Genome sequence of a novel, newly isolated strain of guinea pig cytomegalovirus, the CIDMTR strain.

Authors: Schleiss, Mark R and Hernandez-Alvarado, Nelmary and Ramaraj, Thiruvarangan and Crow, John A

The sequence of a newly discovered isolate of guinea pig cytomegalovirus (GPCMV), the CIDMTR strain, was determined. The 232,778-nucleotide genome was generally well conserved with that of the 22122 reference strain, although some regions of substantial sequence divergence allowed annotation of strain-specific open reading frames encoding putative immune modulation gene products.
