ELISA test to detect American plum line pattern ilarvirus
In USA, a DAS-ELISA test has been developed and allows the detection of American plum line pattern ilarvirus (EPPO A1 quarantine pest) in leaves and stems from infected Prunus plants. With this test it is possible to differentiate American plum line pattern ilarvirus from other ilarviruses. The authors felt that this ELISA test seemed more reliable than currently used indicator plants (peach GF305 and Shiro plum) and could be a promising tool for certification and international quarantine programmes.
