Cloning and initial characterization of an alternatively spliced transcript encoded by the bovine herpes virus 1 latency-related gene


Bovine herpesvirus 1 (BHV-1) establishes latency in trigeminal ganglionic sensory neurons of infected cattle. The latency-related (LR) RNA is the only abundantly expressed viral transcript in sensory neurons of latently infected calves. Wild-type expression of LR gene products is required for the latency-reactivation cycle in calves. LR RNA is alternatively… (More)
