AbstractCitrus leaf blotch virus (CLBV) is a member of the genus Citrivirus, in the family Betaflexiviridae. It has been reported CLBV could infect kiwi, citrus and sweet cherry in China. Of 289 citrus samples from six regions of China, 15 were detected to be infected with CLBV in this study. The complete genome of four isolates of CLBV was obtained from Reikou in Sichuan (CLBV-LH), Yura Wase in Zhejiang (CLBV-YL), Bingtangcheng in Hunan (CLBV-BT), Fengjie 72-1 in Chongqing (CLBV-FJ), respectively. While they all represented 8 747 nucleotides in monopartite size, excluding the poly(A) tail, each of the isolates coded three open reading frames (ORFs). Identity of the four isolates ranged from 98.9 to 99.8% to each other and from 96.8 to 98.1% to the citrus references in GenBank by multiple alignment of genomes. A phylogenetic tree based on the genome sequences of available CLBV isolates indicated that the four isolates were clustered together, suggesting that CLBV isolates from citrus in China did not have obvious variation. This is the first report of the complete nucleotide sequences of CLBV isolates infecting citrus in China.
