Bong Choon Lee, Yeon Kyu Hong, Do Yeon Kwak, Sung Tae Park, Jo Im Choi, Key Woon Lee
The coat protein gene of Korean isolate of Rice stripe virus (RSV-Kr) was cloned and its nucleotide sequence was determined. Total RNA was extracted from infected leaves and RSV viral RNA was detected by using RT-PCR with specific primer of coat protein gene. The result of RT-PCR showed a specific band. Purified RT-PCR products of coat protein gene were ligated into the pGEM-T Easy plasmid vector and cloned cDNA was obtained for nucleotide sequence determination. Coat protein gene of RSV-Kr consisted of 969 bp long encoding a protein of 322 amino acids. RSV-Kr showed 94%-99% sequence identities to that of Japanese- and Chinese isolates.
Key Words: Coat protein, Rice stripe virus, sequence
