Abstract

To evaluate the relationship between tobacco stunt virus (TStV) and Lettuce big-vein virus (LBVV), we determined nucleotide sequences of the coat protein (CP) coding region of five TStV and three LBVV isolates and compared them with those of one Japanese and four Spanish isolates of LBVV. CP coding regions were identical in size and the nucleotide and amino acid sequence identities between TStV and LBVV were 95.6–96.5% and 97.2–98.7%, respectively. Phylogenetic analysis of nucleotide sequences indicated that TStV was very closely related to LBVV and a strain of LBVV rather than a distinct species.
