The product of gene US11 of herpes simplex virus type 1 is expressed as a true late gene.


The genes of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) can be divided into at least three temporally regulated groups termed immediate early (IE), early and late. We have studied in detail the expression of a member of the late class of genes, US11, which encodes a polypeptide of apparent molecular weight 21K. Highly specific and sensitive probes were used to… (More)
