The BamHI Nhet region of the EBV DNA is known to code for two proteins. One is a membrane protein (LMP) with an apparent molecular weight of 60,000 on SDS-PAGE which is expressed in latently EBV infected cells. The second protein, so far unidentified, is presumably a late protein with a calculated molecular weight of 28,000 Da. Antisera against both… CONTINUE READING
