Genus: Dyoepsilonpapillomavirus


Genus: Dyoepsilonpapillomavirus

Distinguishing features

Members of this genus are associated with the healthy skin of yellow-necked spurfowl or yellow-necked francolin (Pternistis leucoscepus) living in Africa, a species of bird in the family Phasianidae. The E6 protein contains a single zinc-binding domain. The genome also encodes for a unique E9 protein (Van Doorslaer et al., 2017b).
