Latent infections in spinal ganglia with thymidine kinase-deficient herpes simplex virus.

Abstract

A herpes simplex virus type 1 variant [C239(TK-)] harboring a deletion in the thymidine kinase (TK) gene was assessed for capacity to establish latent infections. Outbred Swiss Webster mice were inoculated on both hind footpads, and numbers of neurons expressing latency-associated transcript and amounts of viral DNA in latently infected lumbosacral spinal… (More)
