Abstract

In addition to ss and ds genomic DNA, agroinoculation of plants with the Logan strain of the geminivirus beet curly top virus (BCTV) consistently resulted in production of subgenomic DNAs on initial passage. Single-stranded and dsDNA forms representing at least seven size classes (0.8 to 1.8 kb) of subgenomic DNA were observed in total DNA extracts from inoculated plants. Extracts from infected sugar beet and tomato contained variable but usually smaller amounts of subgenomic DNAs, suggesting that their production may be influenced by the host species. Restriction endonuclease mapping and partial nucleotide sequencing of three independent clones of a 1.5 kb size class indicated that this subgenomic DNA is produced from the standard viral genome by two separate deletion events. One deletion of 941 bp includes portions of the leftward open reading frames (ORFs) L1, L2 and L3, while the other deletion of 579 bp encompasses portions of the intergenic region and the rightward ORFs R1, R2 and R3. The data indicate that the 1.5 kb BCTV subgenomic DNA is a defective DNA that has retained ciselements essential for replication.
