Citation: Wintermantel, W.M., Hladky, L.L., Gulati Sakhuja, A.N., Li, R., Liu, H., Tzanetakis, L.E. 2009. The complete nucleotide sequence and genome organization of Tomato infectious chlorosis virus: A distinct crinivirus most closely related to Lettuce infectious yellows virus. Archives of Virology. 154:1335-1341.

Interpretive Summary: The complete nucleotide sequence of Tomato infectious chlorosis virus (TICV) was determined and compared with other members of the genus Crinivirus. RNA 1 is 8271 nucleotides long with three open reading frames and encodes proteins involved in replication. RNA 2 is 7913 nucleotides long, and encodes eight proteins common within the genus Crinivirus involved in genome protection, movement and other functions yet to be identified. Similarity between TICV and other criniviruses varies throughout the genome but TICV is related more closely to Lettuce infectious yellows virus than to any other crinivirus, thus identifying a third group within the genus.
