The 2326 nucleotides of the 3′-terminal region of Carnation vein mottle virus (CVMV) RNA, which included part of the nuclear inclusion b gene, the complete coat protein (CP) gene and the entire 3′-noncoding region (3′-NCR) were determined. The region encoding the CP gene is 843 nucleotides long and the deduced protein consists of 280 amino acids. A search of the EMBL and PIR databases showed that the amino acid sequence of CVMV CP most resembled that of Plum pox virus with a similarity of 67.9%. The 3′-NCR of CVMV RNA is 541 nucleotides long, second longest in the genus Potyvirus. These results indicate that CVMV is closely related to Plum pox virus but is a distinct species in the genus Potyvirus.

Key words : Carnation vein mottle virus, coat protein gene, identification.
