Abstract

We report here the presence of a novel double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) virus in an isolate (R0959) of the fungus Rhizoctonia cerealis , the causal agent of sharp eyespot of wheat in China. Sequence analysis showed that the dsRNA segment is 17,486 bp long and contains a single open reading frame (ORF) with the potential to encode a protein of 5,747 amino acids. The predicted protein contains conserved motifs of putative viral methyltransferase, helicase 1, and RNA-dependent RNA polymerase. Sequence similarity and phylogenetic analysis clearly place it in a distinct species within the genus Endornavirus , family Endornaviridae , and therefore we propose its name to Rhizoctonia cerealis endornavirus 1 (RcEV1). This is the first report of the full-length genomic sequence of a dsRNA mycovirus in R. cerealis .
