Purification and characterization of the DNA-binding activity of the Epstein-Barr virus DNA polymerase accessory protein BMRF1 gene products, as expressed in insect cells by using the baculovirus system.


A recombinant baculovirus containing the complete sequence for the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) BMRF1 gene product, the EBV DNA polymerase accessory protein, under the control of the polyhedrin promoter was constructed. Insect cells infected with the recombinant virus produced two phosphoproteins of 52 and 50 kDa and one unphosphorylated protein of 48 kDa… (More)
