We have identified a bipartite begomovirus infecting Jute mallow (Corchorus capsularis, Tilliaceae) in Vietnam using novel degenerate PCR primers. Analysis of this virus, which we have named Corchorus yellow vein virus (CoYVV), showed that it was more similar to New World begomoviruses than viruses from the Old World. This was based on the absence of an AV2 ORF, the presence of an N-terminal PWRsmaGT motif in the coat protein and phylogenetic analysis of the DNA A and DNA B nucleotide and deduced amino acid sequences. We provide evidence that CoYVV is probably indigenous to the region and may be the remnant of a previous population of New World begomoviruses in the Old World.

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.
