The 'emergence' of turnip mosaic virus was probably a 'gene-for-quasi-gene' event

Gibbs, Adrian; Nguyen, Huy D; Ohshima, Kazusato


Turnip mosaic potyvirus is a virus of brassicas that emerged from a lineage of monocotyledon-infecting potyviruses about 1000 years ago. In vivo and in silico studies all indicate that sites, primarily in its protein 3 (P3) and cylindrical inclusion protein (CI) genes, but also its small 6 kDa 2 protein (6K2) and genome-linked viral protein (VPg) genes, control host specificity in a dynamic way. It is most likely that non-unique combinations of transient viral genomic single nucleotide...[Show more]
