genomic characterization of two novel reptilian papillomaviruses, chelonia mydas papillomavirus 1 and caretta caretta papillomavirus this paper we describe the characterization of the genomes of two sea turtle papillomaviruses, chelonia mydas pv (cmpv-1) and caretta caretta pv (ccpv-1). the isolation and sequencing of the first non-avian reptilian pvs extend the evolutionary history of pvs to include all amniotes. pvs have now been described in mammals, birds and non-avian reptiles. the chelonian pvs form a distinct clade most closely related to the avian pvs. unlike the avian pvs, both chelonian pvs have canonical e6 and ...200918973915
