Abstract

This report describes the complete nucleotide sequence and genome organization of rose yellow vein virus (RYVV), a proposed new member of the family Caulimoviridae. The RYVV genome is 9314 bp in size and contains eight open reading frames (ORFs). ORFs 1, 2, and 3 have 22-38 % amino acid sequence similarity to known members of the family Caulimoviridae. The remaining ORFs have no significant amino acid sequence similarity to known viruses. Based on differences in its genome organization, its low sequence similarity to known members of the family Caulimoviridae, and the results of phylogenetic analysis, RYVV appears to be a distinct new member of this family.
