Pelargonium flower break virus (PFBV) is one of the common viruses in the glasshouses of Western Europe and has been assigned to the genus Carmovirus. A Spanish isolate obtained from nursery-grown Pelargonium zonale plants (PFBV-m) has been characterized. The molecular weight of genomic RNA and coat protein of PFBV-m were determined to be 1.36 × 106 (corresponding to approximately 4 kb) and 36,000, respectively. Only genomic-size RNA was encapsidated in PFBV virions; making necessary to purify… CONTINUE READING
