Identification of envelope glycoproteins H and B homologues of human herpesvirus 7.

Abstract

The genes encoding the envelope glycoprotein H (gH) and gB homologues were identified by sequencing genomic clones of human herpesvirus-7 (HHV-7), strain JI. A gB cDNA clone from HHV-7 strain AL was also identified. The deduced primary translation products of the gH and gB genes are a protein of 690 amino acids, with a predicted mass of 80.4 kD, and a… (More)
