Rosellinia necatrix megabirnavirus 1 (RnMBV1) W779 is a bi-segmented dsRNA virus and a strain of the type species Rosellinia necatrix megabirnavirus 1 of the family Megabirnaviridae. RnMBV1 causes severe reduction of both mycelial growth of Rosellinia necatrix in synthetic medium and fungal virulence to plant hosts, and thus has strong potential for virocontrol (biological control using viruses) of white rot. The structure of RnMBV1 was examined by cryo-electron microscopy and three-dimensional… Expand
Heterodimers as the Structural Unit of the T=1 Capsid of the Fungal Double-Stranded RNA Rosellinia necatrix Quadrivirus 1
TLDR
The RnQV1 Capsid is the first T=1 capsid with a heterodimer as an asymmetric unit reported to date and follows the architectural principle for dsRNA viruses that a 120-subunit capsid is a conserved assembly that supports ds RNA replication and organization. Expand
Characterization of a new megabirnavirus that confers hypovirulence with the aid of a co-infecting partitivirus to the host fungus, Rosellinia necatrix.
TLDR
Interestingly, RnPV1 accumulation appeared to be increased in co-infected fungal strain with two segments of RnMBV2 relative to singly infected fungal strains, while the individual viruses exhibited asymptomatic infections. Expand
Acquisition of functions on the outer capsid surface during evolution of double-stranded RNA fungal viruses
TLDR
The results indicate that the intimate virus-fungus partnership has altered the capsid genome-protective and/or receptor-binding functions in Rosellinia necatrix quadrivirus 1, indicating that Fungal virus evolution has tended to allocate enzyme activities to the virus capsid outer surface. Expand

Capsid Structure of dsRNA Fungal Viruses
TLDR
The atomic structure of the T = 1 capsids of four mycoviruses was resolved and it was found that these capsids show structural variations of the same framework, with 60 asymmetric or symmetric homodimers for ScV-L-A and PsV-F, respectively, monomers with a duplicated similar domain for PcV, and heterodIMers of two different proteins for RnQV1.

Structure and assembly of double-stranded RNA mycoviruses.
TLDR
Structural analysis has focused on dsRNA mycoviruses, which usually package their genome in a 120-subunit T=1 icosahedral capsid, with a capsid protein (CP) dimer as the asymmetric unit. Expand
Acquired Functional Capsid Structures in Metazoan Totivirus-like dsRNA Virus.
TLDR
This work presents the first atomic model of a metazoan dsRNA totivirus-like virus and the structure reveals three unique structural traits: a C-terminal interlocking arm, surface projecting loops, and an obstruction at the pore on the 5-fold symmetry axis. Expand
The infectious particle of insect-borne totivirus-like Omono River virus has raised ridges and lacks fibre complexes
TLDR
Omono River virus and IMNV have acquired an extracellular phase, and the structures at the five-fold axes may be significant in adaptation to cell-to-cell transmission in metazoan hosts. Expand

Partitivirus structure reveals a 120-subunit, helix-rich capsid with distinctive surface arches formed by quasisymmetric coat-protein dimers.
TLDR
This three-dimensional structure of a virus from the family Partitiviridae exhibits both similarities to and differences from the so-called "T = 2" capsids of other dsRNA viruses. Expand
Genome rearrangement of a mycovirus Rosellinia necatrix megabirnavirus 1 affecting its ability to attenuate virulence of the host fungus.
TLDR
This isolated strain of RnMBV1 with genome rearrangements had a newly emerged segment named dsRNAS1, but with loss of dsRNA2, which contains two ORFs of unknown function, suggesting that ds RNA2, while dispensable for virus replication, is required to reduce the virulence of R. necatrix. Expand
The T=1 Capsid Protein of Penicillium chrysogenum Virus Is Formed by a Repeated Helix-Rich Core Indicative of Gene Duplication
TLDR
The spatial arrangement of the α-helical core resembles that found in the capsid protein of the L-A virus, a fungal totivirus with an undivided genome, suggesting a conserved basic fold. Expand
Structure of Fusarium poae virus 1 shows conserved and variable elements of partitivirus capsids and evolutionary relationships to picobirnavirus.
TLDR
The structure of partitivirus Fusarium poae virus 1 is determined to a resolution of 5.6Å or better by electron cryomicroscopy and three-dimensional image reconstruction to support the suggestion that a phylogenetic subcluster of part itiviruses closely related to FpV1 should constitute a separate taxonomic genus.

Biological properties and expression strategy of rosellinia necatrix megabirnavirus 1 analysed in an experimental host, Cryphonectria parasitica.
TLDR
Intriguingly, whilst RnMBV1 reduced both virulence and growth rate in Δdcl-2, it attenuated virulence without affecting significantly other traits in EP155, which provides an additional example of C. parasitica serving as a versatile, heterologous fungus for exploring virus-host interactions and virus gene expression strategies.

Backbone trace of partitivirus capsid protein from electron cryomicroscopy and homology modeling.
TLDR
The CP backbone trace of a second fungal partitivirus is determined, determined in this case by electron cryomicroscopy and homology modeling, and a dimer-of-dimers assembly intermediate is again implicated. Expand

Results indicate that the W779 virus is a novel bipartite dsRNA virus with potential for biological control (virocontrol), named Rosellinia necatrix megabirnavirus 1 (RnMBV1), that possibly belongs to a new virus family. Expand

The crystal structure of the capsid protein, P1, is determined, revealing a flattened trapezoid subunit with an α-helical fold and fitting the crystal structure into the procapsid disclosed substantial conformational differences between the two P1 conformers. Expand

The results show that VP2, the only component of the virus icosahedral capsid, is homologous both to the capsid protein of positive-strand RNA viruses, like the T = 3 nodaviruses, and to the T + 13 capsidprotein of members of the Reoviridae family of dsRNA viruses. Expand
