Complete genome sequence of peanut virus C, a putative novel ilarvirus
We determined the complete genome sequence of a putative novel ilarvirus, tentatively named “peanut virus C” (PVC), identified in peanut (Arachis hypogaea). The three segmented genomic RNA molecules of PVC were 3474 (RNA1), 2925 (RNA2), and 2160 (RNA3) nucleotides in length, with five predicted open reading frames containing conserved domains and motifs that are typical features of ilarviruses. The three genomic RNAs shared nucleotide sequence similarity (74% identity and 93% query coverage for RNA1, 75% identity and 85% query coverage for RNA2, and 72% identity and 70% query coverage for RNA3) with the most closely related ilarvirus, parietaria mottle virus. These results suggest that PVC is a novel member of the genus Ilarvirus in the family Bromoviridae.
