Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli causes severe food-borne disease in the guts of humans and animals. Here, we report the high-quality draft genome sequence of E. coli NCCP15658 isolated from a patient in the Republic of Korea. Its genome size was determined to be 5.46 Mb, and its genomic features, including genes encoding virulence factors, were analyzed.
The complete genomic sequence of lychnis mottle virus (LycMoV) from a Lychnis cognata plant was determined. LycMoV has a bipartite genome consisting of RNA1 (7,428 nt) and RNA2 (3,734 nt). Species in the family Secoviridae are demarcated based on their amino acid similarities in the protease-polymerase and coat protein. In LycMoV, these proteins share 90 %(More)
The complete nucleotide sequence of a new barley polerovirus, tentatively named barley virus G (BVG), which was isolated in Gimje, South Korea, has been determined using an RNA sequencing technique combined with polymerase chain reaction methods. The viral genomic RNA of BVG is 5,620 nucleotides long and contains six typical open reading frames commonly(More)
A total of nine contigs related to caulimovirus-like sequences were detected using high-throughput paired-end RNA sequencing. An attempt to find the plant sample infected with this type of virus identified the medicinal plant Atractylodes macrocephala Koidzumi showing mild mottle symptoms. Subsequently, the complete DNA genome sequence of the Atractylodes(More)
The complete genome of a putative new endornavirus infecting hot peppers (Capsicum annuum) was determined to be 14,729 nt in size, including 12 cytosines at the 3′ end. The hot pepper-infecting virus has the highest nucleotide sequence similarity (94 % query cover and 72 % identity) to bell pepper endornavirus (BPEV) isolated from the cultivar Yolo Wonder(More)
The genome of tetterwort vein chlorosis virus (TVCV) from South Korea has been completely sequenced. Its genomic organization resembles those of other criniviruses, with several new features, indicating that TVCV is a member of a new species in the genus Crinivirus, family Closteroviridae. RNA1 contains 8467 nucleotides, with at least four opening reading(More)
Tobacco ringspot virus (TRSV, genus Nepovirus), causes severe diseases in soybean and tobacco plants. TRSV-induced bud blight disease significantly reduced both the yield and quality of soybeans. The function of the encoded viral gene product involved in TRSV infection was unclear due to the limitation of reverse genetics studies on the viral genome. Here,(More)
Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascades support the flow of extracellular signals to intracellular target molecules and ultimately drive a diverse array of physiological functions in cells, tissues, and organisms by interacting with other proteins. Yet, our knowledge of the global physical MAPK interactome in plants remains largely fragmented.(More)
To examine the possibility of horizontal gene transfer between transgenic potatoes and microorganisms in potato fields, the gene flow from transgenic potatoes containing nucleoside diphosphate kinase 2 (NDPK2) gene to microorganisms in soils was investigated. The soil samples collected from the potato fields from March to October in 2007 were examined by(More)
A peach tree (Prunus persica) showing yellowing and mild mottle symptoms was analyzed using high-throughput RNA sequencing to determine the causal agent. A total of nine contigs similar to Little cherry virus 1 (LChV-1) were produced, and all the contigs showed nucleotide sequence identity (lower than 83 %) and query coverage (higher than 73 %) with LChV-1.(More)
