Annotated Sequence Record


We report a new circular DNA virus identified from a Chinese jujube tree showing mosaic-like symptoms. The genome of this virus is 7194 bp in length and contains five putative open reading frames (ORFs), all on the plus-strand of the genome. The genomic organization, primer binding sites and the sizes of the ORFs were similar to those reported for other badnaviruses (family Caulimoviridae), except for ORF3, which was split into ORF3a and ORF3b with a 70-nt intergenic region. Furthermore, this new virus shares low nucleotide sequence identity (<50%) with other members of the family Caulimoviridae. Consequently, we propose this virus as a new member of the family Caulimoviridae and refer to it as jujube mosaic-associated virus (JuMaV).
