Abstract

A procedure based on the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) has been developed to classify cucumber mosaic cucumovirus (CMV) isolates accurately into two subgroups. Two CMV-specific primers that flank the CMV capsid protein gene were used to amplify a DNA fragment of approximately 870 bp. Restriction enzyme analysis of this fragment produces distinct restriction patterns that assign the CMV isolate into one of two subgroups. These two restriction groups correlate with the previously established CMV subgroupings; this PCR-based method may provide a simple alternative to the serological assays used for typing CMV isolates.
