Interpretive Summary: Biological and molecular properties of Hordeum mosaic virus (HoMV) are briefly described. Summary information include a general description of the virus and symptoms induced in infected plants, physical properties of the virus particle, organization of the viral genome, relationships with other related viruses, diagnosis, and agronomical importance.
Technical Abstract: A brief technical description of Hordeum mosaic virus (HoMV) is presented. Described are biological properties, genome organization, and phylogenetic relationships among HoMV and other potyvirus species. HoMV is designated as a definitive member of the genus Rymovirus within the plant virus family Potyviridae. Nucleotide sequence comparisons and serological assays indicate that HoMV is most closely related to the rymovirus Agropyron mosaic virus.
