Schematic structure of the NJAY phytoplasma EcDNA sequenced in this study. The first nucleotide of Rep is designated as position 1. The arrows indicate the putative ORFs and their direction of transcription. The DNA region corresponding to a remnant part of ORF3 in the non coding region is delimited and expanded on the top of the figure showing the potential translated sequence aligned to part of ORF3 in the EcDNA of the Onion Yellows phytoplasma (accession AB479514.1).
