Complete genome sequence of currant latent virus (genus Cheravirus, family Secoviridae)
The complete nucleotide sequences of RNA1 and RNA2 of the Holandský červený strain of currant latent virus (CuLV) were determined using next-generation sequencing. The RNA1 is predicted to encode a polyprotein 2124 amino acid long with RdRp motifs. The RNA2 is predicted to encode a polyprotein 957 amino acid long with homology to the capsid protein of apple latent spherical virus and cherry rasp leaf virus. Phylogenetic analysis confirms that CuLV is a new distinct member of the genus Cheravirus.
