The rapid spread of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) in mucosal epithelia and neuronal tissue depends primarily on the ability of the virus to navigate within polarized cells and the tissues they constitute. To understand HSV entry and the spread of virus across cell junctions, we have previously characterized a human keratinocyte cell line, HaCaT. These(More)
Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) glycoprotein D (gD) is an essential component of the entry apparatus that is responsible for viral penetration and subsequent cell-cell spread. To test the hypothesis that gD may serve distinguishable functions in entry of free virus and cell-cell spread, mutants were selected for growth on U(S)11cl19.3 cells, which are(More)
95-19 and U(S)11c119.3 are BHK(TK-)-derived cell lines that are highly resistant to postattachment entry of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and HSV-2 but not to later steps in single-step replication. The resistance properties of these two cell types are not identical. U(S)11c119.3 cells are fully susceptible to pseudorabies virus (PRV), as shown by(More)
