A comparison was undertaken of poxvirus promoters in vaccinia and fowlpox virus (FPV) recombinants using the level of β-galactosidase expressed from theLacZ gene as a measure of promoter function. In this study a comparison was made of the vaccinia virus promoters, P 7.5 and P L11, the major late promoter of cowpox virus, P CPX (expressing the abundant inclusion body protein), and the FPV promoters, P E/L and P L. In vaccinia virus recombinants the FPV P E/L promoter expressed one-third to one… CONTINUE READING
