W. S. Yun, Y. H. Lee, K. H. Kim
Infected sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) showing symptoms of sunken veins, stunting, mosaic, and mottling were collected from Gimje, Gochang, Iksan, and Haenam provinces in Korea. Electron microscopic (EM) observation of the infected tissue revealed rod and filamentous rod type virus particles of various lengths. Western blot analysis of the protein samples extracted from infected sweet potato and partially purified virus identified the isolates as Sweet potato feathery mottle virus (SPFMV), Sweet potato latent virus (SwPLV), and Sweet potato chlorotic stunt virus (SPCSV). Sweet potatoes were occasionally infected with more than one of these viruses. This is the first report of SwPLV and SPCSV in Korea.
Key Words: EM, sweet potato, SPCSV, SPFMV, SwPLV, Western blot
