Identification of Tobacco streak virus Associated With a Virus-like Mottle Symptom on Hosta

J. R. Fisher

January 2013


In this brief, the authors describe the identification of Tobacco streak virus associated with a virus-like leaf symptom on Hosta spp. The identity of the virus was confirmed by ELISA and PCR using cDNAs synthesized from dsRNA template and immuncaptured virions and primers to amplify the movement protein and capsid protein genes. This is the first report of TSV infecting Hosta in Ohio, and to our knowledge in the United States.
