PathoScreen® Kit for Potyvirus Group (Poty)

Agdia's Potyvirus Group test detects most aphid-transmitted members of the Potyvirus Group. This test is based on a monoclonal antibody (PTY 1) developed by the USDA Florist and Nursery Crops Laboratory in Beltsville, Maryland, USA. The broad reactivity of this antibody is possible because it reacts to a sequence of amino acids on the virus coat protein which is highly conserved among aphid-transmitted potyviruses. This test is intended to be used as a general screening tool. We recommend confirmation of positive results by another method (PCR, etc.)

Potyviruses are the largest group of plant pathogens and affect hundreds of crops. Viruses within this genus are transmitted through one or more of the following means: aphid, seed, mechanical, graft and pollen. Potyviruses can have a significant impact on crop production including loss of yield, unmarketable product and regulatory impacts.

Host Reaction: Scaevola tissue

Test Label: Alkaline Phosphatase
Test Format: Antigen coated plate (ACP) ELISA
Capture Reagent: Polystyrene Plate
Detection Reagent: Monoclonal

The list below represents Potyviruses that have been shown to be detected by the Potyvirus group ELISA test and does not represent all viruses that may be detected. If you have confirmed detection of a Potyvirus not on this list, please contact us. We would like to work with you to further validate the Potyvirus group ELISA detection capabilities.
