The genome of human papovavirus BKV.


The complete DNA sequence of human papovavirus BKV(Dun), consisting of 5153 nucleotide pairs, is presented. We describe the segments of the genome which correspond to the replication origin, the tandem repeated sequences, the 5' and 3' ends of the mRNAs, the splice sites, the early and late viral proteins and the putative viral polypeptides. These BKV DNA sequences are compared with analogous regions in the SV40 and Py virus genomes in an attempt to localize viral functions for lytic growth and transformation.
