Comparative sequence analysis and serological and infectivity studies indicate that cocksfoot mild mosaic virus is a member of the genus Panicovirus

Ziegler, Angelika GND; Cowan, G.; Torrance, L.

The complete nucleotide sequence of the Phleum isolate of cocksfoot mild mosaic virus (CMMV-P) and the coat protein sequence of the cocksfoot isolate (CMMV-1) were determined. Comparative sequence analysis revealed a close relationship with Panicum mosaic virus (PMV; genus Panicovirus), and together with serological studies, the work supports the classification of CMMV in the family Tombusviridae, genus Panicovirus rather than, as is currently proposed, the genus Sobemovirus. A full-length cDNA clone was prepared, and RNA transcripts synthesised from cDNA were shown to be infectious when inoculated to Hordeum vulgare.
