Human herpesvirus infections are endemic and sexual contact is a significant method of transmission for several including both herpes simplex virus 1 and 2 (HSV-1, HSV-2), also human cytomegalovirus (HHV-5) and likely Karposi's sarcoma herpesvirus (HHV-8).
Herpesvirus genomes range in length from 120 to 230 kbp with base composition from 31% to 75% G+C content and contain 60 to 120 genes.
Herpesvirus genes, like the genes of their eukaryotic hosts, are not arranged in operons and in most cases have individual promoters.

Feline herpesvirus is a common cause of eye and upper respiratory infection in cats.
However, herpesvirus is highly contagious among cats, passing from infected cats to other cats through sneezing, coughing, grooming, and simply close contact.
Repeated or chronic herpesvirus infections have been associated with other diseases such as dry eye, symblepharon (adhesion of the conjunctiva to itself or to the cornea), corneal sequestrum (an abnormal brown plaque formation on the cornea), and possibly eosinophilic keratitis (an immune-mediated condition of the cornea).

 Herpesvirus - ANIMAL HEALTH PROBLEMS - Dogs, Cats Herpesvirus
Herpesvirus may be passed to unborn pups in the uterus, or may infect newborn puppies as they pass through the birth canal and come in contact with vaginal cervical secretions.
Dogs are most susceptible to infection when under stress, such as during pregnancy (especially three weeks prior to whelping), in the neonatal period (especially the first three weeks of life), in a boarding kennel, or when competing in events.
Puppies infected with herpesvirus at the time of birth will generally start to show clinical signs of infection at four to six days of age.

 Title of Invention: Equine herpesvirus 1 tk mutants
This technique is not applicable for identifying the EHV-1 tk gene because of the unavailability of monoclonal antibodies to EHV-1 TK and because of the difficulty in preparing monoclonal antibodies to TK.
To identify fragments encoding herpesvirus tk genes, one or more of the following methods have previously been used: (1) molecular hybridization experiments in which labeled DNA fragments from a known viral tk gene and DNA fragments from the unknown virus are hybridized to detect homologous nucleotide sequences; (2) biochemical transformation of mutant tk.sup.- cells (e.g..
That is, there is substantially no homology between the tk genes of various herpesvirus species, i.e., the nucleotide sequences of the tk genes and the amino acid sequences of the TK enzymes of the various herpesvirus species are dissimilar.

 CI Reports #5
The genes are arranged colinearly with those in the genome of the previously sequenced betaherpesvirus, human cytomegalovirus, and has a distinct arrangement of conserved genes relative to the sequenced gammaherpesviruses, herpesvirus saimiri and Epstein-Barr virus, and the alphaherpesviruses, equine herpesvirus-1, varicella-zoster virus, and herpes simplex virus.
Comparisons of predicted amino acid sequences allowed the functions of many human herpesvirus-6 encoded proteins to be assigned and showed the closest relationship in overall number and similarity to human cytomegalovirus products, with approximately 67% homologous proteins as compared to the 21% identified in all herpesviruses.
In addition to the core conserved genes, the genome contains four distinct gene families which may be involved in immune evasion and persistence in immune cells: two have similarity to the chemokine chemotactic/proinflammatory family of cytokines, one to their peptide G-protein-coupled receptors, and a fourth to the immunoglobulin superfamily.
