To identify the viruses in tree peony plants associated with the symptoms of yellowing, leaf rolling, stunted growth, and decline, high-throughput sequencing of small RNA and mRNA was conducted from a single symptomatic plant. Bioinformatic analyses and reconstruction of viral genomes indicated mixed viral infections involving cycas necrotic stunt virus (CNSV), apple stem grooving virus (ASGV), lychnis mottle virus (LycMoV), grapevine line pattern virus (GLPV), and three new viruses designated as peony yellowing-associated citrivirus (PYaCV, Citrivirus in Betaflexiviridae), peony betaflexivirus 1 (PeV1, unclassified in Betaflexiviridae), and peony leafroll-associated virus (PLRaV, Ampelovirus in Closteroviridae). PYaCV was 8,666 nucleaotides (nt) in length, comprising three open reading frames (ORFs) and shared 63. Read More
