This report describes the complete nucleotide sequence of the genome of herpesvirus saimiri, the prototype of gammaherpesvirus subgroup 2 (rhadinoviruses). The unique low-G + C-content DNA region has 112,930 bp with an average base composition of 34.5% G + C and is flanked by about 35 noncoding high-G + C-content DNA repeats of 1,444 bp (70.8% G + C) in(More)
We have reported previously the detection of two stable immediate-early (IE) transcripts that accumulate in cycloheximide-treated cells infected with herpesvirus saimiri (HVS). These are the 1.6-kb mRNA from the 52-kDa gene (which is homologous to the BSLF2-BMLF1 gene of Epstein-Barr virus) and the 1.3-kb mRNA from the HindIII-G fragment of virus DNA. In(More)
In Caenorhabditis elegans, cell migration is guided by localized cues, including molecules such as EGL-17/FGF and UNC-6/netrin. These external cues are linked to an intracellular response to migrate, at least in part, by CED-5, a homolog of DOCK180/MBC, and MIG-2, a Rac-like GTPase. In addition, metalloproteases are required for a cell migration that(More)
We present an analysis of 43,658 bp of contiguous nucleotide sequence comprising the right terminal region (conventional orientation) of the unique protein-coding component (L-DNA) of the herpesvirus saimiri (HVS) genome. Within this region lie the genes encoding the 160-kDa virion protein, which is homologous to the 140-kDa membrane antigen of Epstein-Barr(More)
An improved screening procedure was applied to identify hybridomas secreting antibodies to herpesvirus saimiri-specified polypeptides among the products of fusions between SP2/0 myeloma cells and spleen cells from mice immunized with purified virus particles or virus-specific DNA-binding proteins. Twenty-four monoclonal antibodies were isolated with(More)
Herpesvirus saimiri (HSV) is a T-lymphotropic tumor virus that causes fulminant lymphomas and leukemias in various New World primates other than its natural host, the squirrel monkey (Saimiri sciureus). In the course of completing the nucleotide sequence of its genome, we identified an open reading frame of 363 nucleotides, designated HVS-15, that has no(More)
Sequencing studies have indicated that the unique component of the human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) genome and the unique long segment of the human cytomegalovirus genome are genetically colinear. Of particular interest is the identification of a region of local CpG dinucleotide suppression in the genome of HHV-6, a feature conserved in the genomes of human(More)
The time course of virus replication in cultures of permissive cells infected with high multiplicities of herpesvirus saimiri (HVS), a gammaherpesvirus, is protracted relative to the replication of herpes simplex virus (HSV), an alphaherpesvirus, under similar conditions. The basis for this difference was investigated by quantitative immunofluorescence(More)
FOXM1 is a critical regulator of the G1/S and G2/M cell cycle transitions, as well as of the mitotic spindle assembly. Previous studies have suggested that FOXM1 regulates CDC25A gene transcription, but the mechanism remains unknown. Here, we provide evidence that FOXM1 directly regulates CDC25A gene transcription via direct promoter binding and indirect(More)
