This study reports the first complete genome sequence of Piper yellow mottle virus (PYMoV, KC808712) identified in black pepper. The genome is 7,622 nucleotides long, possessing four open reading frames (ORFs). ORF1, ORF2 and ORF4 of PYMoV are reported as hypothetical proteins of unknown function with a predicted molecular mass of 15.7, 17.1 and 17.9 kDa, respectively. ORF3 of PYMoV encodes a polyprotein of 218.6 kDa and consists of a viral movement protein (MP), trimeric dUTPase, zinc finger, retropepsin, RT-LTR, and RNAse H. Detailed PYMoV genome analysis confirmed that it is a member of the family Caulimoviridae, genus Badnavirus. Fragments of two additional novel sequences resembling those found in members of the family Caulimoviridae were also identified in the black pepper sample, and the viruses from which they were derived were tentatively named Piper DNA virus 1 and 2. © 2013 Her Majesty the Queen in Right of United Kingdom.
