Abstract

A novel simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) was characterized from a Schmidt's guenon (), which was housed in a local zoo. The virus infection was detected during a routine serological screening for antibodies that were cross-reactive with SIVmac antigens. Infection with an immunodeficiency virus was confirmed using an INNO-LIA HIV Confirmation assay. Using DNA isolated from a blot clot, a 1895 nt partial sequence was amplified and sequenced. Phylogenetic analysis showed that this virus, designated SIVschm, shares a distant relationship with SIVgsn, isolated from greater spot-nosed monkeys, and is one of the most divergent SIVs identified to date.
