The genome organization and affinities of an Australian isolate of carrot mottle umbravirus
Gibbs, M. J., Cooper, J. I., & Waterhouse, Peter M. (1996) The genome organization and affinities of an Australian isolate of carrot mottle umbravirus. Virology, 224(1), pp. 310-313.
The genomic sequence of an Australian isolate of carrot mottle umbravirus (CMoV-A) was determined from cDNA generated from dsRNA. This provides the first data on the genome organization and phylogeny of an umbravirus. The 4201-nucleotide genome contains four major open reading frames (ORFs). Analysis suggests that ORF2 encodes an RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, that ORF4 encodes a movement protein, and that the virus has no coat protein gene. The functions of ORFs 1 and 3 remain unknown. ORF2 is probably translated following ribosomal frameshifting. ORFs 3 and 4 are probably translated from a subgenomic mRNA. Sequence comparisons showed CMoV-A to be closely related to pea enation mosaic RNA2 NA2), but also to have affinities with the Bromoviridae. These findings shed light on the relationships between the luteoviruses, PEMV, and the umbraviruses and on the relationships between the carmo-like viruses and the Bromoviridae.
