Banana bunchy top virus (BBTV), a multi-component circular ssDNA virus, replicates via a dsDNA intermediate that also serves as a template for virion sense transcription. Seven virus-derived transcripts have been previously identified and analysed in BBTV-infected bananas by northern analysis and 3' rapid amplification of cDNA ends (3' RACE). In this study, we have used RNA ligase-mediated rapid amplification of 5' cDNA ends (RLM-RACE) to complete the mapping of the BBTV gene transcripts and have now fully mapped the transcribed regions of each BBTV component and effectively defined the upstream regulatory region.

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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
