Natural recombinant Plum pox virus (PPV) isolates were detected in Albania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary and Slovakia. Despite different geographical origins and dates of isolation, all the recombinant isolates were closely related at the molecular level and shared the same recombination breakpoint as well as a typical signature in their N-terminal coat protein sequence, suggesting a common origin. Biological assays with four recombinant isolates demonstrated their capacity to be… CONTINUE READING
