Abstract

Analysis of molecularly cloned DNAs of SIVs isolated from Asian rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta; SIVmac) and pig-tailed macaque (Macaca nemestrina; SIVmne) has indicated a high degree of sequence homology between these viruses. Thus SIVmac and SIVmne might have originated from the same or very closely related viruses. We have cloned and sequenced a PCR-amplified segment containing the LTR sequences of SIV originating from a stump-tailed macaque (Macaca arctoides; SIVstm). Comparative sequence analysis indicates that SIVstm belongs to the SIV/HIV-2 group; however, it is genetically distinct from the other members.
