Abstract

The titres obtained in microprecipitin tests with purified preparations of pepino latent virus (PepLV) and the Andean strain of potato virus S (PVSA) using PepLV antiserum and two antisera to the ordinary strain of PVS (PVS°) indicated a close serological relationship between PepLV and PVSA. Using antiserum to PVS°, both viruses were detected by ELISA when infective Chenopodium quinoa sap was diluted to 10‐5but not to 10‐6. Particles of both viruses were decorated equally well by antibodies to PVSo, PVSAand PepLV in all virus‐antiserum combinations. When PepLV was inoculated to C. quinoa, C. amaranticolor and potato plants, the symptoms induced closely resembled those of PVSAin these hosts. It is concluded that PepLV is an isolate of PVSAfrom pepino.
