At least seven viral genes encode proteins (UL6, UL15, UL17, UL25, UL28, UL32, and UL33) that are required for DNA cleavage and packaging of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) DNA. Sequence analysis reveals that UL15 shares homology with gp17, the large catalytic subunit of the bacteriophage T4 terminase. Thus, UL15 may play a direct role in the cleavage… CONTINUE READING
