A Portuguese isolate of Aspergillus fumigatus was found to contain three double-stranded (ds) RNA elements ranging in size from 1.1 to 1.8 kbp and comprising the genome of a strain of Aspergillus fumigatus partitivirus 1 (AfuPV-1) previously thought to contain only the two largest dsRNA elements. The sequence of the smallest dsRNA element is described here, completing the sequence of the AfuPV-1 genome. Sequence analysis of the element revealed an open reading frame encoding a protein of unknown function similar in size and distantly related to elements previously identified in other members of the family Partitiviridae.
