Sequence analysis of a glycoprotein D gene homolog within the unique short segment of the EHV-1 genome.

DNA sequence analysis of one-third of the unique short (Us) segment of the equine herpesvirus type 1 (EHV-1) genome revealed an open reading frame (ORF) whose translated sequence exhibits significant homology to glycoprotein D of herpes simplex virus (HSV) types 1 and 2 and to pseudorabies virus (PRV) glycoprotein 50, the gD equivalent. The ORF of the EHV-1… (More)
