The enhancement effect of pp38 gene product on the activity of its upstream bi-directional promoter in Marek's disease virus

There was a bi-directional promoter between gene 38 kd phosphorylated protein (pp38) gene and 1.8-kb mRNA transcript gene family in the genome of Marek's disease virus (MDV). In this study, enhanced green fluorescence protein (EGFP) reporter plamids, pP(pp38)-EGFP and pP(1.8-kb)-EGFP, were constructed under this bi-directional promoter in two directions… CONTINUE READING
