To understand the mechanism of regulation of bovine herpesvirus 4 (BHV-4) early gene expression by immediate-early (IE) gene products, we studied activation of expression of the BHV-4 early gene encoding thymidine kinase (TK). BHV-4 encodes two IE RNAs. IE RNA 2 encodes a protein with predicted amino acid sequence similarity to the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)(More)
We characterized an abundant late 1.7-kb cytoplasmic polyadenylated RNA (L1.7 RNA) transcribed from the bovine herpesvirus 4 (BHV-4) HindIII W fragment, in a region of the genome not conserved with Epstein-Barr virus and herpesvirus saimiri. L1.7 RNA contains only extremely short (<100 nucleotides) open reading frames followed by two repeat arrays. The(More)
Heat shock factor-DNA interaction is critical for understanding the regulatory mechanisms of stress-induced gene expression in eukaryotes. In this study, we analyzed the in vivo binding of yeast heat shock factor (HSF) to the promoters of target genes ScSSA1, ScSSA4, HSP30 and HSP104, using chromatin immunoprecipitation. Previous work suggested that yeast(More)
