The present study on molecular characterization of human papillomaviruses occurring in Central Brazil, describes two variants each of HPV-53 and HPV-58 and one variant of HPV-66 detected in samples from smears of women showing cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade II (CIN II). Samples were assayed by PCR using MY09/MY11 consensus primers, followed by restriction fragment length polymorphism typing. The five isolates showed atypical restriction fragment length profile and MY09/MY11 L1 PCR… CONTINUE READING
