Potato mop-top virus (PMTV) is classified as a plant quarantine virus in Korea. It is tested at import inspection sites. In this study, two sets of reverse transcription-hemi-nested polymerase chain reaction primers were developed to diagnose PMTV. In addition, modified- positive control plasmid was developed for the identification of false positive results in plant quarantine. The assay is expected to be useful for improving the detection and diagnosis of PMTV.
