AbstractTwo begomovirus-associated alphasatellites were isolated from okra and a malvastrum plant (Malvaceae) in Cameroon. The complete nucleotide sequences of the okra- and malvastrum-infecting alphasatellites were 1375 and 1416-1418 nucleotides, respectively, and both exhibited features characteristic of other alphasatellites. Based on pairwise sequence comparisons, these previously undescribed alphasatellites are members of distinct species in the genera Colecusatellite and Gosmusatellite and have been tentatively named "pepper yellow vein Mali alphasatellite" and "cotton leaf curl Gezira alphasatellite3", respectively. Taken together with previous studies, alphasatellites endemic to Cameroon appear to be more diverse and infect plants of many more species and families than currently recognized.
