The nucleotide sequence of human papillomavirus (HPV) 31 DNA (7912 bp) was determined and used to deduce the genomic organization of this cervical cancer-associated virus. Based on comparisons of the HPV 31 DNA sequence to other sequenced HPVs, HPV 31 is a typical papillomavirus most related to HPV 16 (70% identical nucleotides). The E6 and E7 open reading frames (ORF) of HPV 31 contain several potential DNA binding motifs (Cys-X-X-Cys), the locations of which are conserved in all HPVs. The E6… CONTINUE READING
