Inter- and intramolecular recombinations in the Cucumber mosaic virus genome related to adaptation to alstroemeria
Journal of Virology 76 (8), 4119-4124
Abstract: In four distinct alstroemeria-infecting cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) isolates, additional sequences of various lengths were present in the 3' nontranslated regions of their RNAs 2 and 3, apparently the result of intra- and intermolecular recombination events. Competition experiments revealed that these recombined RNA 2 and 3 segments increased the biological fitness of CMV in alstroemeria.
