Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) open reading frame (ORF) UL11 locates within a polymorphic region of the viral genome identified previously by a restriction-fragment-length-polymorphism. We report here that ORF UL11 encodes a polymorphic protein expressed on the surface of HCMV-infected cells. First, we determined the nucleotide sequence of ORF UL11 from ten strains and compared it among the strains. Out of 205 amino acids consisting of the predicted N-terminal region beside the putative… CONTINUE READING
