A cDNA clone of beet yellows viral RNA expressed the viral coat protein gene inE. coli. The sequence of the 2724 nucleotide insert revealed three open reading frames, the 3′ of which was shown to be the coat protein cistron. This cistron is expressed inE. coli, in spite of there being no obvious ribosome binding site upstream.
