Abstract

The genus Tobamovirus (Virgaviridae) comprises 33 accepted species with the recent addition of eight new viruses and is divided in to three subgroups based on the origin of assembly of the virion and host range. Within the subgroup 1 tobamoviruses the orchid-associated tobamovirus was hypothesized to be a chimeric derivative of recombinations between genome fragments from subgroup 3 and 1. Recombination events involving RdRp, movement and coat protein genes are recorded within subgroup 1 and 2. However natural recombinations have not previously been reported between subgroup 3 tobamoviruses. The organization and phylogenetic analyses of the complete genome and the different ORFs placed the new isolate within the Ribgrass mosaic virus clade of subgroup 3 tobamoviruses. Recombination detection analyses indicated that the isolate was a chimeric genome with fragments of high similarity to Ribgrass mosaic virus (RMV) strains NZ-439 (HQ667978) and Actinidia-AC (GQ401365.1) infecting herbaceous Plantago sp. and woody Actinidia spp., respectively. The recombinant differed across the whole genome by 3-8 % from other published RMV genomes. In this investigation we report an intra-specific recombination between RMV strains NZ-439 (HQ667978) and Actinidia-AC (GQ401365.1), in the replicase component between viral-methyltransferase and viral-helicase regions, resulting in a novel RMV strain FSHS (JQ319720.1) that represents the first described natural recombinant within the RMV cluster of subgroup 3 tobamoviruses.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 23 February 2016.
All research outputs
#5,846,235
of 8,073,149 outputs
Outputs from Virology Journal
#1,172
of 1,643 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#187,399
of 289,087 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Virology Journal
#49
of 56 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,073,149 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 24th percentile – i.e., 24% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,643 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.5. This one is in the 22nd percentile – i.e., 22% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 289,087 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 29th percentile – i.e., 29% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 56 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 10th percentile – i.e., 10% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
