Identification and characterization of a new coleviroid (CbVd-5)

Identification and characterization of a new coleviroid (CbVd-5) A viroid-like RNA was detected from coleus ( Coleus blumei ) in China. It consisted of 274 nucleotides and had 66% sequence identity with a member of the closest known viroid species. The predicted secondary structure is rod-shaped with extensive base pairing, and it has the conserved region characteristic of the genus Coleviroid . Two terminal sequences that are highly conserved among some members of the genus were also identified. The viroid-like RNA was successfully transmitted to coleus by slash-inoculation. This viroid was identified as a new member of the genus Coleviroid , and we tentatively propose the name Coleus blumei viroid 5 (CbVd-5). Archives of Virology Springer Journals
