Analysis of the corrected DNA sequence for the bovine papillomavirus type 4 (BPV4) genome revealed that there is no open reading frame (ORF) that might encode an E6 protein. The other two B subgroup bovine papillomaviruses, BPV3 and BPV6, were found to have the same arrangement of ORFs in this region as BPV4. Thus, we conclude that E6 functions are either not required by these viruses or are performed by another viral (or host) protein. Furthermore, the position that might be expected to be… 
Mutational analysis of the transforming protein E8 of bovine papillomavirus type-4 (BPV-4)
It is demonstrated that in addition to the ability of E8 to grow independently of anchorage, PalF cells expressing E8 lose gap junction intercellular communication (GJIC), can grow in low serum, and are not contact inhibited.
Characterization of novel bovine papillomavirus type 12 (BPV-12) causing epithelial papilloma
The whole genome was sequenced, and phylogenetic analysis illustrated that it should be classified as a member of the genus Xipapillomavirus, and BAA1 was designated as BPV-12 in this study.
Novel Bovine Papillomavirus Type Discovered by Rolling-Circle Amplification Coupled with Next-Generation Sequencing
The complete genome sequence of a new BPV type (BPV 04AC14) recovered from a papillomatous lesion is reported and maximum likelihood phylogenetic analyses revealed that this virus clusters with members of the Xipapillomavirus genus.
The genomes of the animal papillomaviruses European elk papillomavirus, deer papillomavirus, and reindeer papillomavirus contain a novel transforming gene (E9) near the early polyadenylation site
It is shown that EEPV E5 is the major oncogene in the E EPV genome when assayed in C127 cells, although it is less efficient in transformation than the E5 genes of bovine papillomavirus type 1, DPV, and RPV.
A mutational analysis of the transforming functions of the E8 protein of bovine papillomavirus type 4.
It is shown that the transforming functions of E8 can be segregated and that both the hydrophilic C-terminal tail and the residue at position 17 in the Hydrophobic domain are crucial for E8 functions and for the transactivation of the cyclin A promoter.
The role of exogenous p53 and E6 oncoproteins in in vitro transformation by bovine papillomavirus type 4 (BPV-4): significance of the absence of an E6 ORF in the BPV-4 genome.
16E6 confers anchorage-independence to BPV-4-transformed cells in a p53-independent fashion, indicating that 16E6 and mutant p53 are functionally equivalent in conferring immortality.
Phylogenetic analysis of 48 papillomavirus types and 28 subtypes and variants: a showcase for the molecular evolution of DNA viruses
An experimental approach that estimates the taxonomic and phylogenetic positions of newly identified papillomaviruses without viral isolation and complete genomic sequencing supports the type as a natural taxonomic unit, with subtypes and variants being expressions of minor intratype genomic diversity similar to that found in the natural populations of all biological species.
Multiple evolutionary mechanisms drive papillomavirus diversification.
The molecular data globally supports a complex evolutionary scenario for PVes, which is driven by multiple mechanisms but not exclusively by coevolution with corresponding hosts, and host-linked evolution appears plausible at shallow, rather than deeper, taxonomic levels.


A point mutational analysis of human papillomavirus type 16 E7 protein
The E7 open reading frame of human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV16) has been shown to be selectively retained in cervical tumors and to encode both transforming and trans-activating functions in murine
Reindeer papillomavirus transforming properties correlate with a highly conserved E5 region
The E5 ORF of RPV has the potential to encode a 44-amino-acid, exceptionally hydrophobic polypeptide which is very similar to the E5polypeptides of BPV-1 and deer and European elk papillomaviruses.
Translation of open reading frame E5 of bovine papillomavirus is required for its transforming activity.
Results constitute strong genetic evidence that translation of ORF E5 is required for efficient transformation of mouse C127 cells by bovine papillomavirus DNA.
The E5 transforming gene of bovine papillomavirus encodes a small, hydrophobic polypeptide.
The E5 polypeptide is the smallest viral transforming protein yet characterized; it had an apparent size of 7 kilodaltons and its predicted amino acid composition is very unusual; 68% of the amino acids are strongly hydrophobic and 34% are leucine.
The genomes of bovine papillomaviruses types 3 and 4 are colinear.
It is concluded that the genomes of bovine papillomavirus type 3 and BPV-4, both of which cause true epithelial warts, share the same physical organization but exhibit sequence divergence.
Mutational analysis of human papillomavirus type 16 E7 functions
The data suggest that regions 1 to 3 are required for its functions and that the meta-binding motifs in region3 are required to maintain a stable or functional structure of the E7 protein.
Mapping of Two Novel Transcripts of Bovine Papillomavirus Type 4
A cDNA library was synthesized using RNA from bovine papillomavirus type 4 (BPV-4)-induced papillomas that resulted in a temporary frameshift, abolished the translation termination codon of the E5a open reading frame (ORF), and introduced a new terminationcodon in the E4 ORF.
Cooperation between bovine papillomavirus type 4 and ras in the morphological transformation of primary bovine fibroblasts.
Primary bovine fibroblasts derived from foetal palate can be transformed by bovine papillomavirus type 4 DNA only in the presence of an activated ras gene, indicating that the virus does not encode
Transforming activity of a 16-amino-acid segment of the bovine papillomavirus E5 protein linked to random sequences of hydrophobic amino acids
The results reported here imply that much of the specific information necessary for cell transformation can be supplied by a subset of the carboxyl-terminal 16 amino acids of this protein.
