Comments Ref: "Porcine circovirus (PCV) was first detected as a contaminant of a continuous pig kidney cell line (PK-15) (1st primary source). This cell culture isolate (PCV PK-15) was shown to possess a circular ssDNA genome of 1.76 kb (primary sources)" (3rd primary source abstract:) "The complete nucleotide sequence (1759 nt) of the ssDNA sequence was determined from a cloned dsDNA replicative form isolated from PCV-infected cells."
