Nucleotide sequence and organization of eight 3' open reading frames of the citrus tristeza closterovirus genome.
The citrus tristeza closterovirus (CTV) RNA genome was cloned as cDNA generated from both CTV-specific double-stranded RNA and genomic RNA, and the sequence of the 3' 7292 nucleotides was determined.Expand

Comparative sequence analysis of the coat proteins of biologically distinct citrus tristeza closterovirus isolates
The genome of citrus tristeza closterovirus (CTV) consists of a 20 kb single-stranded RNA encapsidated in a 2000 nm long, flexuous particle. Double-stranded (replicative form) RNAs purified fromExpand

Unusual amino-terminal sequence repeat characterizes the capsid protein of dasheen mosaic potyvirus.
The 3'-terminal region of a Florida isolate of dasheen mosaic potyvirus (DMV-LA) genome including the coat protein (CP) gene was cloned and sequenced. Protease digestion was predicted to occurExpand

Variability in the length of the amino terminal sequence contributes to the capsid protein diversity among dasheen mosaic potyvirus isolates
SummaryWestern blot analysis of several dasheen mosaic virus isolates revealed molecular weight differences among their capsid proteins (CPs). Sequence analysis of the CP gene showed that the CP ofExpand
