Occurrence of Chrysanthemum chlorotic mottle viroid in Chrysanthemum (Dendranthema grandiflorum) in Korea
Bong Nam Chung, Dong Chan Kim, Jeong Soo Kim, Jeom Deog Cho
Chrysanthemum chlorotic mottle viroid (CChMVd) isolates have been identified from chrysanthemum showing yellow spots or infected without symptom. They were 399-400 nucleotides length of RNA. CChMVd- SSHA6 (GenBank accession no. DQ450682) revealed a GAAA to UUUC substitution in positions 82-85 of CChMVd-MSIN34 (GenBank accession no. DQ402041). In vitro RNA transcripts with the complete CChMVd sequence were infectious and induced the typical CChMVd infection symptom of yellow spots in chrysanthemum cv. Sharotte. CChMVd caused reduction in growth in some cultivars, whereas some cultivars were not affected. This is the first report on the occurrence of CChMVd in chrysanthemum in Korea.
Key Words: Chrysanthemum chlorotic mottle viroid, Chry-santhemum, viroid
