First Complete Genome Sequence of Felis catus Gammaherpesvirus 1 Academic Article uri icon


  • We sequenced the complete genome of Felis catus gammaherpesvirus 1 (FcaGHV1) from lymph node DNA of an infected cat. The genome includes a 121,556-nucleotide unique region with 87 predicted open reading frames (61 gammaherpesvirus conserved and 26 unique) flanked by multiple copies of a 966-nucleotide terminal repeat.
