Infectious RNA transcripts derived from cloned cDNA of a pepino mosaic virus isolate

Infectious RNA transcripts derived from cloned cDNA of a pepino mosaic virus isolate For the first time, a full-length cDNA clone of the RNA genome of pepino mosaic virus (PepMV) was constructed. RNA was extracted from purified virions of isolate PepMV-Pa and used for cDNA synthesis. The full-length cDNA was produced as one 6.4-kb fragment representing the entire PepMV genome. This fragment was ligated into the pCR ® - XL-TOPO ® vector downstream of T7 RNA polymerase promoter, which was included in the 5′ primer sequence used for RT-PCR. The PepMV-Pa RNA transcripts obtained were infectious in different host plants, causing symptoms indistinguishable from those of the wild-type isolate. The presence and authenticity of the progeny virus were verified by ELISA, RT-PCR and nucleotide sequencing. Archives of Virology Springer Journals
