Genes UL49 and UL48 of Marek's disease virus 1 (MDV-1) strain RB1B, encoding the respective homologues of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) genes VP22 and VP16, were cloned into a baculovirus vector. Seven anti-VP22 MAbs and one anti-VP16 MAb were generated and used to identify the tegument proteins in cells infected lytically with MDV-1. The two genes are known to be transcribed as a single bicistronic transcript, and the detection of only one of the two proteins (VP22) in MSB-1 lymphoma and… CONTINUE READING
