An iterated sequence in the genome of banana bunchy top virus is essential for efficient replication
Herrera-Valencia, Virginia A., Dugdale, Benjamin, Harding, Robert M., & Dale, James L. (2006) An iterated sequence in the genome of banana bunchy top virus is essential for efficient replication. Journal of General Virology, 87, pp. 3409-3412.
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.
