Polymerase chain reaction-based bovine papillomavirus (BPV) detection methods using a combination of two primer sets, subAup/subAdw and subBup/subBdw, have enabled the broad-spectrum detection of most characterized BPV types. These methods were used to detect the partial L1 nucleotide sequence of BPV types from 167 cutaneous warts in cattle. Three potentially new viruses were detected using subBup/subBdw primer sets. The partial nucleotide sequences of these viruses were most similar to BPV-4, -6 and -9. Whole genome sequencing of one sample defines a new BPV type in the genus Xipapillomavirus, designated BPV-11.
