A mycovirus previously identified in brown discolored fruiting bodies of the cultivated mushroom Flammulina velutipes was characterized. We tentatively named the virus the F. velutipes browning virus (FvBV). Purified FvBV particles contained two dsRNA genomes (dsRNA1 and 2). The complete sequence of dsRNA1 was 1,915 bp long, containing a single open reading frame (ORF) that encoded 580 amino acids of a putative 66-kDa RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp). dsRNA2 was 1,730 bp long containing a… CONTINUE READING
