Pepper mottle virus (PepMoV)

This Potyvirus has been reported from the Americas and eastern Asia, where it infects green pepper (Capsicum) and other solanaceous crops. The symptoms include leaf mottling or mosaic, vein yellowing and leaf deformation. The virus can be transmitted mechanically and by aphids in a non-persistent manner. The RNA genome has a length of around 9700 nucleotides with a large open reading frame encoding a polyprotein.
