An increasing number of countries in recent years have reported the occurrence of potato tuber necrotic ringspot disease (PTNRD), caused by tobacco veinal necrosis strain of Potato virus Y (PVY(N)), belonging to the sub-group tuber necrosis (PVY(NTN)). Methods for the differentiation of PVY(NTN), based on primer sequences often detect isolates of European (EU) type but not the North American (NA) type. To resolve this problem, the nucleotide sequence of 5'-untranslated region (5'-UTR) and the… CONTINUE READING
