Kaposi's Sarcoma-Associated Herpesvirus ori-Lyt-Dependent DNA Replication: cis-Acting Requirements for Replication and ori-Lyt-Associated RNA Transcription
ABSTRACT Herpesvirus lytic DNA replication requires both the cis-acting element, the origin, and trans-acting factors such as virally encoded origin-binding protein and DNA replication enzymes.Expand

Investigation of sheep-associated malignant catarrhal fever virus infection in ruminants by PCR and competitive inhibition enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.
Development of control measures for the gammaherpesviral disease of cattle known as sheep-associated malignant catarrhal fever (SA-MCF) has been hampered by a lack of accurate diagnostic tests eitherExpand

A Simpler, More Sensitive Competitive Inhibition Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay for Detection of Antibody to Malignant Catarrhal Fever Viruses
An earlier competitive inhibition enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (CI-ELISA) was developed for detection of specific antibody against malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) viruses (MCFV) in ruminants. InExpand

Recognition of another member of the malignant catarrhal fever virus group: an endemic gammaherpesvirus in domestic goats.
A novel gammaherpesvirus in goats that is herein tentatively designated as caprine herpesvirus-2 was identified based on the sequence of a fragment from the herpesvirus DNA polymerase gene. SequenceExpand

Newly Recognized Herpesvirus Causing Malignant Catarrhal Fever in White-Tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus)
ABSTRACT Malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) was diagnosed by clinical signs and lesions in five out of six white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) in a North American zoo. The clinical signs andExpand

Kaposi's Sarcoma-Associated Herpesvirus Lytic Origin (ori-Lyt)-Dependent DNA Replication: Identification of the ori-Lyt and Association of K8 bZip Protein with the Origin
ABSTRACT Herpesviruses utilize different origins of replication during lytic versus latent infection. Latent DNA replication depends on host cellular DNA replication machinery, whereas lytic cycleExpand

Transmission of Ovine Herpesvirus 2 in Lambs
ABSTRACT The pattern of acquisition of ovine herpesvirus 2 (OHV-2) infection in lambs was examined by a competitive-inhibition enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and PCR. Newborn lambs (n = 118) didExpand

Kaposi's Sarcoma-Associated Herpesvirus ori-Lyt-Dependent DNA Replication: Involvement of Host Cellular Factors
ABSTRACT Herpesvirus lytic DNA replication requires both the cis-acting element, the origin, and trans-acting factors, including virally encoded origin-binding protein, DNA replication enzymes, andExpand

A novel subgroup of rhadinoviruses in ruminants.
In the course of investigating the malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) subgroup of rhadinoviruses, seven novel rhadinoviruses were identified in a variety of ruminants, including domestic sheep, bighornExpand

Field Validation of Laboratory Tests for Clinical Diagnosis of Sheep-Associated Malignant Catarrhal Fever
ABSTRACT Until recently, sheep-associated malignant catarrhal fever (SA-MCF) was diagnosed mainly on the basis of clinical presentation and histopathological changes. Using clinically diagnosed fieldExpand
