Brief Report


Jasmine virus H (JaVH) is a novel virus associated with symptoms of yellow mosaic on jasmine. The JaVH genome is 3,867 nt in length with five open reading frames (ORFs) encoding a 27-kDa protein (ORF 1), an 87-kDa replicase protein (ORF 2), two centrally located movement proteins (ORF 3 and 4), and a 37-kDa capsid protein (ORF 5). Based on genomic and phylogenetic analysis, JaVH is predicted to be a member of the genus Pelarspovirus in the family Tombusviridae.



This research was supported by initial funding to HBMC from Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University and funding from the Major Agricultural Technology Extension of Tea Industry in the Fujian Province (KNJ-151053). The authors declare that no conflict of interest exists.
