Abstract

Infectious full-length cDNA clones from the genomic RNAs of a subgroup II cucumber mosaic cucumovirus strain (Trk7) were obtained. Sequence analysis of the whole genome revealed strong homology (99%) to the genome of Q-CMV, the only subgroup II strain whose entire genomic nucleotide sequence had been available in the database, and an overall 75% homology to those of subgroup I strains. We provide sequence comparisons of different parts of 1a, 2a and 2b proteins of Cucumovirus species, and propose phylogenetic trees based on these protein sequences.
