Identification of a novel nanovirus in parsley
Archives of Virology 164 (7), 1883-1887
Abstract: Using next-generation sequencing to characterize agents associated with a severe stunting disease of parsley from Germany, we identified a hitherto undescribed virus. We sequenced total RNA and rolling-circle-amplified DNA from diseased plants. The genome sequence of the virus shows that it is a member of the genus Nanovirus, but it lacks DNA-U4. In addition to the seven genomic DNAs of the virus, we identified a second DNA-R and seven distinct alphasatellites associated with the disease. We propose the name "parsley severe stunt associated virus" (PSSaV) for this novel nanovirus.
