Complete Genome Sequence of a Novel Human Betapapillomavirus Isolated from a Skin Sample

Genome Announc. 2017 Mar 30;5(13):e01642-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01642-16.


We report the genetic characterization of a new papillomavirus (HPV_MTS1) isolated and fully cloned from a skin swab. The L1 open reading frame of HPV_MTS1 was 85% identical to its closest human papillomavirus (HPV) type 80, which belongs to the species beta-2 of the genus Betapapillomavirus, hence qualifying it as a new HPV type.
