A 465 bp DNA segment was obtained by nested PCR from kidney culture of rhesus monkeyusing primers homologies to highly conserved portions of pol gene of simian foamy virus type 1 provirus, and clone it into the vector pMD18-T for sequencing. The pol gene was identified by comparison with other primate foamy viruses. The sequence comparison with the pol gene of SFV-1, SFV-1A, SFV-1B, SFV-2, SFVmac, SFVkm showed nucleotide homologies of 91.06%, 90.59%, 90.82%, 90.21%, 89.41%, 91.53%respectively. We conclude that limited sequenced DNA of pol gene is a powerful tool for classification as well as molecular epidemiology of foamy viruses. The phylogenetic tree of 7 foamy viruses investigated reflects the relationship between SFVkm1 and other species.
