Simian acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (SAIDS) in macaque monkeys is caused by type D retroviruses; three independent virus isolates are identified as SRV-1 (SAIDS retrovirus-serotype 1), SRV-2, and MPMV (Mason-Pfizer monkey virus). Virions from these three isolates have serologically related core antigens, but distinct surface proteins. Also, SRV-2 is unique since it apparently induces retroperitoneal fibromatosis in addition to SAIDS. The complete DNA sequence of molecularly cloned SRV-2… CONTINUE READING
