Genome characterization of a new strain of peanut chlorotic streak virus causing chlorotic vein banding disease of groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) in India uri icon

abstract

  • The double-stranded DNA of the chlorotic vein banding isolate of peanut chlorotic streak caulimovirus (PC1SV-CVB), isolated from purified virus, resolved into circular and linear molecules similar to those of other caulimoviruses. A physical map of viral DNA was constructed, which showed the PCLSV-CVB DNA to be circular and composed of approximately 8.2 kbp. A number of restriction sites were found to be shared with a similar caulimovirus, PCLSV. Nevertheless, several differences between physical maps of the 2 viruses suggested that PCLSV-CVB should be considered as a distinct strain of PCLSV. Bam HI-cleaved PCLSV-CVB DNA was cloned into pUC 118 and was infectious when cleaved from the cloning vector and inoculated onto Vigna unguiculata (cowpeas)
