The 3′-proximal part (1.8 kb) of the Sweet potato feathery mottle virus (SPFMV) genome was studied in four SPFMV isolates collected from farmers' fields in western Uganda (SPFMV-Bny), eastern Uganda (SPFMV-Sor) and Bagamoyo district, Tanzania (SPFMV-TZ1 and SPFMV-TZ2). Unlike the other three SPFMV isolates, SPFMV-Sor was not detected with the polyclonal antisera to SPFMV. It showed moderately high coat protein (CP) nucleotide (93.3–96.7%) and amino acid (93.6–96.8%) sequence identity to the… CONTINUE READING
