Characterization of plum pox potyvirus isolates in Romania and Czech Republic
Studies on the characterization of plum pox potyvirus isolates (PPV - EPPO A2 quarantine pest) were carried out in Romania and Czech Republic.
In Romania, in the region of north Transylvania (Bistrita Nasaud, Cluj, Suceava), samples of plum trees (Prunus domestica) showing visible symptoms on the leaves were collected and studied. On the 14 samples tested, 5 contained PPV strain M, others contained PPV strain D (Ravelonandro ; Minoiu, 1997).
In Czech Republic, 83 representative PPV isolates collected from different hosts and fruit growing areas were tested by ELISA-DASI using different monoclonal antibodies. Ten PPV isolates were recognized as PPV-M. 72 isolates were recognized at least by one of the PPV-D specific monoclonal antibodies. Only one PPV-M/PPV-D mixed infection was observed (Navratil et al., 1997).
