The nucleotide sequence analysis of the visna-related South African Ovine Maedi Visna virus (SA-OMVV) demonstrates extensive genetic polymorphism among ovine lentiviruses. Differences between visna virus and SA-OMVV proteins range from 8.5 to 35% mismatched amino acids. Moreover, there is a new open reading frame (orf W) in the central part of the genome. A phylogenetic history calibrated by the divergence and isolation dates of these two ovine lentiviruses shows that radiation of the… CONTINUE READING
