Apple mosaic virus, apathogen of stone and pome fruits and hazelnut worldwide, shows great variability in its biological, serological and molecular properties. The coat protein sequences of fifteen ApMV variants from different hazelnut varieties and the ‘Granny Smith’ apple variety were obtained in Turkey. The phylogenetic analyses of the sequences of the Turkish isolates and of additional sequences of other ApMV variants from the NCBI database indicates the existence of different ApMV groups in the world. The sequences obtained from hazelnut revealed slightly different nucleic acid and amino acid composition compared to the sequences obtained from apples in Turkey and from the different locations in the world.
