Abstract

AbstractIn this study, the complete genome sequence of bovine papillomavirus (BPV) type 15 (BPV Aks-02), a novel putative BPV type from a skin sample of a cow in southern Xinjiang, China was determined by collecting cutaneous neoplastic lesion, followed by DNA extraction and amplicon sequencing. The complete genome consisted of 7189 base pairs (G+C content of 42.50%) that encoded five early (E8, E7, E1, E2, E4) and two late (L1 and L2) genes. The E7 protein contained a consensus CX2CX29CX2C zinc-binding domain and an LxCxE motif. The nucleotide sequence of the L1 open reading frame (ORF) was related mostly (99%) to the L1 ORF of putative type BAPV-3 reference strain from GenBank. Phylogeneti..
