First report of Pepino mosaic potexvirus in Hungary

In spring 2004, the presence of Pepino mosaic potexvirus (PepMV - EPPO Alert List) was detected in a glasshouse of tomatoes in central Hungary. The virus was detected on the basis of symptoms, transmission to tomato seedlings and serological tests (ELISA with specific antisera for PepMV). This is the first report of Pepino mosaic potexvirus in Hungary. Studies are being done to characterize the Hungarian isolate of PepMV.
