Determination of Complete Genome Sequence of Korean Isolate of Potato virus X
Sun Hee Choi, Ki Hyun Ryu
The complete nucleotide sequences of a Korean isolate of Potato virus X (PVX-Kr) has been determined. Fulllength cDNA of PVX-Kr has been directly amplified by long template reverse transcription and polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) using virus specific 5`-end primer and 3`-end primer, and then constructed in a plasmid vector. Consecutive subclones of a full-length cDNA clone were constructed to identify whole genome sequence of the virus. Total nucleotide sequences of genome of PVX-Kr were 6,435 excluding one adenine at poly A tail, and genome organization was identical with that of typical PVX species. Comparison of whole genome sequence of PVX-Kr with those of European and South American isolates showed 95.4-96.8% and 77.4-77.9%, in nucleotide similarity, respectively. Sequenced PVX-Kr in this study and twelve isolates already reported could be divided into two subgroups in phylogeny based on their complete nucleotide sequences. Phylogenetic tree analysis demonstrated that PVX-Kr was clustered with European and Asian isolates (Taiwan, os, bs, Kr, S, X3, UK3, ROTH1, Tula) in the same subgroup and South American isolates (CP, CP2, CP4, HB) were clustered in the other subgroup.
