Identification of a 709-amino-acid internal nonessential region within the essential conserved tegument protein (p)UL36 of pseudorabies virus.

Tegument proteins homologous to the essential herpes simplex virus type 1 UL36 gene product (p)UL36 are conserved throughout the Herpesviridae and constitute the largest herpesvirus-encoded proteins. So far, only limited information is available on their functions, which include complex formation with the (p)UL37 homologs via an N-terminal domain and a… CONTINUE READING
