Construction of an infectious clone of simian foamy virus of Japanese macaque (SFVjm) and phylogenetic analyses of SFVjm isolates.


Foamy viruses belong to the genus Spumavirus of the family Retroviridae and have been isolated from many mammalian species. It was reported that simian foamy viruses (SFVs) have co-evolved with host species. In this study, we isolated four strains (WK1, WK2, AR1 and AR2) of SFV (named SFVjm) from Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata) in main island Honshu of… (More)
