A highly sensitive express immunochromatography method for molecular diagnosis of plant virus infections was elaborated on the example of a model object — tobacco mosaic virus (TMV). The analysis time does not exceed 5 min, and the lower limit of TMV detection in non-clarified leaf extract (2–4 ng/ml) is comparable with the sensitivity of the enzyme-linked(More)
The development and the possible mechanism of the chitosan-induced resistance to viral infection were investigated in potato plants. The plants were sprayed with a solution of chitosans (1 mg/ml) with the mol wt of 3, 36, and 120 kD. After 1, 2, 3, or 4 days, the treated leaves were cut off and mechanically infected with the potato virus X (PVX). The disks(More)
A lateral flow immunoassay for the rapid detection of Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. sepedonicus bacteria causing potato ring rot was developed. Multimembrane composites (test strips) containing polyclonal antibodies against the bacteria and gold nanoparticle-antibody conjugates were used for the analysis. The test strips are suitable for the analysis of(More)
