A novel human papillomavirus type (HPV) was cloned from an invasive cervical carcinoma. The viral clone showed no homology with other known prototypes of HPV (HPV-1 through HPV-57), except HPV-33 by Southern blot analysis under stringent conditions. It showed less than 20% homology to HPV-33 by reassociation kinetic analysis. The restriction endonuclease map of the clone was different from those of other HPV types and its predicted genome organization surmised by hybridization with subgenomic fragment probes of HPV-33 DNA showed the typical HPV genome organization. The results indicate that this clone is a new type of HPV, designated as HPV-58, distinct from the other known types of HPV. HPV-58 was detected in none of 6 specimens of cervical condylomata acuminata, in 7 of 58 specimens of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, and in 4 of 50 specimens of invasive cervical carcinoma studied in Nagano prefecture, Japan.
