Abstract

Infectious hybrid virus was generated by replacing part of the coat protein gene of plum pox potyvirus with that of the zucchini yellow mosaic potyvirus. This viable hybrid contains 84.5% of zucchini yellow mosaic potyvirus coat protein gene while the rest of the sequence was derived from plum pox potyvirus. Changing the coat protein gene between these two viruses had no effect on the experimental host range. Pathogenicity, stability and replication capacity of the hybrid virus were nearly identical to the parent viruses.
