Porcine cytomegalovirus (PCMV) is an undesired pathogen in pigs intended for use as organ donors in xenotransplantation. In the present work, we characterized the first set of genes of PCMV. From a German isolate, the DNA polymerase (DPOL) locus was amplified and two complete open reading frames (ORF) as well as two partial ORFs including the complete DPOL gene and the 3′-end of the glycoprotein gB gene were sequenced. The deduced amino acid sequences showed the highest identities with the… CONTINUE READING
