First full length sequence of Bean common mosaic virus from Australia

Saqib, M., Nouri, S., Jones, R.A.C. and Jones, M.G.K.ORCID: 0000-0001-5002-0227 (2008) First full length sequence of Bean common mosaic virus from Australia. In: 8th Australasian Plant Virology Workshop, 19-22 November 2008, Rotorua, New Zealand.


In the agricultural region near Kununurra in the Kimberly region of Western Australia, Bean common mosaic virus (BCMV; genus potyvirus) was found infecting wild Macroptilium atropurpureum (purple bush bean, siratro) and Phaseolus vulgaris (borlotti bean, common bean). Whole genome sequencing of BCMV from M. atropurpureum was undertaken to provide the first full length sequence for this virus from Australia. Amplified PCR products were cloned and sequenced. The genomic sequence (10054bp) obtained was submitted to GenBank (Accession EU761198). This sequence and those of other BCMV sequences already on GenBank, were used to construct phylogenetic trees of (i) full length genomes (nucleotides), and (ii) coat protein (CP) sequences (amino acids). The results from the genomic and CP analyses indicate that the Australian BCMV isolate studied is closely related to BCMV isolates previously reported from the American continent.
