Over 40 isolates of potato spindle tuber viroid (PSTVd) have been reported from potato, other Solanum species and greenhouse tomato. These isolates have sequence similarities in the range 95-99%. A viroid which caused chlorotic leaves and severe dwarfing of plants in greenhouse tomato crops was detected. The viroid was found to hybridize readily with PSTVd probes. It migrated faster than PSTVd in return-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and was not amplified in RT-PCR by a primer pair based on… CONTINUE READING
