A lambda ZAP II cDNA library was constructed by cloning cDNA prepared from a high molecular weight double-stranded RNA (dsRNA, ca. 18 kb) isolated from grapevine leafroll associated closterovirus-3 (GLRaV-3) infected tissues. This cDNA library was immuno-screened with GLRaV-3 coat protein specific polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies and three immuno-positive clones were identified. Analysis of nucleotide sequences from these clones revealed an open reading frame (ORF) which was truncated at the end; the remainder of this ORF was obtained by sequencing a fourth clone that overlapped with one of the immunopositive clones. A total of 2028 bp was sequenced. The putative GLRaV-3 coat protein ORF, 939 bp, encodes a protein (referred to as p35) with a calculated of 34 866. Multiple alignment of the p35 amino acid sequence with coat protein sequences from other clostero-viruses revealed that the consensus amino acid residues (R and D) of filamentous plant viruses are preserved in the expected locations. The GLRaV-3 coat protein gene was then engineered for sense and antisense expression in transgenic plants. Transgenic Nicotiana benthamiana plants that contain the sense GLRaV-3 coat protein gene produced a 35 kDa protein that reacted with GLRaV-3 antibody in Western blot.
