Identification of the site of recombination in the generation of the genome of DI particles of equine herpesvirus type 1.


Defective interfering particles (DIPs) are generated by serial, undiluted propagation of equine herpesvirus type 1 (EHV-1). DIP-rich preparations of EHV-1 mediate oncogenic transformation and persistent infection in permissive hamster embryo fibroblasts. The defective genomes consist of reiterations of sequences from the left terminus (0.00 to 0.04 map… (More)
