The complete genome sequence of a novel virus, provisionally named tobacco virus 1 (TV1), was determined, and this virus was identified in leaves of tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) exhibiting leaf mosaic and yellowing symptoms in Anhui Province, China. The genome sequence of TV1 consists of 15,395 nucleotides with 61.6 % nucleotide sequence identity to mint virus 1 (MV1). Its genome organization is similar to that of MV1, containing nine open reading frames (ORFs) that potentially encode proteins… 
Identification of rehmannia virus 1, a novel putative member of the genus Closterovirus, from Rehmannia glutinosa
Molecular and phylogenetic analyses of the genome and encoded protein sequences strongly support that the identified virus is a new species of the genus Closterovirus in the familyclosteroviridae.
Complete genome sequence of platycodon closterovirus 1, a novel putative member of the genus Closterovirus.
This study is the first report of the complete genome sequence of Pla CV1 infecting P. grandiflorus in the Republic of Korea, andylogenetic analysis of HSP70h sequences places PlaCV1 alongside other members of the genus Closterovirus in the family Closterviridae.
A new closterovirus in Alcea rosea identified by small RNA deep sequencing
Results indicate that Alcea rosea virus 1 is a member of a new species of the genus Closterovirus, which is a conserved and specific degradation mechanism of a target RNA by virus-derived small interfering RNAs in eukaryotic organisms.
Molecular Detection of Cucumber Mosaic Virus and Tobacco Mosaic Virus Infecting African Nightshades (Solanum scabrum Miller)
The two viruses cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) and tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) are among the major viruses that constrain the production of African nightshade (ANS). The ANS provides high proportions of
Viral suppressors from members of the family
RNA silencing is an evolutionarily homology-based gene inactivation mechanism and plays critical roles in plant immune responses to acute or chronic virus infections, which often pose serious threats

Ecogenomic survey of plant viruses infecting Tobacco by Next generation sequencing
This study describes the discovery of a consortium of plant viruses infecting Tobacco that are broadly distributed in Anhui province of China and demonstrates the effectiveness of NGS in identifying plant viruses without a prior knowledge of the virus and the genetic diversity that enhanced mixed infection.


Beet yellows closterovirus: complete genome structure and identification of a leader papain-like thiol protease.
The 348K protein of BYV is longer than the putative replicases of the most closely related viruses by about 1300 amino acids distributed between two unique regions, one at the N-terminus, and the other in the central portion.
Molecular characterization of a closterovirus from carrot and its identification as a German isolate of Carrot yellow leaf virus
The major coat protein gene of CCV was expressed in Escherichia coli for raising an antiserum and gave a Western blot reaction with a reference sample of a Carrot yellow leaf virus (CYLV) isolate from the Netherlands, suggesting that CCV is a German isolate of CYLV.
Genetic analysis of the cell-to-cell movement of beet yellows closterovirus.
A unique protein quintet including three dedicated movement proteins (p6, p64, and HSP70h) and two structural proteins is required to potentiate the cell-to-cell movement of a closterovirus.
Comparative and functional genomics of closteroviruses
The evolutionary processes that have shaped the complex and fluid genomes of the large RNA viruses might be similar to those that have been involved in evolution of genomic complexity in other divisions of life.
Characterization of a Novel Member of the Family Closteroviridae from Mentha spp.
Genome and phylogenetic analysis placed Mint virus 1 in the genus Closterovirus and transmission studies have identified the mint aphid, Ovatus crataegarius, as a vector for this new member of the genusclosterov virus.
A Closterovirus (Family: Closteroviridae) Isolated from Tobacco Crops in Northern Greece (Macedonia).
The results show that the virus isolated is the first member in the Closteroviridae reported to naturally infect N. tabacum, and was transmitted in a semi-persistent manner.

Phylogenetic analyses of their replicative genes as well as the conserved HSP70 demonstrate that closteroviruses co-evolved with their insect vectors, resulting in three major lineages, i.e. aphid-, mealybug-, and whitefly-transmitted viruses.
"Rattlesnake" structure of a filamentous plant RNA virus built of two capsid proteins.
A 75-nm segment at one end of the 1370-nm filamentous viral particle was found to be consistently labeled with both types of antibodies, thus indicating that p24 is indeed the second capsid protein and that the closterovirus particle, unlike those of other plant viruses with helical symmetry, has a "rattlesnake" rather than uniform structure.
The 64-Kilodalton Capsid Protein Homolog of Beet Yellows Virus Is Required for Assembly of Virion Tails
The dual function of p64 in tail assembly and BYV motility is revealed and the concept of the virion tail as a specialized device for BYV cell-to-cell movement is supported.
