Abstract

SUMMARY

An immune electron microscopic technique for detecting plant viruses is described which involves pre-coating electron microscope grids with protein A (a wall protein of ) before coating them with specific anti-serum. The method trapped 339 and 51 times more sugarcane mosaic virus and tobacco mosaic virus particles, respectively, than untreated grids. It appears particularly suitable for virus particles occurring in plant extracts in small numbers.
