We found that the molecular clock hypothesis was not rejected for the 881-bp alignment of PTLV and bovine leukemia virus tax sequences in both PAUP* ( and Tree-Puzzle (www.
These discoveries demonstrate that the diversity of PTLV is far from understood and that zoonotic infection with STLV continues in persons exposed to NHPs (7).
Our detection of a 7% prevalence of STLV infection among hunted wild monkeys is comparable to the 8%-11% seroreactivity to PTLV recently found in monkey and ape samples collected mostly at urban bushmeat markets in Cameroon (9,25).

Primate T-lymphotropic viruses (PTLVs) are composed of simian and human T-lymphotropic viruses (STLVs and HTLVs, respectively).
