Rotavirus is nonenveloped RNA viruses belonging to the family Reoviridae, genus Rotavirus; other members of the family Reoviridae include genera such as Orthoreovirus, Orbivirus, Coltivirus, Cypovirus
, Phytoreovirus, Aquareovirus, Oryzavirus, Seadornavirus, Idoreovirus, and Mycoreovirus .
from the South American oil-palm pest Norape argyrrhorea and its potential as a microbial control agent.
Sequences used in the phylogenetic analysis included the 136.6 KD protein of Nilaparvata lugens reovirus (NP_619777), 'B' spike structural protein of Fiji disease virus (YP_249761), hypothetical protein of Mal de Rio Cuarto virus (YP_956845), P4 protein of Rice black streaked dwarf virus (NP_620461), RNA polymerase of Nilaparvata lugens reovirus (NP_619776), Mal de Rio Cuarto virus (YP_956848), Fiji disease virus (YP_249762) and hypothetical protein (P1) from Rice black streaked dwarf virus (NP_620452), p3 of Heliothis armigera cypovirus 5 (YP_001883321), an unnamed protein product of Diadromus pulchellus idnoreovirus (CAA56651), VP1 RNA-dependent RNA polymerase of Infectious bursal disease virus (NP_690839), and a putative surface protein of Infectious bursal disease virus (CAI43281).
Multiple sequence alignments of predicted psyllidReo1 amino acid sequences resulted in 48% shared identity to RNA polymerase of NLRV, 39% identity to RNA polymerase of the MRCV, 38% identity to RNA polymerase of FDV, and 22% identities to p3 of Heliothis armigera cypovirus 5 (Ha-CPV5) (Fig.
