An undescribed virus with isometric particles and a diameter of ca. 30 nm was identified in diseased samples of wild and cultivated Rubus species and molecularly characterized. Its genome was 6,463 nt, excluding the 3′-terminal poly(A) tail, and contained a single open reading frame coding for a 2,035-amino-acid-long precursor polypeptide (p223). The amino terminal portion of p223, identified as a replication-associated polyprotein, contained conserved motifs of methyltransferase, endopeptidase… CONTINUE READING
