Catalog #:  V188
Source Antibody:  Rabbit polyclonal antibody for both capture and detection.
Test Format:  DAS ELISA                                   

Reactivity:  The test reacted with all CVX isolates tested. Reaction of the ELISA is moderate strong.  Optical Density at 405nm  is in arrange of 0.850 - >3.000 depending on the virus titer in the samples tested.

Sensitivity:  Sensitivity of the ELISA is relatively high.  The virus can be consistently detected in infected plant tissues diluted  at 1:810 - 1:2430.

Specificity:  There is no cross reaction with healthy plant  tissues such as cactus or other host plants. Background is low on all of  the negative control wells.

Application:  The test can be used to detect CVX in infected host plants.

Information About the Virus

Name: Cactus X Virus
Acronym:  CVX
Synonyms:  barrel cactus virus (Attathom et al, 1978; Milne, 1988).
Group/Genus:
  Potexvirus

Vector:
Transmission:
  Virus transmitted by mechanical inoculation; transmitted by grafting; transmitted by contact between plants; not transmitted by seed.
Main natural host plants: Opuntia vulgaris, Austrocylindropuntia cylindrica, Pereskia saccharosa, Schlumbergera bridgesii, Epiphyllum spp., Cereus spp., Echinopsis spp., Zygocactus spp., Ferocactus acanthodes, Echinocereus procumbens.

Virus Infection: Symptoms none. Usually infected symptomlessly.
Diagnostically susceptible host species and symptoms: Amaranthus caudatus - necrotic local lesions; rarely systemic. Gomphrena globosa, Chenopodium amaranticolor - necrotic local lesions; not systemic. C. quinoa - systemic mottle.

Geographical distribution: Probably distributed worldwide (in cultivated cacti). Spreads in the North American region; the USA.
