The molecular structure of the genome of simian herpes B virus (SHBV) was determined by restriction endonuclease mapping studies. Genomic DNA was cleaved with restriction endonucleases BamHI and SalI into 41 and 58 fragments, respectively. Most of these fragments were cloned into the plasmid vector pACYC184; uncloned fragments were identified following(More)
The 10K gene of simian herpes B virus (SHBV) has been located and the nucleotide sequence determined. Its relationship to homologous genes in other herpes-viruses has been examined. The SHBV 10K gene exhibits a closer relationship to its homologue in HSV-1 than to those in the other viruses studied. Nucleotide sequence identity of 61% was found between the(More)
The gene encoding glycoprotein D (gD) of simian herpes B virus (SHBV) was identified by hybridization with the gD gene of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). The gene probe bound to a 2.6 kbp SalI-EcoRI fragment of SHBV DNA, which was cloned into a plasmid vector. The nucleotide sequence of the SHBV DNA fragment was determined. Two complete and one partial(More)
The nucleotide sequence of a 2384 bp portion within the unique short (Us) region of the herpesvirus simiae (simian herpes B virus; SHBV) genome is presented. A partial and a complete open reading frame (ORF) were found within this nucleotide sequence. The partial ORF encodes the C terminus (147 amino acids) of a protein kinase which is highly conserved in(More)
The motor endplate of frog sartorius muscle was voltage clamped and the peak current to different concentrations of acetylcholine and carbachol applied in the perfusing fluid was measured. Perfusing fluid was hypertonic in order to suppress contractions. Current responses were smooth and reached a peak value within 2-5 s. The dose-response curve was usually(More)
Variation in the size of structures within mature cortical bone is relevant to our understanding of apparent differences between human samples, and it is relevant to the development of histologically based age-estimation methods. It was proposed that variation may reflect effects of physical activity, through biomechanical and/or metabolic mechanisms. If(More)
Simian herpes B virus (SHBV) is the herpes simplex virus (HSV) homologue for the species MACACA: Unlike in its natural host, and unlike other animal herpesviruses, SHBV causes high mortality in accidentally infected humans. SHBV-infected cells, like those infected with HSV-1 and equine herpesvirus types 1 and 4, express complement C3 receptor activity. To(More)
