Resumen

Cercospora kikuchii, fitopatógeno usual en plantas de soja, ocasiona deterioro en las cosechas. Su identificación precoz y correcta evitaría el uso indebido de plaguicidas y permitiría iniciar un tratamiento adecuado. Una técnica rápida, económica y de fácil ejecución es el Dot blot, capaz de reconocer la presencia de una proteína específica del género conocida como CFP (Cercosporin Facilitator Protein). El objetivo de este trabajo fue validar dicha técnica para garantizar la fiabilidad del resultado. Para ello, se procesaron 29 plantas de soja infectadas y 31 plantas sanas teniendo en cuenta una confianza deseada del 95% y un error permitido del 5%. La técnica presentó una sensibilidad diagnóstica del 93,3% y una especificidad diagnóstica del 96,7%. La eficacia fue del 95% y los valores predictivos positivo y negativo del 96,6 y el 93,5%, respectivamente. Estos resultados la postulan como una herramienta útil para detectar precozmente C. kikuchii en plantas de soja.

Abstract

Cercospora kikuchii is a common pathogen in soybean plants that causes crop spoilage. Its early and precise identification would prevent the misuse of pesticides and allow the initiation of an appropriate treatment. A quick, economical and easy-to-execute technique is the Dot blot, capable of recognizing the presence of a genus-specific protein called CFP (Cercosporin Facilitator Protein). The objective was to validate this technique to guarantee the reliability of the results. For that purpose, 29 infected soybean plants and 31 healthy plants were processed, taking into account a 95% desired confidence level and a permissible error of 5%. The technique provided a diagnostic sensitivity of 93.3% and a diagnostic specificity of 96.7%. The efficiency was 95% and positive and negative predictive values were 96.6% and 93.5%, respectively. These results postulate it as a useful resource for the early detection of C. kikuchii in soybean plants.
