The genome of a tomato-infecting begomovirus from Ranchi, India, was cloned, sequenced and analysed. The viral genome shared 88.3% sequence identity with an isolate belonging to the species Tobacco curly shoot virus (TbCSV), and this virus should therefore be considered a member of a new species, tentatively named Tomato leaf curl Ranchi virus (ToLCRnV). The DNA-β molecule, which had 74.5% sequence identity with tomato leaf curl Bangladesh betasatellite (ToLCBDB), is named tomato leaf curl Ranchi betasatellite (ToLCRnB). Phylogenetic analysis revealed that ToLCRnV is related to tomato leaf curl Bangladesh virus (ToLCBDV), tobacco curly shoot virus (TbCSV) and tomato leaf curl Gujarat virus (ToLCGV). An infectivity study with ToLCRnV established the monopartite nature of the viral genome, whereas inoculation with ToLCRnB resulted in increased symptom severity. ToLCRnV could transreplicate DNA-B of tomato leaf curl Gujarat virus (ToLCGV) and tomato leaf curl New Delhi virus (ToLCNDV), both in N. benthamiana and tomato, although DNA-B accumulation of was less than with the wild-type combinations. ToLCRnB could be efficiently replicated by DNA-A of both ToLCNDV and ToLCGV. A leaf disk assay suggests that DNA-A could transreplicate the homologous DNA-B and DNA-β more efficiently than the heterologous one.
