Herpes simplex virus 1 interaction with Toll-like receptor 2 contributes to lethal encephalitis.
Human neonates infected with herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) develop one of three distinct patterns of infection: (i) infection limited to the skin, eye or mouth; (ii) infection of the CNS; or (iii)Expand

Nuclear IFI16 induction of IRF-3 signaling during herpesviral infection and degradation of IFI16 by the viral ICP0 protein
Innate sensing of microbial components is well documented to occur at many cellular sites, including at the cell surface, in the cytosol, and in intracellular vesicles, but there is limited evidenceExpand

Proteomics of Herpes Simplex Virus Replication Compartments: Association of Cellular DNA Replication, Repair, Recombination, and Chromatin Remodeling Proteinswith ICP8
ABSTRACT In this study, we have used immunoprecipitation and mass spectrometry to identify over 50 cellular and viral proteins that are associated with the herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) ICP8Expand

Vaginal Submucosal Dendritic Cells, but Not Langerhans Cells, Induce Protective Th1 Responses to Herpes Simplex Virus-2
Herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 2 infection occurs primarily at the genital mucosal surfaces and is a leading cause of ulcerative lesions. Despite the availability of animal models for HSV-2Expand

Chromatin control of herpes simplex virus lytic and latent infection
Herpes simplex viruses (HSV) can undergo a lytic infection in epithelial cells and a latent infection in sensory neurons. During latency the virus persists until reactivation, which leads toExpand

Genetic evidence for two distinct transactivation functions of the herpes simplex virus alpha protein ICP27.
Infected-cell protein 27 (ICP27) is a herpes simplex virus type 1 alpha, or immediate-early, protein involved in the regulation of viral gene expression. To better understand the function(s) of ICP27Expand

Numerous Conserved and Divergent MicroRNAs Expressed by Herpes Simplex Viruses 1 and 2
ABSTRACT Certain viruses use microRNAs (miRNAs) to regulate the expression of their own genes, host genes, or both. Previous studies have identified a limited number of miRNAs expressed by herpesExpand

An siRNA-based microbicide protects mice from lethal herpes simplex virus 2 infection
Herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2) infection causes significant morbidity and is an important cofactor for the transmission of HIV infection. A microbicide to prevent sexual transmission of HSV-2 wouldExpand

Thymidine kinase-negative herpes simplex virus mutants establish latency in mouse trigeminal ganglia but do not reactivate.
Herpes simplex virus infection of mammalian hosts involves lytic replication at a primary site, such as the cornea, translocation by axonal transport to sensory ganglia and replication, and latentExpand

The intranuclear location of a herpes simplex virus DNA-binding protein is determined by the status of viral DNA replication
The herpes simplex viral DNA-binding protein, ICP8, is targeted to two different locations in the cell nucleus as part of its maturation pathway. Prior to viral DNA synthesis ICP8 was found atExpand
