Abstract

The complete nucleotide sequence of peach virus D (PeVD) from Prunus persica was determined. The PeVD genome consists of 6,612 nucleotides excluding the 3' poly(A) tail and contains a single open reading frame coding for a polyprotein of 227 kDa. Sequence comparisons and phylogenetic analysis revealed that PeVD is most closely related to viruses in the genus Marafivirus, family Tymoviridae. The complete nucleotide and CP amino acid sequences of PeVD were most similar (51.1-57.8% and 32.2-48.0%, respectively) to members of the genus Marafivirus, suggesting that PeVD is a new member of this genus.
