The CTV dtec-RT-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for detection of all serotypes of Citrus tristeza virus species by using qPCR. Citrus tristeza virus is a viral species of the Closterovirus genus and consists of a single strand of positive sense RNA enclosed by two types of capsid proteins. CTV causes the most economically damaging disease to plant genus, Citrus. The disease has led to the death of millions of Citrus trees all over the world and has rendered other millions useless for production. The virus is transmitted most efficiently by the brown citrus aphid.
