Annotated Sequence Record


The complete genomic RNA sequence of a tentative new umbravirus from Patrinia scabiosaefolia, tentatively named “patrinia mild mottle virus” (PatMMoV), was determined. The genome of PatMMoV consists of 4,214 nucleotides and has a typical umbravirus genome organization with four open reading frames. BLAST searches showed that the complete nucleotide sequence of PatMMoV had the highest identity (72%; 50% query coverage) to Ixeridium yellow mottle-associated virus 2 (IxYMaV-2; an unclassified umbravirus). In addition, phylogenetic analysis and pairwise comparisons showed that PatMMoV and IxYMaV-2 were the most closely related and placed in the same clade within a group of umbraviruses. These results suggest that PatMMoV is a putative new member of the genus Umbravirus in the family Tombusviridae.
