Murine gammaherpesvirus 68 (MHV-68) is a virus of wild rodents and is a convenient small animal model for studies of gammaherpesvirus pathogenesis. We have sequenced 6162 bp at the left end of the MHV-68 genome and identified two unique open reading frames (ORFs) (ORF2 and ORF3) and an ORF (ORF1) which displays similarity to poxvirus members of the serpin(More)
Five newly isolated mycobacteriophages--Angelica, CrimD, Adephagia, Anaya, and Pixie--have similar genomic architectures to mycobacteriophage TM4, a previously characterized phage that is widely used in mycobacterial genetics. The nucleotide sequence similarities warrant grouping these into Cluster K, with subdivision into three subclusters: K1, K2, and K3.(More)
The temporal appearance and levels of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) tat, rev, nef, env and gag mRNA species were examined using a synchronized, one-step, cell-to-cell HIV-1 infection model involving HUT-78 cells and HIV- 1 persistently infected H3B cells. Individual mRNAs were quantified by RT-PCR using RNA standards transcribed in vitro from(More)
