 en Identification and Characterisation of a Potyvirus of Bambara Groundnut
Dijkstra, E.; Keesen, M.; Brink, D.; Peters, D. & Lohuis, H.


A potyvirus was isolated from Bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea (L.) Verdc.) plants raised in a glasshouse from seeds obtained from Zimbabwe. Infected plants showed stunting and foliar discolouration. The cause of the disease was identified to be a strain of peanut mottle virus. This was based on host reaction, serology, properties in crude sap, type of cylindrical inclusions and transmission characteristics. The strain was, consequently, named the Bambara groundnut strain of peanut mottle virus.

Un potyvirus etait isole des plants d'arachide de Bambara (Vigna subterranea) eleves sous serre vitree. Ces plants provenaient de semences obtenues de Zimbabwe. Les plants infectes montraient un arret de croissance et une decoloration foliaire. La cause de la maladie etait identifiee comme etant la fatigue due au virus de marbrure d'arachide. Ceci etait du a la reaction de l'hote, a la serologie, aux proprietes de la seve brute, au type d'inclusions du cylindre et de caracteristiques de transmission de la maladie. La race etait par consequent denommee virus de marbrure d'arachide de Bambara.
