Bean common mosaic virus (BCMV) consists of a large number of strains with complex and controversial relationships among them and with other potyviruses that infect legumes. In order to elucidate the BCMV taxonomic pattern and its evolutionary implications, a phylogenetic analysis has been carried out. The analysis of the coat protein gene and 3' non-coding(More)
The great amount of pollutants released from kraft pulp processes, mainly from cooking and bleaching stages, is one of the most relevant environmental problems in this type of industry. New bleaching sequences are being studied based on the use of oxidative enzymes from fungal cultures. In this study, the bleaching systems consisting of Laccase and(More)
Complementary DNA (cDNA) probes, prepared by nick-translation or by oligolabelling of a 520 bp fragment representing residues 4741 to 5261 in the potato leafroll luteovirus (PLRV) sequence, were equally sensitive, with a detection limit equivalent to sap from about 600 micrograms of infected potato or Nicotiana clevelandii leaf tissue and to RNA from about(More)
We here identified for the first time the presence of Mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis (MAP) sheep (S) strain in Argentina. IS900 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was positive. The S strain was compared with MAP cattle (C) strains by using IS1311 PCR-restriction endonuclease analysis (PCR-REA), multiplex PCR and restriction fragment length polymorphism(More)
An assay involving reverse transcription and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is described for specific detection of serotypes A and B BCMV isolates in bean leaf and seed tissues. Three oligonucleotide primers designed according to the sequence data available allow, in appropriate combination, serotype-specific detection of BCMV. The sensitivity of the(More)
