A putative circular single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) virus was recovered from Hypericum japonicum collected in Vietnam. The viral isolate was tentatively named Hypericum japonicum-associated circular DNA virus (HJasCV). HJasCV shares 58.7-65.4% nucleotide sequence identity with Sclerotinia sclerotiorum hypovirulence-associated DNA virus 1 (SsHADV-1) and(More)
The complete genome sequence of a monopartite begomovirus isolate TY01 was obtained from diseased Pouzolzia zeylanica plants exhibiting golden mosaic symptoms in Baise, Guangxi Province, China. It consisted of 2723 nucleotides (nt) and encoded two ORFs (CP and AV2) in the virion-sense DNA and five ORFs (AC1-AC5) in the complementary-sense DNA. Compared with(More)
A begomovirus isolate VN1 associated with symptomatic Hedyotis uncinella Hook. et Arn. from Vietnam was characterized. The virus, which we provisionally name H. uncinella yellow mosaic virus (HUYMV), has a monopartite genome of 2,749 nucleotides (nts). Pairwise comparisons of DNA-A sequences showed that HUYMV had a maximum nt sequence identity with Soybean(More)
RNA silencing is a conserved mechanism in plants that targets viruses. Viral small RNAs (vsiRNAs) can be generated from viral double-stranded RNA replicative intermediates within the infected host, or from host RNA-dependent RNA polymerases activity on viral templates. The abundance and profile of vsiRNAs in viral infections have been reported previously.(More)
Ralstonia solanacearum species complex is a devastating group of phytopathogens with an unusually wide host range and broad geographical distribution. R. solanacearum isolates may differ considerably in various properties including host range and pathogenicity, but the underlying genetic bases remain vague. Here, we conducted the genome sequencing of strain(More)
Cotton leaf curl Multan virus (CLCuMuV) is a Whitefly Transmitted Geminivirus (WTG) endemic to the India subcontinent and is notorious as a causal agent of cotton leaf curl disease (CLCuD), a major constraint to cotton production in south Asia. We found CLCuMuV infecting Hibiscus rosa-sinensis in Guangzhou, China in 2006. The spread and evolution of the(More)
Two monopartite begomoviruses were isolated from Pouzolzia zeylanica (L.) Benn. plants showing yellow mosaic symptoms in Gaoyao, Guangdong Province, China (GD1) and in Phu Tho, Vietnam (VN), respectively. A comparison of the complete genome sequence of GD1 (2,739 nucleotides [nt]) with VN (2,741 nt) indicated that they shared 86.2 % nt sequence identity.(More)
The complete genome sequence of a monopartite begomovirus isolate infecting Creek Premna (Premna serratifolia L.) plants that exhibited leaf curl, vein swelling, and enation symptoms in Nha Trang, Vietnam, was cloned and sequenced. It comprises 2,753 nucleotides (JQ793786) and has a typical organization of begomoviruses DNA-A with AV1 and AV2 open reading(More)
