A protocol for purification of the two-subunit complex of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) helicase-primase by metal affinity chromatography is presented. In order to bind the enzyme complex consisting of UL5 and UL52 gene functions to the affinity column, the C-terminus of the UL5 gene of HSV-1 strain ANG was fused in-frame with a sequence encoding six(More)
