Polyclonal antiserum was raised against the peak viral fraction of a sucrose gradient from LRV1-4-infected cells and used in Western immunoblot analysis to identify viral proteins from various isolates. Consistent with this result, in vitro-translated protein from cloned RNA was immunoprecipitated with the same antiserum. The putative capsid at times appeared as a doublet; relative amounts of the two species varied, depending on the method of purification.
