Genome Sequence of a Novel, Newly Identified Isolate of Guinea Pig Cytomegalovirus, the CIDMTR Strain

Genome Announc. 2013 Dec 26;1(6):e01052-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01052-13.


The sequence of a newly discovered isolate of guinea pig cytomegalovirus (GPCMV), the CIDMTR strain, was determined. The 232,778-nucleotide genome was generally well conserved with that of the 22122 reference strain, although some regions of substantial sequence divergence allowed annotation of strain-specific open reading frames encoding putative immune modulation gene products.
