Herpes simplex virus (HSV) 1 disaggregates the nuclear domain 10 (ND10) nuclear structures and disperses its organizing promyelocytic leukemia protein (PML). An earlier report showed that ectopic overexpression of PML precludes the disaggregation of ND10 but has no effect on viral replication. PML has been reported to mediate the effects of interferon (IFN)(More)
Earlier studies have shown that herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) blocks the interferon response pathways, at least at two sites, by circumventing the effects of activation of protein kinase R by double-stranded RNA and interferon and through the degradation of promyelocytic leukemia protein (PML) since interferon has no antiviral effects in PML(-/-) cells.(More)
Earlier studies have shown that the d120 mutant of herpes simplex virus 1, which lacks both copies of the alpha4 gene, induces caspase-3-dependent apoptosis in HEp-2 cells. Apoptosis was also induced by the alpha4 rescuant but was blocked by the complementation of rescuant with a DNA fragment encoding the U(S)3 protein kinase (R. Leopardi and B. Roizman,(More)
