Description

This short protein has no known function and is found in Jaagsiekte sheep retrovirus. Jaagsiekte sheep retrovirus (JSRV) is the etiological agent of a contagious lung tumour of sheep known as sheep pulmonary adenomatosis. JSRV exhibits a simple genetic organisation, characteristic of the type D and type B retroviruses, with the canonical retroviral sequences gag, pro, pol and env encoding the structural proteins of the virion and an additional open reading frame (Vpu/orf-x), of approximately 500 bp overlapping pol [PMID: 10653922].
