Abstract

Four novel human gammapapillomaviruses were characterized from penile specimens using genome amplification, cloning, and sequencing. The HPV-219 L1 gene showed 87% nucleotide identity to that of HPV-213 of species gamma-13, HPV-220 had 72% identity to L1 of HPV-212 (gamma-17), HPV-221 had 80% identity to L1 of HPV-142 (gamma-10), and HPV-222 had 73% nucleotide identity to L1 of HPV-162 (gamma-19).
