Several benign and malignant skin tumors were analyzed for the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA. By hybridization with different HPV DNA probes under non-stringent conditions (Tm -40 degrees C), two tumors were found to contain HPV-specific DNA sequences in high copy numbers: (1) a keratoacanthoma from a patient who also suffered from a basalioma; (2) a superficial spreading malignant melanoma of an immunosuppressed patient. For further analysis of these DNA sequences genomic libraries from both tumor DNAs were constructed and, out of these, 4 different HPV DNA types have been cloned. By cross-hybridization experiments and restriction map analysis HPV 9 DNA was identified in the keratoacanthoma whereas HPV 17a DNA could be cloned from the malignant melanoma. From each tumor one additional HPV-type not identical to other known HPV-types was cloned. These isolates are closely related to HPV 9, 15, 17, 22 and 23. A physical map of both HPV DNAs was constructed. Size (7.8 kbp), co-linear alignment to HPV 16, cross-hybridization with other HPV-types under conditions of low stringency and monomeric episomal state of the HPV molecules indicate that these two DNA probes represent new HPV types that have been tentatively desig...Continue Reading
