Title: Novel Papillomaviral Sequence Detected within Epidermal Plaques in a Wolf (Canis lupus)
Author: Rothenburger, Jamie L; Myers, Sherry; Lockerbie, Betty; Wobeser, Bruce
Department: Department of Pathobiology
Abstract: We describe numerous, pale plaques affecting the inguinal skin of a grey wolf (Canis lupus). Histologically, these were consistent with papillomaviral plaques. Immunohistochemistry confirmed papillomavirus antigens and partial sequencing of the L1 gene suggests this is a novel papillomavirus, most closely related to Canis familiaris Papillomavirus 5.
