A type D-related retrovirus has been demonstrated in enzootic nasal tumors (ENTs) of sheep and goats. This retrovirus, ENT virus (ENTV), has antigenic cross-reactivity with the jaagsiekte sheep retrovirus (JSRV), which is associated with a contagious lung tumor of sheep (sheep pulmonary adenomatosis). Here, we present the first report of nucleic acid sequence from ENTV which confirms, at the nucleic acid level, that this retrovirus is related to JSRV yet apparently distinct from it.
