Abstract The complete nucleotide sequence of Bean yellow mosaic virus (BYMV) gladiolus isolate GDD was determined and compared to broad bean isolates BYMV-MB4 and BYMV-S. The BYMV-GDD genome (9528 nt) was more similar to BYMV-MB4 (9532 nt) than to BYMV-S (9547 nt), which has "atypical" symptom expression and host range. The greatest variability occurred in the 5' untranslated region, P1 protein, and NIa-VPg protein, the N-terminal two thirds of HC-Pro, and the C-terminal one third of P3. Each of these regions has been correlated with symptom or host differences between isolates of other potyviruses, and may contribute to the "atypical" nature of BYMV-S.
