Distribution of beet necrotic yellow vein furovirus in sugar beet roots

Tissue print-immunoblotting was used in Germany to determine the distribution of beet necrotic yellow vein furovirus (EPPO A2 organism) particles in roots of sugarbeet. It was found that even at very high virus titres the virus is not evenly distributed in the roots, but occurs in patches primarily under the typical root beards. Additionally, the virus could be found at some occasions within the xylem of the root.
