The gene products of herpes simplex virus type 1 UL46 and UL47 enhance the efficiency of alpha TIF (VP16)-mediated alpha gene expression through an unknown mechanism of action. To further characterize the function of the UL46- and UL47-encoded proteins during virus infection, a series of isogenic herpes simplex virus type 1 strain F-derived UL46 and UL47 single-deletion mutants and a UL46/47 double-deletion mutant were constructed and compared with the wild type. Analysis of purified virions… CONTINUE READING
