    ..Several alignments of amino acid sequences showed less similarity between BrSMV and potyviruses than between different potyviruses. ..
  2. Koenig R, Beier C, Commandeur U, Lüth U, Kaufmann A, Lüddecke P. Beet soil-borne virus RNA 3--a further example of the heterogeneity of the gene content of furovirus genomes and of triple gene block-carrying RNAs. Virology. 1996;216:202-7 pubmed
    ..The two viruses are unrelated serologically. BSBV RNA 3 adds a further variant to the heterogeneity of the gene content of furovirus genomes and of triple gene block-carrying RNAs. ..
  3. Koenig R, Commandeur U, Loss S, Beier C, Kaufmann A, Lesemann D. Beet soil-borne virus RNA 2: similarities and dissimilarities to the coat protein gene-carrying RNAs of other furoviruses. J Gen Virol. 1997;78 ( Pt 2):469-77 pubmed
    ..No serological relationships were found between the particles of the two viruses, although more than 50% of the amino acid sequences of the putative CPs are identical. ..
  4. Koenig R, Pleij C, Beier C, Commandeur U. Genome properties of beet virus Q, a new furo-like virus from sugarbeet, determined from unpurified virus. J Gen Virol. 1998;79 ( Pt 8):2027-36 pubmed publisher
    ..BVQ belongs to the recently proposed genus Pomovirus; it shows evolutionary relationships to furoviruses in sensu stricto, peclu-, hordei-, tobra-, tymo-, tobamo-, carla- and potexviruses...
  5. Katul L, Timchenko T, Gronenborn B, Vetten H. Ten distinct circular ssDNA components, four of which encode putative replication-associated proteins, are associated with the faba bean necrotic yellows virus genome. J Gen Virol. 1998;79 ( Pt 12):3101-9 pubmed publisher
    ..All ten components of the FBNYV genome, except the Rep components C2 and C9, had closely related counterparts in the MDV genome. In spite of this similarity, FBNYV and MDV appear to be distinct virus species...
  6. Koenig R, Pleij C, Lesemann D, Loss S, Vetten H. Molecular characterization of isolates of anagyris vein yellowing virus, plantago mottle virus and scrophularia mottle virus -- comparison of various approaches for tymovirus classification. Arch Virol. 2005;150:2325-38 pubmed
    ..The usefulness of various species demarcation criteria for the classification of tymoviruses is discussed. ..
  7. Aritua V, Barg E, Adipala E, Vetten H. Sequence analysis of the entire RNA genome of a sweet potato chlorotic fleck virus isolate reveals that it belongs to a distinct carlavirus species. Arch Virol. 2007;152:813-8 pubmed
    ..Its closest relative is melon yellowing-associated virus, a proposed carlavirus from Brazil, with which it shares ORF5 and ORF6 amino acid sequence identities of 61 and 46%, respectively. ..
  8. Koenig R, Valizadeh J. Molecular and serological characterization of an Iranian isolate of Beet black scorch virus. Arch Virol. 2008;153:1397-400 pubmed publisher
    ..Beets infected by the Iranian BBSV did not show black scorch symptoms, but severe root beardedness. This might have been caused by BBSV or the simultaneously present beet necrotic yellow vein virus, or both together...
  9. Menzel W, Goetz R, Lesemann D, Vetten H. Molecular characterization of a closterovirus from carrot and its identification as a German isolate of Carrot yellow leaf virus. Arch Virol. 2009;154:1343-7 pubmed publisher
    ..Moreover, the antiserum gave a Western blot reaction with a reference sample of a Carrot yellow leaf virus (CYLV) isolate from the Netherlands, suggesting that CCV is a German isolate of CYLV...
