molecular and phylogenetic analyses of 16 novel simian t cell leukemia virus type 1 from africa: close relationship of stlv-1 from allenopithecus nigroviridis to htlv-1 subtype b strains.a serological survey searching for antibodies reacting with human t-cell leukemia virus type 1 (htlv-1) antigens was performed on a series of 263 sera/plasma obtained from 34 monkey species or subspecies, originating from different parts of africa. among them, 34 samples exhibited a typical htlv-1 western blot pattern. polymerase chain reaction was performed with three primer sets specific either to htlv-1/stlv-1 or htlv-2 and encompassing gag, pol, and tax sequences, on genomic dna from periphe ...200111531406
