Detection of Allexiviruses in the Garlic Plants in Korea
Eun Tag Lee, Bong Jin Koo, Ji Hue Jung, Moo Ung Chang, Sang Gu Kang
The genomes of different allexiviruses were isolated and cloned from virus-infected garlic plants (Allium sativum), which were collected from farm fields in the southern provinces in Korea. The partial nucleotide sequences of the genomes from different allexiviruses were clearly identified in the virus-infected garlic plants. The cloned partial genomes of viruses in garlic plants showed a greater than 90% homology to previously identified allexiviruses and classified into species of GarV-A, -B, -C, -D, -E, and -X, demonstrating that species of allexivirus found in the other countries in the world are also widely distributed in the garlic plants in Korea.
Key Words: Allexivirus, garlic plant, garlic virus, plant virus
