Novel Virus Related to Kaposi's Sarcoma-Associated Herpesvirus from Colobus Monkey.

Abstract

We determined the complete genome sequence of a virus isolated from a mantled guereza that died of primary effusion lymphoma. The virus is closely related to Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) but lacks some genes implicated in KSHV pathogenesis. This finding may help determine how KSHV causes primary effusion lymphoma in humans.
