Zantedeschia mosaic virus causing leaf mosaic symptom in calla lily is a new potyvirus

Zantedeschia mosaic virus causing leaf mosaic symptom in calla lily is a new potyvirus A novel virus, Zantedeschia mosaic virus (ZaMV-KR), causing mosaic and malformation symptoms was isolated from calla lily ( Zantedeschia spp.) in Korea and its biological and molecular properties were characterized. The virus was distinct from Dasheen mosaic virus , an Araceae-infecting potyvirus, by serological and sequence analyses. Multiple alignments of the CP amino acid sequence between the virus and other potyviruses showed 51.8 to 62.1% identity. Phylogenetic analyses of the CP revealed that the virus could be clustered with Plum pox virus and Turnip mosaic virus . Sequence comparison of the CP gene between the virus and three other ZaMV isolates from Taiwan showed over 93.9% identity, and most of amino acids changes occurred in the N-terminal region. Sequence comparison of 3′ NTR revealed homology levels of 27.0 to 47.9% between the virus and other potyviruses. Our results support ZaMV as a distinct species of the genus Potyvirus .
