Comparative analysis of the genomes of orthopoxviruses isolated from elephant, rhinoceros, and okapi by restriction enzymes. Brief report.

Abstract

Orthopoxviruses from different zoo-kept mammalian species including Elephas maximus (8 isolates), Ceratotherium simum (1 isolate), and Okapia johnstoni (2 isolates) were characterized by restriction enzyme analysis of the viral genome. The four enzymes BamHI, MluI, NcoI, and SalI were found to be optimal for strain differentiation.
