The complete sequences of Fiji disease virus (FDV) genome segments 5 (S5), S6, S8 and S10 were obtained and comprised 3150nt, 2831nt, 1959nt and 1819nt, respectively. Each segment contained a single ORF which encoded putative proteins of 115kDa, 97kDa, 69kDa and 63.0kDa, respectively. The putative amino acid sequences encoded by S5 and S6 contained putative leucine zipper motifs while FDV S5 and S8 each contained an ATP-GTP-binding motif. At the amino acid level, FDV S5, S6, S8 and S10 showed most similarity to the corresponding segments of Rice black-streaked dwarf virus. Based on sequence similarities, it is predicted that FDV S8 encodes a minor core protein, while FDV S10 encodes an outer capsid protein. The evolutionary relationships of FDV to other reoviruses are discussed. The nucleotide sequence data for FDV S5, S6, S8 and S10 are available in the DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank databases under the accession numbers AY029521, AF356083, AY297693 and AY297694, respectively.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
