Immunoprecipitation of a 50-kDa protein: a candidate receptor component for tomato spotted wilt tospovirus (Bunyaviridae) in its main vector, Frankliniella occidentalis.

Abstract

A 50-kDa protein that binds to viral particles in solid-phase assays and that is recognized by anti-idiotypic antibodies made against anti-viral glycoproteins G1/G2 (anti-Ids) has been proposed as a receptor candidate for tomato spotted wilt tospovirus (TSWV) in its main thrips vector, Frankliniella occidentalis Pergande (Bandla et al., 1998. Phytopathology… (More)
