A 7.3 kb BamH I genomic fragment from fowlpox virus (FPV) strain 282E4 has been sequenced. After comparison with the FPV sequences collected in Genbank, and the entire genomic sequence of vaccinia virus (VV) strain Compenhagen, a ll.2 kb BamH I fragment from FPV strain Munich HP-438 has been found homologous to the fragment. Every predicted open reading frame (ORF) within the fragment has been compared with the ORFs of VV strain Copenhagen at the amino acid level. The signal peptide and transmembrane region of each peptide encoded by each corresponding ORF predicted in the fragment have been studied as well.
