Two double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) segments of a virus with a bipartite genome identified in fig (Ficus carica L.) and denoted Fig cryptic virus (FCV) were cloned and sequenced. Viral dsRNAs are 1696 bp (RNA-1) and 1415 bp (RNA-2) in size. RNA-1 contains a single ORF (1419 nt) potentially encoding a 54 kDa protein and comprising the conserved amino acid motifs of the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) domain of species of the genus Alphacryptovirus. Its full-length amino acid sequence has the… 
Discovery and molecular characterization of a new cryptovirus dsRNA genome from Japanese persimmon through conventional cloning and high-throughput sequencing
TLDR
Virus-specific primers for RT-PCR, designed in the CP cistron, detected viral RNAs also in symptomless persimmon trees sampled from the same geographical area of SSPI, thus proving that PeCV infection may be fairly common and presumably latent.
GENETIC VARIABILITY OF RNA-1, RNA-2 AND RNA-3 OF FIG MOSAIC VIRUS ISOLATES FROM TUNISIA
TLDR
The preliminary comparative analysis conducted on three RNA segments of FMV highlighted that RNA-3, which codes for the viral nucleoprotein, is the most conserved, being subjected to a strong negative selection.
Complete nucleotide sequence of a novel strain of fig fleck-associated virus from China
TLDR
Results indicate that FFkaV-CN is a novel strain ofFFkaV with a genome organization somewhat different from what was reported for FFka V-Italy.
Phylogenetic analysis of partial sequences from Fig mosaic virus isolates in Turkey
Fig mosaic virus (FMV), which was described recently, is the only characterized causal agent of fig mosaic disease (FMD). It has six RNA segments and belongs to the Bunyaviridae family. In order to
Molecular Identification of Fig Cryptic Virus and Fig Fleck-Associated Virus in Turkey
TLDR
It can be concluded that, fig trees from the most important fig growing regions of Turkey are infected by FCV and FFkaV and it is instrumental to overview of the viral control strategies for fig plantations in Turkey.
First report of fig cryptic virus on fig in Russia
TLDR
This is the first report of FCV in Russia expanding the information on its geographical distribution and, as FCV is symptomless on F. carica, symptoms of mosaic disease may be due to mixed infection with FMV.
The structure of a plant-specific partitivirus capsid reveals a unique coat protein domain architecture with an intrinsically disordered protrusion
TLDR
It is shown that a disordered region at the apex of the protrusion is not required for capsid assembly and represents a hypervariable site unique to, and characteristic of, the plant-specific partitivirus coat proteins that enables mutualistic relationships with diverse plant hosts.
Partial Nucleotide Sequence of the Family Bunyaviridae Associated with a Mosaic-Diseased Fig. in North Egypt
TLDR
Electron microscope observations of thin-sectioned tissues from symptomatic leaves showed Double Membrane Bodies characteristic for FMV particles compared with symptomless leaves, and the sequence and phylogenetic analysis indicated that the Egyptian FMV isolate was closely related to other FMV isolates, especially the Italian and Arkansas ones with 80%similarity.
Structure of a Plant-Specific Partitivirus Capsid Reveals a Novel Coat Protein Architecture with a Hypervariable Protrusion
TLDR
It is shown that a disordered region at the apex of the protrusion is not required for capsid assembly and represents a hypervariable site characteristic of the plant-specific partitiviruses, suggesting a structural basis for the acquisition of additional functions by partitvirus coat proteins that enables mutualistic relationships with diverse plant hosts.

Complete nucleotide sequence of four RNA segments of fig mosaic virus
TLDR
Based on molecular, morphological and epidemiological features, FMV appears to be very closely related to PPSMV and MRSV, which seem to be eligible for classification in the proposed genus Emaravirus, which, in turn, may find a taxonomic allocation in the family Bunyaviridae.
Complete nucleotide sequences and genome characterization of a novel double-stranded RNA virus infecting Rosa multiflora
TLDR
The three double-stranded RNAs detected in Rosa multiflora plants showing rose spring dwarf (RSD) symptoms are suggested to constitute the genome of a novel cryptic virus infecting roses; the name Rosa multifloa cryptic virus (RMCV) is proposed.
Molecular characterization and detection of a tripartite cryptic virus from rose.
TLDR
Interestingly, this group of viruses appears to be phylogenetically closer to mycoviruses belonging in the genus Partitivirus than to plant-infecting cryptovirus, indicating that it may be quite common in rose germplasm.
Nucleotide sequence of the tripartite Fragaria chiloensis cryptic virus and presence of the virus in the Americas
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis showed that FCCV is related most closely to members of the fungi-infecting Partitivirus genus rather thanMembers of the plant-infected Alphacryptovirus, providing a possible insight into the evolution of cryptic viruses.
Complete nucleotide sequences of three dsRNA segments from Raphanus sativus-root cv. Yipinghong with leaf yellow edge symptoms
TLDR
Results suggest that more than one partitivirus was co-infecting radish leaves and that the smaller of the two dsRNA bands is actually a doublet consisting of two co-migrating ds RNA segments.
A closely related group of RNA-dependent RNA polymerases from double-stranded RNA viruses.
TLDR
There is now a group of dsRNA viruses of lower eucaryotes whose RDRPs are detectably similar to each other, and the origin appears to be common descent from one or more noninfectious viruses of a progenitor cell, an origin that predates the differentiation of protozoans and fungi.
IDENTIFICATION OF A SECOND MEMBER OF THE FAMILY CLOSTEROVIRIDAE IN MOSAIC-DISEASED FIGS
TLDR
A double-stranded RNA recovered from a fig tree of Algerian origin (F3) showing chlorotic mottling of the leaves and clearing of the second and third veins was recovered, and sequence analysis demonstrated that the sequenced 625 bp fragment was part of a closteroviral HSP70 gene.
Detection of grapevine leafroll‐associated closterovirus III by molecular hybridization
TLDR
Two 32P-labelled cDNA clones denoted p16ds and p23ds were successfully used as probes for detecting GLRaV III sequences in grapevine extracts from leaves and petioles, or cortical tissues, and in Northern blots, the same probe hybridized also with smaller dsRNA components, which may be replicative forms of subgenomic RNAs.
A rapid method for sequencing the 5′- and 3′-termini of double-stranded RNA viral templates using RLM-RACE
TLDR
A protocol is described that permits rapid, inexpensive and reliable synthesis and amplification of 5'- and 3'-terminal cDNAs using viral double-stranded (ds) RNA templates and can be used on viral genomic dsRNA or viral ds RNA replicative forms when the virion RNA is unavailable.
Cryspovirus: a new genus of protozoan viruses in the family Partitiviridae
TLDR
A new genus, Cryspovirus, has been approved for this family of viruses with bisegmented dsRNA genomes and isometric virions in which the two genome segments are packaged separately and used as templates for semiconservative transcription by the viral polymerase.
