Bhat, A I and Jain, R K and Varma, A and Lal, S K (2002) Nucleocapsid protein gene sequence studies suggest that soybean bud blight is caused by a strain of groundnut bud necrosis virus. Current Science, 82 (11). pp. 1389-1392.
The nucleocapsid protein (N) gene of a tospovirus associated with bud blight-affected soybean plants was cloned and sequenced. The N gene was comprised of 831 nucleotides encoding a protein of 276 amino acids. Sequence analyses showed that the gene was most closely related to groundnut bud necrosis virus (GBNV). The amino acid sequence identity with GBNV was 98%, while the identities with other tospo- viruses was in the range of 16–84%. On the basis of sequence identity, it is concluded that the soybean tospovirus should be regarded as a strain of GBNV.
