Tree number(s): B04.820.650.850
Scope note: Genus of non-oncogenic retroviruses which establish persistent infections in many animal species but are considered non-pathogenic. Its species have been isolated from primates (including humans), cattle, cats, hamsters, horses, and sea lions. Spumaviruses have a foamy or lace-like appearance and are often accompanied by syncytium formation. SIMIAN FOAMY VIRUS is the type species.
Annotation: infection: coordinate IM with RETROVIRIDAE INFECTIONS (IM); note HUMAN SPUMAVIRUS and CHIMPANZEE FOAMY VIRUS are entry terms to SIMIAN FOAMY VIRUS
