Analysis of variability of P1 gene region of N strain of potato virus Y using temperature-gradient gel electrophoresis and DNA heteroduplex analysis.


Reaction conditions specific for reverse taranscription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) of potato virus Y strain NTN (PVYNTN) were used to amplify a 394 bp fragment of the P1 gene from selected PVY isolates with the aim to study the PVY variability within this genomic region. The P1 gene fragment from the Nicola isolate (Nicola P1/1 clone) was sequenced… (More)
