Abstract

The present study provides for the first time an extended investigation of individual genes located at the near-terminal right end of the genome of parapoxvirus bovis 1, (BPSV) strain B177 and (ORFV). Comparison of the respective DNA sequences of ORFV strain D1701 (9·9 kbp) and BPSV B177 (7·7 kbp) revealed a very similar organization of closely related genes transcribed in a rightward orientation. The most salient findings of this study were: (i) the absence of the ORFV-specific vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF-E) gene in the BPSV isolate; (ii) the presence of an interleukin-10 (IL-10) orthologue; and (iii) the detection of three new genes encoding ankyrin-repeat-containing polypeptides. These results not only contribute to potential improvements of future molecular differentiation between the parapoxvirus species, but also shed new light on different pathobiologies among parapoxviruses.
