Symptoms of Wheat Striate Mosaic Virus on maize

WSTMV symptoms WSTMV minipurification

Left: typical symptoms (minor vein clearing) of leafhopper transmitted viruses (var. N28)
Wheat striate mosaic is occasionally found (a few plants) in selected maize varieties

Right: Gel with acid minipurifications (0.4M citrate, pH 4.5 except for Okra, 6.5). Yellow* = WSMV cp, green* = WStMV nucleoprotein, violet* = MCMV cp, red* = CGMMV cp (internal standard), Note rubisco L and S subunits in okra sample. pH 6.5 extractions were not "clean" enough to show WStMV nucleoprotein.
