Characterization of plum pox isolates in Hungary

Studies were carried out in Hungary to characterize plum pox potyvirus (EPPO A2 quarantine pest) isolates. 15 isolates were tested by using ELISA with monoclonal antibodies, and it was found that both M (Marcus) and D (Dideron) serotypes are present in Hungary. It was also found that a few isolates showed intermediate relationships between the two main serotypes. It was felt that molecular analysis of these isolates was needed.
