green iguana herpesvirus Synonym for iguanid herpesvirus 1.

green lizard herpesvirus Synonym for lac-ertid herpesvirus 1.

green lizard papillomavirus A possible virus in the genus Papillomavirus. Seen by electron microscopy in skin lesions which were most prevalent in the genital areas in the green lizard, Lacerta viridis. Successful experimental transmission of the disease with virus extracts was not accomplished.

green turtle herpesvirus (GTHV)

green turtle herpesvirus (GTHV) A virus associated with an emerging neoplastic disease of turtles in Florida and Hawaii. Fibropapillomatosis is a debilitating, frequently fatal disease of marine green turtles, Chelonia mydas, characterized by the presence of epithelial fibropapillomas and internal fibromas containing her-pesvirus-like DNA sequences. Although a virus has not so far been isolated, DNA sequence analysis of fibropapilloma tissue suggests that there may be at least three closely related herpesviruses associated with the disease, depending on the species and geographical location. In addition to green turtles, loggerhead turtles and olive ridley turtles may also be infected. When cell-free filtrates of cultured cells derived from the fibropapilloma tissue were inoculated into cells derived from healthy green turtle lung, tumor-like cell aggregates were formed, and electron microscopy showed that these contained a small (50 nm diameter) naked virus. The role of this virus in disease and its relation, if any, to the herpesvirus sequences, remain to be determined.
