First report of a complete genome sequence for a begomovirus infecting Jatropha gossypifolia in the Americas

First report of a complete genome sequence for a begomovirus infecting Jatropha gossypifolia in... Jatropha gossypifolia is a weed that is commonly found with yellow mosaic symptoms growing along the roadside and in close proximity to cultivated crops in many farming communities in Jamaica. For the first time, the complete genome sequence of a new begomovirus, designated jatropha mosaic virus-(Jamaica:Spanish Town:2004) (JMV-(JM:ST:04)), was determined from field-infected J. gossypifolia in the western hemisphere. DNA-A nucleotide sequence comparisons showed closest identity (84 %) to two tobacco-infecting viruses from Cuba, tobacco mottle leaf curl virus-(Cuba:Sancti Spiritus:03) (TbMoLCV-(CU:SS:03)) and tobacco leaf curl Cuba virus-(Cuba:Taguasco:2005) (TbLCuCUV-(CU:Tag:05)), and two weed-infecting viruses from Cuba and Jamaica, Rhynchosia rugose golden mosaic virus-(Cuba:Camaguey:171:2009) (RhRGMV- (CU:Cam:171:09)) and Wissadula golden mosaic St. Thomas virus-(Jamaica:Albion:2005) (WGMSTV-(JM:Alb:05)). Phylogenetic analysis revealed that JMV-(JM:ST:04) is most closely related to tobacco and tomato viruses from Cuba and WGMSTV-(JM:Alb:05), a common malvaceous-weed-infecting virus from eastern Jamaica, and that it is distinct from begomoviruses infecting Jatropha species in India and Nigeria.
