The complete nucleotide sequences of the RNA2 of two isolates of Tomato infectious chlorosis virus (TICV, genus Crinivirus , family Closteroviridae ) from the United States and Spain, respectively, were determined. The sequences of both isolates were found to be nearly identical. TICV RNA2 consisted of 7,914 nucleotides in both isolates and contains eight open reading frames that encompass the Closteroviridae hallmark gene array represented by a heat shock protein 70 family homologue, a protein of 59 kDa, the major coat protein, and a divergent copy of the coat protein. Phylogenetic analysis suggested that TICV is most similar to Lettuce infectious yellows virus (LIYV), the type species of the genus Crinivirus .
