Identification of Pepper Viruses by Das-elisa Assays in Gaziantep-Turkey

Mehmet Ozaslan, Berna Bas, Turkan Aytekin and Zeynep Sigirci    

Abstract: Pepper growing are negatively affected due to the diseases caused by pepper viruses in Gaziantep. In order to avoid the damage of pepper viruses, survey was performed in Nurdagi and Islahiye districts of Gaziantep province located in southeastern Anatolia. The symptoms observed on pepper plants in yards were consisted of mosaic and curling, vein clearing, chlorotic and necrotic spot, fruit and leaf deformations. In October 2001, samples were collected and performed biological and serological assays. TMV and CMV were determined as responsible agent of these symptoms. GAP (Güney-Dogu Anadolu Projesi = Southeastern Anatolia Project) is one of the most important agricultural recovery projects of Turkey. One of GAP inclusion is Gaziantep become a leading producer of pepper in Turkey. Although damage by viruses is yet very below threshold level, an effective control strategies should be now argued to avoid from possible virus problems in longer term.
