The UL11 gene of herpes simplex virus 1 was reported to encode a myristylated protein (C. A. MacLean, B. Clark, and D. J. McGeoch, J. Gen. Virol. 70:3147-3157, 1989). To determine the function of the gene product, a recombinant virus (R7219) lacking 61% of the codons (176 bp of the 288-bp coding domain) was genetically engineered. The deletion mutant replicated in all cell lines tested, albeit to titers 30- to 250-fold lower than those obtained from cells infected with wild-type virus. Electron… CONTINUE READING
