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)
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)
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)
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)
Here, we report complete genome sequences of grapevine yellow speckle viroid 1 (GYSVd1) and hop stunt viroid (HSVd), members of the family Pospiviroidae, assembled from the transcriptome data generated from Ixeridium dentatum plants. To our knowledge, this is the first report of GYSVd1 and HSVd in I. dentatum.
We determined the complete genome sequence of a South Korean (SK) isolate of Brugmansia mosaic virus (BruMV), which has recently been proposed to be a member of a new species in the genus Potyvirus. The genomic RNA of BruMV isolate SK is 9781 nucleotides in length (excluding the 3′-terminal poly (A)) and shares complete nucleotide and polyprotein amino acid… (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)
RNA from a Chinese cabbage plant (Brassica campestris ssp. pekinensis) showing leaf malformation and mottling was labeled and hybridized to a DNA chip capable of detecting plant viruses and viroids. Probes specific for beet mild yellowing virus (BMYV) and beet western yellows virus (BWYV) yielded positive results, suggesting that the plant was infected by a… (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)
The complete genome sequence of a South Korean isolate of Rehmannia mosaic virus (ReMV) infecting Rehmannia glutinosa was determined through next-generation sequencing and Sanger sequencing. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a natural infection of R. glutinosa by ReMV in South Korea.
