A reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) protocol used for the detection of potato viruses in dormant tubers and leaves and in an aphid vector is described. Problems in plant sample preparation from different hosts, uneven distribution or low concentration of viruses and the presence of PCR inhibitors in plant extracts are discussed and various ways to eliminate their effect are described. Using Potyviridae viruses, it has been shown that RT-PCR in various modified forms can… CONTINUE READING
