We have cloned and sequenced cDNA transcribed from the 3′ 1239 nucleotides of the genomic RNA of a Western Australian isolate (MI) of bean yellow mosaic potyvirus (BYMV). This sequence contains 246 nucleotides of the NIb (replicase) gene and 819 nucleotides representing the entire coding region of the viral coat protein gene, followed by a 3′ non-coding region of 174 nucleotides. The coding region of the coat protein gene is identical in length (273 amino acids) to that already reported for other isolates of this virus. The sequence identities obtained for BYMV-MI and published sequences of BYMV isolates range between 85% and 92% for the coding region of the coat protein and 90% to 98% for the 3′ non-coding region. Likewise, the region of the NIb gene sequenced shows 99% and 97% sequence identity in the deduced amino acid and the nucleotide sequences, respectively.
