Peach latent mosaic viroid (PLMVd), the causal agent of peach latent mosaic disease, has been sequenced and found to be a circular RNA molecule of 337 nucleotide residues, which adopts a branched conformation when it is folded in the model of lowest free energy. PLMVd exhibits limited homologies with other viroids and some satellite RNAs, but it does not have any of the central conserved sequences characteristic of the subgroups of typical viroids. However, a segment of approximately one-third… CONTINUE READING
