In a recent report, the neurovirulence of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) was mapped to the ICP34.5 gene (J. Deletion of the γ34.5 gene coding for virulence markedly reduces cytotoxicity mediated by herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) (J. In vitro studies were conducted to quantify the effectiveness of low-level direct electric current (DC) on infectivity of Herpes Simplex Virus type 1 (HSV-1), Adenovirus type 5 (AdV-5), and on viability of Vero cells. The ICP34.5 protein of herpes simplex virus type 1 is a neurovirulence factor that plays critical roles in viral replication and anti-host responses. The carboxyl-terminal domain of the gamma134.5 protein of the herpes simplex virus 1 binds to protein phosphatase 1alpha (PP1) and is required to prevent the shut-off of protein synthesis resulting from phosphorylation of the alpha subunit of eIF-2 by the double-stranded RNA-activated protein kinase. The goal of this report was to determine if the region of the LAT gene that is colinear with ICP34.5 (kb 6.2 to 7.1 of LAT) is involved in spontaneous reactivation of herpes simplex virus type 1. The ICP34.5 protein of herpes simplex virus (HSV) is involved in many aspects of viral pathogenesis; promoting neurovirulence, inhibiting interferon-induced shutoff of protein synthesis, interacting with PCNA and TBK1, inhibiting dendritic cell (DC) maturation, and binding to Beclin 1 to interfere with autophagy.

We describe here the neurovirulence properties of a herpes simplex virus type 1 γ34.5 second-site suppressor mutant. The herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) alkaline nuclease, encoded by the UL12 gene, plays an important role in HSV-1 replication, as a null mutant of UL12 displays a severe growth defect. This study challenges the concept that herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) latency represents a silent infection that is ignored by the host immune system, and suggests antigen-directed retention of memory CD8(+) T cells. Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) capsids are initially assembled with an internal protein scaffold. The cellular autophagy response induced by herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) is countered by the viral γ34.5 protein. The herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) gene UL12 encodes a conserved alkaline DNase with orthologues in all herpesviruses. As a large double-stranded DNA virus, herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) assembles capsids in the nucleus where the viral particles exit by budding through the inner nuclear membrane.

The capsid of the herpes simplex virus initially assembles as a procapsid that matures through a massive conformational change of its 182 MDa surface shell. We have previously demonstrated that efficient replication of mutant herpes simplex virus which fails to synthesize the polypeptide ICP34.5 is cell type and cell state dependent. PNAS is the world’s most-cited multidisciplinary scientific serial. The herpes simplex virus (HSV) virion host shutoff protein (vhs) encoded by gene UL41 is an mRNA-specific RNase that triggers accelerated degradation of host and viral mRNAs in infected cells. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. 5-Amino-2,5-dideoxy-5-iodouridine, a nel thymidine analogue, is a potent inhibitor of herpes simplex virus type 1 replication. The herpes simplex virus (HSV) ICP34.5 null mutant 1716 replicates selectively in actively dividing cells and has been proposed as a potential treatment for cancer, particularly brain tumours.

The cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (CDK-5) activating protein, p35, is important for acute herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) replication in mice. The capsid of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) is composed of seven proteins, VP5, VP19C, VP21, VP22a, VP23, VP24, and VP26, which are the products of six HSV-1 genes. Autophagy is an important component of host innate and adaptive immunity to viruses. Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) variant 1716 is deleted in the gene encoding ICP34.5 and is neuroattenuated after intracranial inoculation of mice. The γ34.5 gene of herpes simplex virus (HSV) 2 encodes ICP34.5, which enhances HSV-2 neurovirulence by an unknown mechanism. 5-HT(1B) autoreceptors have been implicated in animal models of stress and are regulated selectively by serotonin-selective reuptake inhibitors such as fluoxetine. eIF-2α phosphatase activity in HSV-1-infected cells.

Transporter associated with antigen (TAP) composed of two subunits TAP1 and TAP2, is required for the translocation of peptides into the ER, where they are loaded onto MHC class I. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Successful infection of herpes simplex virus is dependent upon chromatin modulation by the cellular coactivator host cell factor-1 (HCF-1). Among the many host genes induced by virus infection and interferon, the eIF2alpha protein kinase PKR and the 2′-5′ oligoadenylate synthetase (OAS) are both activated by double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) produced in virus-infected cells. The herpes simplex virus type 1 UL12 gene encodes a pH-dependent deoxyribonuclease termed alkaline nuclease.
