Comparison of the S RNA segments among Japanese isolates and Taiwanese isolates of Watermelon silver mottle virus

Comparison of the S RNA segments among Japanese isolates and Taiwanese isolates of Watermelon... The complete nucleotide sequences of the S RNA of two Japanese isolates of Watermelon silver mottle virus were determined. One was isolated from naturally infected watermelon and causes malformation on upper leaves of Tetragonia expansa . The other was isolated from melon and causes characteristic yellow necrotic lesions on upper leaves of T. expansa . The total nucleotide sequences of the S RNA of WS-O and WS-Y were 3553 nt and 3558 nt long, respectively. Both the nucleotide sequences and the deduced amino acid sequences of WS-O and WS-Y were quite similar even though the symptoms on T. expansa are quite different. They were also significantly similar to those of the Taiwanese isolates, Topso-W and Tospo-To. These results suggested that the Japanese isolates and the Taiwanese isolates of WSMoV were classified as one group not only serologically but also genetically. Within the S RNA sequences, the most variable region was the intergenic region between the N gene and the NSs gene. This was due to a 20 nt insertion between the Japanese isolates and the Taiwanese isolates. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Virology Springer Journals

Abstract

The complete nucleotide sequences of the S RNA of two Japanese isolates of Watermelon silver mottle virus were determined. One was isolated from naturally infected watermelon and causes malformation on upper leaves of Tetragonia expansa . The other was isolated from melon and causes characteristic yellow necrotic lesions on upper leaves of T. expansa . The total nucleotide sequences of the S RNA of WS-O and WS-Y were 3553 nt and 3558 nt long, respectively. Both the nucleotide sequences and the deduced amino acid sequences of WS-O and WS-Y were quite similar even though the symptoms on T. expansa are quite different. They were also significantly similar to those of the Taiwanese isolates, Topso-W and Tospo-To. These results suggested that the Japanese isolates and the Taiwanese isolates of WSMoV were classified as one group not only serologically but also genetically. Within the S RNA sequences, the most variable region was the intergenic region between the N gene and the NSs gene. This was due to a 20 nt insertion between the Japanese isolates and the Taiwanese isolates.
