1994. It's not only on caulimoviruses (actually, most of 
it is on geminiviruses, tobamoviruses and dyanthoviruses) but it will 
certainly be a good source of references on caulimoviruses' movement. 

Hope this helps.
