Nucleotide sequence analysis shows that Rhopalosiphum padi virus is a member of a novel group of insect-infecting RNA viruses.

Abstract

Rhopalosiphum padi virus (RhPV) is an aphid virus that has been considered a member of the Picornaviridae based on physicochemical properties. The 10,011-nt polyadenylated RNA genome of RhPV was completely sequenced. Analysis of the sequence revealed the presence of two open reading frames (ORFs). The predicted amino acid sequence of ORF1, representing the… (More)
