Abstract : Tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV) and its related viruses are prone to recombination. It was reported that random homologous recombination between 20% diverging TYLCV related species is rarely deleterious and may be associated with a fitness advantage. Indeed, TYLCV-IS76, a recombinant between the 20% divergent TYLCV and tomato yellow leaf curl Sardinia virus (TYLCSV), exhibited a higher fitness than that of parental viruses. As this typical fitness advantage was observed with TYLCV-IS76 representatives of different pedigrees, it was thought that it is induced by beneficial intra-genomic interactions rather than by specific mutations. This hypothesis was further supported with TYLCV-IS141, a TYLCV recombinant with a short TYLCSV inherited fragment of around 141 nts, slightly longer than that of TYLCV-IS76. Indeed, the typical fitness advantage was detected irrespective of the position of the recombination breakpoint (loci 76 or 141) and the sequences of the TYLCV and TYLCSV inherited fragments.
