Formatted abstract
The complete nucleotide sequence of the nucleocapsid (N) gene of lettuce necrotic yellows virus (LNYV), the type member of the genus Cytorhabdovirus of plant rhabdoviruses, has been determined from cDNA clones of both the viral genomic and messenger RNAs. The previously identified N gene was adjacent to the 3' leader RNA and began at position 91 from the 3' end of the LNYV genome. Analysis of the sequence showed that the N mRNA contained a 78- nt 5' untranslated region, followed by a 1377-nt open reading frame (ORF) encoding a 459-amino-acid protein. This ORF was similar in size to the N protein ORFs of other rhabdoviruses. However, little if any direct sequence homology was found with N protein sequences of other rhabdoviruses. Short amino acid sequences were found to be conserved between the N proteins of LNYV and sonchus yellow net virus (SYNV), a member of the genus Nucleorhabdovirus of plant rhabdoviruses. Among them, a sequence of 24 amino acids which was similar between LNYV and SYNV N proteins corresponded to a region with high homology between isolates of vesicular stomatitis virus and rabies virus N protein sequences, the type members of the genera Vesiculovirus and Lyssavirus of animal rhabdoviruses, respectively.
