Characterization of two distinct Pepino mosaic virus isolates from tomato in Lithuania [Kiauliauogės mozaikos viruso (Pepino mosaic virus) dviejų skirtingų genotipų aptiktų pomidoruose Lietuvoje charakteristika]

Abstract Two isolates of Pepino mosaic virus (PepMV) from tomato plants grown in different commercial greenhouses in Lithuania were characterized by coat protein (CP) gene sequence analysis. Comparison with other PepMV isolates from the GenBank database showed that both Lithuanian PepMV isolates share 78.3% nucleotide identity and belong to two distinct EU and CH2 genotypes of PepMV. This is the first report on characterization of two PepMV genotypes detected in Lithuania.
