The thymidine kinase gene of African swine fever virus was mapped in a 1.4-kb EcoRI-PstI fragment located in the left half of the Eco RI K fragment of African swine fever virus DNA by using degenerate oligonucleotide probes derived from regions of the thymidine kinase sequence conserved in several poxviruses, man, mouse, and chicken. The nucleotide sequence of this region revealed an open reading frame of 196 codons, whose translated amino acid sequence showed significant similarity to the… CONTINUE READING
