Abstract
An almost complete sequence of the RNA genome of tobacco necrosis virus (TNV) strain A has been determined. The genome organization is very similar to that of carnation mottle virus (CarMV) and turnip crinkle virus (TCV). The 5'-proximal open reading frame (ORF) encodes a 23-kDa protein and read-through of its amber codon into the second ORF is presumably used for the translation of a 82-kDa protein. The third large ORF encodes the 30-kDa coat protein. Two small ORFs are located upstream and one immediately downstream of this coat protein cistron. Extensive sequence similarity was found between the TNV 82-kDa protein and the putative polymerases of TCV, CarMV, cucumber necrosis virus (CNV), maize chlorotic mottle virus (MCMV), red clover necrotic mosaic virus (RCNMV), and barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV). The TNV coat protein is very similar to southern bean mosaic virus (SBMV) capsid protein. Of the predicted small proteins only a 7.9-kDa protein shows some sequence similarity with a corresponding protein of MCMV, CarMV, and TCV. The others are unique to TNV. Except for the first four nucleotides at the 5' end no homology was found with the RNA of STNV (satellite of TNV).
