Abstract

The Arabis mosaic virus (ArMV) is one of the causative agent of the grapevine fanleaf disease, one of the most widespread and damaging viral diseases of grapevine. Recently, the ArMV has been detected in Spanish vineyards, and its determination and molecular characterization was undertaken. To this aim, the nucleotide sequence of the genomic RNAs 1 and 2 of the first isolate of ArMV infecting grapevine detected in Spain (ArMV-DU13) has been determined. The ArMV-DU13 genomic sequences were compared to the corresponding sequences of other isolates of ArMV, or nepoviruses. The most divergent genes among ArMV isolates were the X1 and VPg genes on the RNA 1, and the 2A gene on the RNA 2, with identity levels at the amino acid level of 78% (X1 and VPg) or 69% (2A) between the most distant isolates. Interestingly, the VPg genes were identical between the two grapevine isolates ArMV-Du13 and –NW, suggesting a possible implication of the host. The phylogenetic analysis of the RNA 2 showed that the Spanish isolate was close to Grapevine fanleaf virus isolates. The analysis of the full length RNA 2 suggests a recombination event between ArMV-DU13 and GFLV-GHu isolates between nucleotides 54 and 586 in the ArMV-DU13 isolate. Altogether, these results confirm the high variability between isolates of ArMV, and will be helpful to design more appropriate and reliable molecular diagnostic techniques for the control of this emerging virus in Spain.
