two distinct gamma-2 herpesviruses in african green monkeys: a second gamma-2 herpesvirus lineage among old world primates?primate gamma-2 herpesviruses (rhadinoviruses) have so far been found in humans (kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus [kshv], also called human herpesvirus 8), macaques (macaca spp.) (rhesus rhadinovirus [rrv] and retroperitoneal fibromatosis herpesvirus [rfhv]), squirrel monkeys (saimiri sciureus) (herpesvirus saimiri), and spider monkeys (ateles spp.) (herpesvirus ateles). using serological screening and degenerate consensus primer pcr for the viral dna polymerase gene, we have detected seq ...200010627572
infection with a novel gammaherpesvirus in northern elephant seals (mirounga angustirostris).twenty juvenile northern elephant seals (mirounga angustirostris) that died between 1998 and 2004 had ulcers on the tongue, palatine mucosa, and/or tonsils. histologic examination of the lesions revealed cytoplasmic swelling, nuclear pyknosis, and eosinophilic to amphophilic intranuclear inclusions bodies suggestive of herpesviral infection. electron microscopic examination and polymerase chain reaction analysis confirmed the presence of a herpesvirus. subsequent dna sequencing identified this t ...200617255451
