Information on the entire genome of TT virus (TTV) has been scarce. The circular ssDNA genome of a variant (isolate name SANBAN) that we sequenced was only 56.7% homologous to the prototype isolate (TA278), with even lower homology at the amino acid level: 34.2% for ORF1 and 39.7% for ORF2. Regarding the ORF1, SANBAN was only very distantly related to the six major TTV genotypes reported to date. In partial ORF2 sequences determined on 44 isolates taken together, TTV has a broad range of… CONTINUE READING
