We recently described orang-utan hepadnavirus (OuHV) (Warren et al., Journal of Virology, 73, 7860-7865, 1999). Phylogenetic analyses indicated that the various isolates of OuHV can be divided into two genomic variants. Two representatives from each genomic cluster were analysed both molecularly and phylogenetically. Their genome organization was highly similar to other hepadnaviruses of apes and humans. The complete genome sequences of the two OuHV types had an overall 5% sequence difference… CONTINUE READING
