New insights into the genetic structure and variability of grapevine leafroll-associated viruses (GLRaVs) gained through worldwide efforts in the last decade or so, and the production and use of new sets of serological reagents, have provided the solid foundation on which the present revision of the taxonomic structure of the family Closteroviridae, and the genus Ampelovirus in particular, is based. A comparative examination of the amino acid sequence divergence of three taxonomically relevant… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Novel variants of grapevine leafroll-associated virus 4 and 7 detected from a grapevine showing leafroll symptoms
TLDR
A generic nested RT-PCR for detection of the gene for the of heat shock protein 70 homolog (HSP70h) of members of the family Closteroviridae detected a clear positive amplification from cultivar Chiliaki Chjornyj introduced from Russia in 1967 and planted at the Grape and Persimmon Research Station, NIFTS.
Characterization of Actinidia virus 1, a new member of the family Closteroviridae encoding a thaumatin-like protein
TLDR
A new member of the family Closteroviridae was detected in Actinidia chinensis grown in Italy, using next generation sequencing of double-stranded RNA, with a structure similar to the unclassified persimmon virus B.
An Analysis of the Complete Genome Sequence and Subgenomic RNAs Reveals Unique Features of the Ampelovirus, Grapevine leafroll-associated virus 1.
TLDR
This study provided a foundation for further elucidation of the comparative molecular biology of closteroviruses infecting grapevines and developed a reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction and restriction fragment length polymorphism method to distinguish GLRaV-1 variants in vineyards.
Ampeloviruses Associated with Grapevine Leafroll Disease: A New Group of Viruses in India
TLDR
The grapevine leafroll disease caused by different ampeloviruses, their geographical distribution, characterization, diversity, management strategies and also discusses about the future course of works to be taken are described.
An assemblage of divergent variants of a novel putative closterovirus from American persimmon
TLDR
Deep-sequenced analysis of nucleic acids extracted from leaf tissue of an American persimmon and subsequent-sequencing analyses uncovered at least four distinct closterovirus-like molecules, suggesting that the four identified viruses could be divergent variants in a single host plant.
Molecular Characterization of the Complete Coding Sequence of Olive Leaf Yellowing-Associated Virus
TLDR
Genome organization and phylogenetic relationships of olive leaf yellowing-associated virus (OLYaV) with other members of the Closteroviridae family were determined and a thaumatin-like protein (ORF2) was identified in the OLYaV genome, suggesting they could represent a new genus in the family.
Characterization and complete genome sequences of two novel variants of the family Closteroviridae from Chinese kiwifruit
Two distinct closterovirus-like genome sequences (termed AdV-1 v1 and v2) were identified in Actinidia chinensis var. deliciosa ‘Miliang-1’ that had no disease symptoms using high-throughput
Intra-species recombination among strains of the ampelovirus Grapevine leafroll-associated virus 4
TLDR
Genome-wide analyses showed for the first time that recombinantion can occur between distinct strains of GLRaV-4 resulting in the emergence of genetically stable and biologically successful chimeric viruses.
Identification of rehmannia virus 1, a novel putative member of the genus Closterovirus, from Rehmannia glutinosa
TLDR
Molecular and phylogenetic analyses of the genome and encoded protein sequences strongly support that the identified virus is a new species of the genus Closterovirus in the familyclosteroviridae.
Molecular characterization of a grapevine leafroll-associated virus 4 from Slovenian vineyards.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses show that Slovenian variant clusters together with other corresponding strains of GLRaV-4 are found in Slovenian vineyards, and great variability of the N-terminal part of the CP sequence is shown indicating that this area of the genome is not suitable for molecular detection of the virus.

Molecular characterization and taxonomy of grapevine leafroll-associated virus 7
TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of an Albanian isolate of grapevine leafroll-associated virus 7 (GLRaV-7-Alb) was determined and the molecular properties of these three viruses differ sufficiently from those of members of the three extant genera of the family Closteroviridae to warrant their classification in a novel genus.
The family Closteroviridae revised
TLDR
The mealybug-transmitted species have been separated from the genus Closterovirus and accommodated in a new genus named Ampelovirus (from ampelos, Greek for grapevine), and the family now comprises three genera.

A grapevine accession of cv. Mavro from Cyprus showing mild leafroll symptoms and containing closterovirus- like virus particles failed to react with commercial antisera to Grapevine
Partial Molecular Characterization of a Czech Isolate of Grapevine leafroll-associated virus 3
TLDR
A Czech isolate was studied at the molecular level in order to extend data on molecular variability of the virus from the central European region and the phylogenetic position of the new and already characterized GLRaV-3 isolates within the Ampelovirus genus is discussed.

TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of an Albanian isolate of grapevine leafroll-associated virus 7 (GLRaV-7-Alb) was determined and closely resembles that of little cherry virus 1 and cordyline virus 1.
