Abstract

The previous conditions for the physical characterization of turnip crinkle virus (TCV) by quantitative agarose gel electrophoresis [1, 2] were limiting the method to the microgram load level and were therefore insufficiently sensitive to satisfy the need in many areas of virology for detection of viruses containing single-stranded RNA at the nanogram level. The present report remedies that defect by presenting a technique compatible with the nanogram load level of such viruses. The technique is based on a reduction of gel thickness and on the use of silver staining.
