Mengual-Chulia, Beatriz; Wibbelt, Gudrun; Gottschling, Marc; Bravo, Ignacio G. (2018): Two Novel, Distantly Related Papillomaviruses Isolated from Healthy Skin of the Timor Deer (Rusa timorensis). In: Microbiology Resource Announcements, Vol. 6, No. 24
Full text not available from 'Open Access LMU'.


We report the complete genome sequences of Rusa timorensis papillomavirus 1 (RtimPV1) and Rusa timorensis papillomavirus 2 (RtimPV2), isolated from hair follicles of asymptomatic skin from the same Timor deer specimen. RtimPV1 and RtimPV2 are evolutionarily only distantly related. RtimPV1 lacks a canonical E2-binding site, and RtimPV2 does not carry an E6 gene.
