Genetic variation in the ovine TMEM154 gene associates with susceptibility to small ruminant lentivirus (SRLV) infection. We report here the first complete genome sequence for a genotype A2, subgroup 4 SRLV isolated from a Hampshire ewe with two copies of a TMEM154 frameshift mutation predicted to abolish protein function.
