10 A diverse array of Begomovirus species (family Geminiviridae) can induce economically

11 important diseases in all major tomato-producing areas in Brazil (Fernandes et al., 2008).

12 Weeds of the Solanaceae family have been identified as important alternative hosts of the

13 viral species reported infecting tomato crops in the country (Barreto et al., 2013). In 2016,

14 about 10% of the plants of the weed Physalis angulata L. were observed with

15 begomovirus-like symptoms (apical chlorosis and stunting; Supplementary Fig. 1) around

16 and within tomato fields in Venda Nova do Imigrante–ES (Southeast Brazil). Leaf tissue

17 was collected from ten symptomatic and five healthy-looking plants, respectively. Total

18 DNA was extracted using the CTAB method in combination with organic solvents

19 (Boiteux et al., 1999). PCR assays with the universal begomovirus primers for DNA-A

20 and DNA-B detection (Rojas et al., 1993) were carried out using total genomic DNA

21 samples (20 ng/μL) as templates. Amplicons of ≈ 1,100 bp and ≈ 550 bp were obtained

22 only in the ten symptomatic samples, which are in agreement with the expected fragment

23 sizes of DNA-A and DNA-B from begomoviruses (Rojas et al. 1993). These amplicons

24 were directly Sanger sequenced at the Embrapa Vegetables Genomic Analysis

25 Laboratory. BLASTn analyses of the amplicon sequences indicated high nucleotide

26 identities (99%, 98%) with DNA-A and DNA-B of tomato severe rugose virus (ToSRV)

27 isolates (accession numbers JX415196, MG837739) from Brazil, suggesting the infection

28 of ToSRV in these plants. To fully prove the infection and to characterize the ToSRV

29 isolate associated with P. angulata, the DNA samples were submitted to rolling circle

30 amplification (RCA) method followed by Nanopore sequencing (Oxford Nanopore

31 Technologies), as previously described (Naito et al., 2019). The full-length DNA-A

32 component of one isolate obtained from P. angulata (MN059848) was 98% identical to

33 the DNA-A genome of a Brazilian ToSRV isolate from tomato (JX415196). The

34 complete DNA-B sequence from the P. angulata isolate (MN059849) was 96% identical


35 to the DNA-B genome of a tomato-infecting ToSRV isolate obtained in Southeast Brazil

36 (MG837739). The complete DNA-A component (2,592 nts) displayed all genomic

37 features of the New World species, with one virion-sense ORF (AV1) and four

38 complementary sense ORFs (AC1, AC2, AC3, and AC4). The complete DNA-B

39 component (2,571 nts) displayed two ORFs, virion-sense (BV1) and complementary

40 sense (BC1). The common regions of DNA-A and DNA-B components were identified

41 (183 nts in length) and the presence of iterons was confirmed. ToSRV is so far the most

42 prevalent tomato-infecting begomovirus in Brazil (Fernandes et al., 2008). To our

43 knowledge, this is the first report of natural infection of P. angulata by ToSRV,

44 expanding the viral host range to this widespread tropical and subtropical weed.

45 Considering that P. angulata may function as a relevant natural source of ToSRV

46 inoculum to tomato crops across tropical and subtropical regions, control of the weed

47 should be a part of the integrated management of ToSRV in tomato crops.
