  1. 1The terminal "a" or "b" in the primer name indicates the plus or minus sense of the gene transcription, respectively.
  2. 2IUB code for ambiguous nucleotides: R = A or G; Y = C or T; N = A, C, G, or T
  3. 3FAM indicates a TaqMan dual-labeled probe with the fluorescent dye 6-FAM at the 5' end and the "black hole quencher" (BHQ) dye at the 3' end.
  4. 4These CODEHOP primers target the same motif but are biased differently (see below).
  5. 5"bias" indicates that the 5' consensus region of the CODEHOP primer was derived from a particular sequence" see [20].
  6. 6These CODEHOP primers target the same motif but are biased differently.
  7. 7This primer sequence is identical to the RFHVMn, RFHVMm and KSHV sequences
