Abstract

This study reports on the complete genome sequence of , the type member of the genus . The genome is 17 919 nt in size and contains 13 open reading frames (ORFs). Previously, the sequence of 13 154 nt of the 3′-terminal of the genome was reported. The newly sequenced portion contains a 158 nt 5′ UTR, a single papain-like protease and a methyltransferase-like (MT) domain. ORF1a encodes a large polypeptide with a molecular mass of 245 kDa. With a predicted +1 frameshift, the large fusion protein generated from ORF1a/1b would produce a 306 kDa polypeptide. Phylogenetic analysis using MT domains further supports the creation of the genus for mealy-bug-transmitted viruses in the family .
