Vmw65, a herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) tegument protein, in association with cellular proteins, transactivates viral immediate early genes. In order to examine the role of Vmw65 during acute and latent infection in vivo, a mutant virus (in1814), containing a 12-base-pair insertion in the Vmw65 gene, which lacks the transactivating function of Vmw65 (C. I. Ace, T. A. McKee, J. M. Ryan, J. M. Cameron, and C. M. Preston, J. Virol. 63:2260-2269, 1989) was examined in mice. Following corneal… CONTINUE READING
