Structure and genome organization of AFV2, a novel archaeal lipothrixvirus with unusual terminal and core structures.

Haring M., Vestergaard G., Brugger K., Rachel R., Garrett R.A., Prangishvili D.

A novel filamentous virus, AFV2, from the hyperthermophilic archaeal genus Acidianus shows structural similarity to lipothrixviruses but differs from them in its unusual terminal and core structures. The double-stranded DNA genome contains 31,787 bp and carries eight open reading frames homologous to those of other lipothrixviruses, a single tRNA(Lys) gene containing a 12-bp archaeal intron, and a 1,008-bp repeat-rich region near the center of the genome.
