The nucleotide sequences of full-length infectious clones of two symptomatic and host range variants (MSV-Ns and MSV-Nm) of the Nigerian strain of maize streak virus (MSV) have been determined and shown to differ by only three nucleotides. MSV-Ns produced symptoms in infected maize plants sooner and the streaks were wider and more chlorotic than those of MSV-Nm; variant MSV-Ns also had a wider host range within the Gramineae. None of the three nucleotide differences resulted in amino acid… CONTINUE READING
