Abstract

We describe the molecular cloning of a serogroup 2 simian retrovirus (SRV; D2/RHE/OR) and present the sequence of its envelope (env) glycoprotein gene and 3' long terminal repeat region. This report documents the first infectious molecular clone of a serogroup 2 SRV and provides env sequence verification of genetic diversity among serogroup 2 SRV isolates.
