Genetic variability and phylogenetic analysis of hosta virus X

Genetic variability and phylogenetic analysis of hosta virus X Triple gene block 1 (TGB1) and coat protein (CP) sequences of 30 hosta virus X (HVX) isolates from Tennessee (TN), USA, were determined and compared with available sequences in GenBank. The CPs of all known HVX isolates, including those from TN, shared 98.3–100% and 98.2–100% nucleotide and amino acid sequence identity, respectively, whereas TGB1 shared 97.4–100% nucleotide and 97–100% amino acid sequence identity. TGB1 of TN isolates were all longer by one codon from that of a Korean isolate, which is the only sequence publicly available. Phylogenetic analysis of nucleotide and amino acid sequences of TGB1 and CP of all known HVX isolates, separately or combined, revealed a close relationship, suggesting that all of them are derived from a common ancestor. Phylogenetic analysis with the type member of each genus of the family Flexiviridae confirmed that HVX is a member of a distinct species of the genus Potexvirus .
