The herpesvirus saimiri ORF50 gene, encoding a transcriptional activator homologous to the Epstein-Barr virus R protein, is transcribed from two distinct promoters of different temporal phases.

Abstract

The mRNA species encoding the herpesvirus saimiri (HVS) homolog of the Epstein-Barr virus R transcriptional activator (termed ORF50) have been identified and used to determine transcriptional start sites within the gene. The first transcript is spliced and starts from a promoter within ORF49 containing a single intron; the second is produced from a promoter… (More)
