This subgroup is a recombinant of FeLV-A and enFeLV, an endogenous retrovirus harbored only by members of the genus Felis. Identification of FeLV-B infection in a Florida panther is only possible as a result of horizontal transmission of FeLV from a domestic cat because panthers lack enFeLV to support recombination (22).
The genus Felis comprises a handful of closely related species of small cats.
Currently, the genus Felis includes small felids, while Panthera includes large cats such as lions, tigers, and leopards (Turner and Anton, 1997).
