Dissecting HCMV Gene Expression Most of us are infected with human cytomegalovirus (HCMV), but severe disease is almost always limited to immunocompromised individuals or newborn infants. The virus has a relatively large (∼240 kb) DNA genome and shows a complex pattern of gene transcription, hinting at a complex regulatory and coding capacity. Stern-Ginossar et al. (p. 1088) mapped ribosome positions on HCMV transcripts during the course of viral infection of human fibroblast cells. The data… Expand
Functional annotation of human cytomegalovirus gene products: an update
TLDR
This functional annotation highlights still poorly understood regions of the genome but more importantly it can give insight in functional clusters and/or may be helpful in the analysis of future transcriptomics and proteomics studies. Expand

Human cytomegalovirus long noncoding RNA4.9 regulates viral DNA replication
TLDR
Results indicate that HCMV RNA4.9 plays an important role in regulating viral DNA replication, that the levels of ssDBP are coupled to the oriLyt activity, and that these regulatory features may be conserved among betaherpesviruses. Expand
Contributions of the Human Cytomegalovirus UL30-Associated Open Reading Frames to Infection
TLDR
Deletion of the canonically annotated UL30 ORF substantially reduces production of infectious virus at both high and low multiplicities of infection (MOI), which likely has complex effects on viral replication. Expand
Long ncRNAs expressed during human cytomegalovirus infections
TLDR
Long ncRNAs may contribute to HCMV evasion of the host response and manipulate cellular and viral programs to successfully persist throughout the lifetime of its host. Expand
Mouse Cytomegalovirus M34 Encodes a Non-essential, Nuclear, Early-Late Expressed Protein Required for Efficient Viral Replication
TLDR
It is revealed that MCMV remains replication competent despite the absence of M34, enabling functional studies in the infection context and revealing previous unsuccessful reconstitution attempts conducted by others. Expand
Human Cytomegalovirus US28 Is Important for Latent Infection of Hematopoietic Progenitor Cells
TLDR
The data suggest that US28 is required for latency as infection with viruses lacking the US28 ORF alone or in combination with the remaining HCMV-encoded GPCR results in transcription from the major immediate early promoter, theproduction of extracellular virions, and the production of infectious virus capable of infecting naive fibroblasts.

Human Cytomegalovirus US 28 Is Important for Latent Infection of Hematopoietic Progenitor Cells
Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) resides latently in hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPCs). During latency, only a subset of HCMV genes is transcribed, including one of the four virus-encoded GExpand

An analysis of human cytomegalovirus gene family function
TLDR
A large proportion of the US12 family were shown to be degraded within the cell, possibly within lysosomes, which suggests that they may interact with their targets proteins in order to redirect them for degradation. Expand

Antisense Transcription in the Human Cytomegalovirus Transcriptome
TLDR
The remarkable accumulation of antisense transcripts during infection suggests that currently available genomic maps based on open-reading-frame and other in silico analyses may drastically underestimate the true complexity of viral gene products. Expand

TLDR
The coding content of clinical isolates is re-evaluated by identifying the set of open reading frames (ORFs) that are conserved in all five sequenced clinical isolate and which of these ORFs are present in the chimpanzee cytomegalovirus (CCMV) genome. Expand
The human cytomegalovirus genome revisited: comparison with the chimpanzee cytomegalovirus genome.
TLDR
The sequence (241 087 bp) of chimpanzee cytomegalovirus (CCMV) is determined and compared with published HCMV sequences from the laboratory strains AD169 and Toledo, with the aim of clarifying the gene content of wild-type H CMV. Expand

TLDR
The overall conclusion, that HCMV transcription is complex and multifaceted, has implications for the potential sophistication of virus functionality during infection and illustrates the key contribution that deep sequencing can make to the genomics of nuclear DNA viruses. Expand
Open Reading Frame UL26 of Human Cytomegalovirus Encodes a Novel Tegument Protein That Contains a Strong Transcriptional Activation Domain
TLDR
The data suggest that pUL26 is a novel tegument protein of HCMV with a strong transcriptional activation domain that could play an important role during initiation of the viral replicative cycle. Expand
