Identification of the new strain of Strawberry latent ringspot virus isolated from black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.)
Journal of Phytopathology 155 (11-12), 738-742
Abstract: Three isolates of Strawberry latent ringspot virus (SLRSV) were obtained from black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.): SLRSV-G2, SLRSV-N31 and SLRSV-W16. The isolates were identified by the host range, particle morphology, serological properties and virus-specific reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. The studies showed that two Polish isolates: SLRSV-N31 and SLRSV-W16 are almost identical, while the SLRSV-G2 isolate is remarkably different. Phylogenetic analysis confirmed that SLRSV-G2 is also distinct from others reported to date. Pairwise comparisons of SLRSV-G2 with other isolates available in GenBank database showed only 76-79% nucleotide similarity. Therefore, SLRSV-G2 is proposed as a new strain of SLRSV.
