Persistence of non-integrated viral DNA in bovine cells transformed in vitro by bovine papillomavirus type 2

Abstract

Papillomaviruses induce benign tumours (warts) in their natural hosts. Several bovine papillomaviruses (BPV 1–5) have been described1–5. BPV 2 represents the virus isolated from classical cutaneous fibropapillomas found on the neck and shoulders of cattle5.
