Southern rice black-streaked dwarf virus (SRBSDV) is a member of the genus Fijivirus of the family Reoviridae that causes a devastating disease in rice. Seven polypeptide fragments of the Putative uncharacterized protein (Pup) and the P10 proteins of SRBSDV were designed, synthesized, and used to immunize rabbits. Titers of polyclonal antibodies against the(More)
