A novel canine papillomavirus, CfPV-2, was cloned from a footpad lesion of a golden retriever. Unlike the known canine oral papillomavirus (COPV), which has a double-stranded DNA genome size of 8607 bps, the genome of CfPV-2 is 8101 bps. Some of this size difference is due to an abbreviated early-late region (ELR), which is 1200 bps shorter than that of COPV. However, CfPV-2 has other differences from COPV, including the presence of an E5 ORF between the E2 gene and the ELR and an enlarged E4… CONTINUE READING
