Characterization of a new type of human papillomavirus (HPV) related to HPV5 from a case of actinic keratosis.

Abstract

Human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA sequences, related to the genomes of HPVs associated with epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV), were detected in DNA samples extracted from biopsied lesions in 2 of 24 cases of actinic keratosis found in the general population. An HPV DNA was molecularly cloned from one of these samples. Blot hybridization experiments, performed under stringent conditions, revealed a significant cross-hybridization only between this HPV DNA and the DNAs of HPV5 and of the HPV5-related types. The extent of homology between them ranged from 7 to 30%, as evaluated by hybridization in liquid phase at saturation followed by nuclease S1 analysis. This showed that the cloned HPV represented a new type, tentatively named HPV36. HPV36 was not found in the other 22 cases of actinic keratosis, but was detected in scrapings of benign lesions of 7 of 18 (39%) EV patients.
