Sequence Analysis of the Canine Adenovirus 2 Fiber-Encoding Gene

Gene. 1995 Jul 4;159(2):279-80. doi: 10.1016/0378-1119(95)00110-r.


The gene coding for the fiber protein (Fip) of canine adenovirus type 2 (CAV-2) has been cloned and sequenced. The putative protein has 80% sequence similarity with the CAV-1 Fip. The observed differences may contribute to the known differences in cell tropism and virulence of the two types of CAV.
