ABSTRACT Grapevine virus A (GVA) is implicated in the etiology of the rugose wood disease. The coat protein (CP) and the putative movement protein (MP) genes of GVA were cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli and used to produce antisera. Both the CP and the MP were detected with their corresponding antisera in GVA-infected Nicotiana benthamiana. The MP(More)
Grapevine virus A (GVA) carries five open reading frames (ORFs). Only the coat protein ORF has been experimentally identified as such; the roles of some of the other ORFs have been deduced by sequence homology to known genes (Minafra et al., 1997). The construction of a full-length, infectious clone of GVA has been previously reported. In an attempt to(More)
Grapevine virus A (GVA), a species of the recently established genus Vitivirus, consists of an approximately 7.3-kb single-stranded RNA genome of positive polarity, organized into five open reading frames (ORFs). The virus, which is closely associated with the grapevine rugose wood disease complex, has been poorly investigated genetically. We explored the(More)
Grapevine virus A (GVA), a species of the genus Vitivirus, consists of a approximately 7.4 kb single-stranded RNA genome of positive polarity, organized into five open reading frames (ORFs). In addition to grape varieties, GVA infects Nicotiana benthamiana plants and protoplasts. We engineered the genome of GVA as a vector that includes duplication of(More)
A full length cDNA clone of grapevine virus A (GVA) was constructed downstream from the bacteriophage T7 RNA polymerase promoter. Capped in vitro-transcribed RNA was infectious in Nicotiana benthamiana and N. clevelandii plants. Symptoms induced by the RNA transcripts or by the parental virus were indistinguishable. The infectivity of the in(More)
A previous functional analysis of the genome of grapevine virus A (GVA) was not conclusive as to the role of open reading frame 5 (ORF 5). This ORF encodes a 10-kDa protein (p10) carrying two distinct domains: a basic, arginine-rich domain and a zinc-finger domain. P10 was cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli, and was shown by northwestern assays to(More)
