Potato virus A (PVA) was purified from mechanically infected plants Nicotiana tabacum cv Samsun by high speed centrifugation and subsequent isopycnic density gradient centrifugation in CsCl gradient. From different procedures tested 0.05 mol/l phosphate buffer (PBS) pH 8 seemed optimal for virus purification and 0.1 mol/l borate buffer pH 8.0 for virus(More)
Coat protein (CP) coding regions of six Potato mop-top virus (PMTV) isolates from the Czech Republic and Denmark (54-10, 54-11, 54-15, 54-19, Korneta and Pacov) were sequenced. Comparison of the obtained nucleotide sequences as well as alignment of the deduced amino acid sequences were performed. The obtained results showed that the isolates from different(More)
Specific mouse antibodies against a recombinant coat protein (CP) of Potato virus A (PVA) were produced. The PVA CP gene was cloned in an expression vector pMPM4omega. After expression in Escherichia coli the presence of the expressed CP was proved by Western blot analysis using polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies (MAbs). The expressed CP was purified by(More)
The influence of viral infection caused by two different potyviruses, Potato virus Y (PVY) and Potato virus A (PVA) on plant metabolism and photosynthetic apparatus of Nicotiana tabacum L. cv. Samsun and cv. Petit Havana SR1 was studied. The main stress was focused on the activities of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC), NADP-malic enzyme (NADP-ME), and(More)
The effect of Potato virus Y NTN (PVY) infection upon photosynthesis was analysed in transgenic Pssu-ipt tobacco overproducing endogenous cytokinins in comparison with control, nontransgenic Nicotiana tabacum plants. The course of the infection from the early to the late stage was monitored by measuring of photosynthetic gas exchange and fast chlorophyll(More)
We studied the effect of biotic stress caused by Potato virus Y (PVY) on photosynthesis in transgenic Pssu-ipt tobacco overproducing endogenous cytokinins (CK) in comparison with control (non-transformed) plants. Both control and transgenic tobacco were grown as rooted or grafted plants. Content of viral protein increased significantly in control tobacco(More)
The gene encoding the coat protein (CP) of a potato virus Y (PVY) was cloned into expression vector pMPM-A4Ω. PVY CP was expressed in Escherichia coli and the purified recombinant protein was used for raising rabbit polyclonal antibodies. The sera and antibodies were tested for the detection of PVY in the laboratory host Nicotiana tabacum cv. Petit Havana(More)
The nucleotide sequence was determined for Czech potato mop-top virus (PMTV) isolate Korneta-Nemilkov, found in the potato field situated in South Bohemia. The nucleotide and amino acid sequences were compared with other PMTV isolates available in databases. The sequence identity was always >99 % when Czech isolate RNA 2 and RNA 3 sequences were compared(More)
The optimized expression of recombinant Potato virus A coat protein (ACP) carrying two different epitopes from Human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV16) was developed. Epitope derived from minor capsid protein L2 was expressed as N-terminal fusion with ACP while an epitope derived from E7 oncoprotein was fused to its C-terminus. The construct was cloned into(More)
Transient expression of foreign genes based on plant viral vectors is a suitable system for the production of relevant immunogens that can be used for the development of a new generation of vaccines against a variety of infectious diseases. In the present study the epitope derived from HPV-16 L2 minor capsid protein (amino acids 108–120) was expressed from(More)
