Abstract

Sequencing of the monopartite RNA genome of a Fijian isolate of Taro vein chlorosis virus (TaVCV) confirmed that it is a definitive rhabdovirus with most similarity to members of the genus Nucleorhabdovirus. The TaVCV 12 020 nt negative-sense RNA genome contained six ORFs in the antigenomic sequence, equivalent to the N, P, 3, M, G and L genes that have been identified in other rhabdoviruses. The putative gene products had highest similarity to those of the nucleorhabdovirus Maize mosaic virus. A characteristic 3'-AAUUCUUUUUGGGUUGU/A-5' sequence was identified in each of the intergenic regions and the TaVCV leader and trailer sequences comprised 140 and 61 nt, respectively. Assignment of TaV..
