RNA sequences complementary to citrus exocortis viroid in nucleic acid preparations from infected Gynura aurantiaca.


Molecular hybridization with (125)I-labeled citrus exocortis viroid RNA has been used to survey nucleic acid preparations from Gynura aurantiaca for viroid complementary molecules. A differential hybridization effect was detected between nucleic acid extracts from healthy and infected tissue in which significant RNase-resistant (125)I-labeled citrus… (More)
