Abstract

The molecular phylogeny of macropodid herpesviruses 1 and 2 (MaHV-1 and -2) has been investigated by cloning and sequencing the genes encoding glycoprotein B from both viruses. Phylogenetic reconstructions based on the putative amino acid sequences of glycoprotein B indicate that MaHV-1 and -2 are most closely related to the subfamily Alphaherpesvirinae. Within the Alphaherpesvirinae, MaHV-1 and -2 are closely associated with those herpesviruses that infect primates. This phylogenetic relationship does not fit the constraints of the proposed co-evolution theory described for other members of the Alphaherpesvirinae which have mammalian hosts.
