Genome Sequence of a Novel Human Gammapapillomavirus Isolated from Skin

Genome Announc. 2017 Jun 8;5(23):e00439-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00439-17.


A new human gammapapillomavirus (HPV_MTS2) genome was isolated and fully cloned from a skin swab. The L1 open reading frame of HPV_MTS2 was 79% and 80% identical to those of its closest relatives, HPV type 149 (species Gamma-7 of the genus Gammapapillomavirus) and HPV isolate Dysk2 (GenBank accession no. KX781281), respectively, thus qualifying it as a new HPV type.
