Genetic Characterization of Feline Leukemia Virus from Florida Panthers
Figure 5. Variable sites in the amino acid alignment of panther feline leukemia virus (FeLV-Pco) and domestic cat FeLV env sequences (1,689 bp). Surface glycoprotein (SU), transmembrane (TM), variable region A and B (VRA and VRB), and proline-rich region (PRR) locations are indicated. Horizontal line separates sequences of puma (above) and domestic cat (below). The 10 amino acid residues in this region unique to FeLV-945 and FeLV-Pco sequences are shaded in gray. Matches to the reference sequence are indicated by dots; gaps are indicted by dashes.
