A molecular assay for detection of Hop Latent Viroid


Hop latent viroid (HLVd, Cocadviroid ) is widespread, infecting cultivated hops, Humulus lupulus , worldwide. This pathogen was discovered during surveys for Hop stunt viroid (HSVd, Hostuviroid ) in Spain and Germany during the late 1980’s. Initially, HLVd was referred to as “hop viroid-like RNA fast, or HV-f.” Thereafter, it was characterized and named Hop latent viroid . In addition to cultivated hops, HLVd is known to infect Japanese hops, .en.
