Virus-like particles were purified from banana plants with banana bunchy top disease. These particles were isometric with a diameter of 18 to 20 nm and a density of 1.28 to 1.30 g/ml in caesium sulphate. Associated with these particles were an ssDNA of about 1 kb and one major protein of Mr 20,100. DsDNA was synthesized from nucleic acid extracts from these particles and cloned. One clone, pBT338, hybridized specifically (i) with sap extracts from plants infected with banana bunchy top virus… CONTINUE READING
