Potato aucuba mosaic virus: purification, preparation of antisera and testing of greenhouse-grown potato plants

Summary

Antisera were prepared to a deviating strain (3103) of the potato aucuba mosaic virus (PAMV), symptomless inRecord, and to a strain fromAlbion. With these antisera no distinct serological differences could be detected between PAMV isolates fromAlbion, Friso (PSN1),Gloria, May Queen, Record (3103) andTriumf. With the antisera the virus was easily detected in greenhouse-grown potato plants with the micro-precipitin test, but not with the micro-agglutination test. With potato plants 3, 4 or 5 weeks old the reactions were stronger than with 8-week old plants.
