Nucleotide sequence of the genome of eggplant mosaic tymovirus.

Osorio-Keese M.E., Keese P., Gibbs A.

The sequence of the RNA genome of an isolate of eggplant mosaic tymovirus from Trinidad (EMV-Trin) has been determined. The genome is 6330 nucleotide residues in length and contains three open reading frames; two overlapping genes, whose initiation codons are separated by seven nucleotide residues (nucleotide residues 102-2051 and 109-5628) near the 5' terminus, and the virion protein gene, which is near the 3' terminus (nucleotide residues 5633-6199). The genomes of EMV-Trin and turnip yellow mosaic tymovirus have the same genomic organization and similar nucleotide and encoded amino acid sequences. The nucleotide residues adjacent to the initiation codons of tymoviral overlapping genes have closely similar sequences which may form a weak stem-loop secondary structure that regulates their translation.
