Human papillomavirus (HPV) type 50, a type associated with epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) and only weakly related to other EV-specific HPVs

J Virol. 1989 Nov;63(11):4910. doi: 10.1128/JVI.63.11.4910-.1989.


The cloning and partial characterization of the genome of human papillomavirus type 50 is presented. Alignment of the genomic map with that of human papillomavirus type 5, with which it is only weakly related, was permitted by partial DNA sequence analysis.
