Topic: Varicellovirus


In the News (Sun 21 Jul 19)

  
  Enquist Laboratory, Princeton University   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Eight different herpesviruses have humans as their natural hosts: herpes simplex virus type 1, herpes simplex virus type 2, varicella-zoster virus, Epstein-Barr virus, human cytomegalovirus, human herpesvirus 6, human herpesvirus 7, human herpesvirus 8 (also known as Kaposi’s sarcoma-associated herpesvirus).
There are four genera in the alphaherpesvirinae subfamily: simplexvirus, varicellovirus, Marek's disease-like viruses, and infectious laryngotracheitis-like viruses.
There are 18 members of the varicellovirus genus and human varicella-zoster virus is the type species.

 Pfam 20.0 : Varicello_UL45   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
This family consists of several Varicellovirus UL45 or gene 15 proteins.
The Equine herpesvirus 1 UL45 protein represents a type II membrane glycoprotein which has found to be non-essential for EHV-1 growth in vitro but deletion reduces the viruses' replication efficiency [1].

 Genetic Analysis of Herpesvirus   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
The Herpesviridae family of viruses is divided into subfamilies (alpha-, beta- and gammaherpesviruses) based on biologic properties of the agents.
Alphaherpesviruses are fast-growing, cytolytic viruses that tend to establish latent infections in neurons; herpes simplex virus (genus Simplexvirus) and varicellazoster virus (genus Varicellovirus) are members of this subfamily.
There are two types of HSV, named HSV-1 and HSV-2 or human herpesvirus types 1 and 2, with approximately 50% DNA sequence similarity between the types.

There is a high homology, with very conserved fragments, between aminoacid 49 to 571 of the predicted orf (one in the normal sense and other in complementary) and aminoacid 382 to 881 and 593 to 1094 of the two protein obtained with Blast.
These ones belong to two different strains of suid herpesvirus (or pseudorabia virus), member of the genus Varicellovirus, subfamily Alphaherpesvirinae (Evolutionary relatedness of Herpesvirus and their Subfamilies), identifyed as probable nuclear antigen and hypotethical protein respectively.
Moreover, although the two suid herpesvirus proteins are different, the compared fragments are identical, so we can assume that form a common domain in the two proteins, shared with EHV1.

Infectious bovine rhinotracheitis/infectious pustular vulvovaginitis (IBR/IPV), caused by bovine herpesvirus 1 (BHV1), is a disease of domestic and wild cattle.
BHV1 is a member of the genus Varicellovirus in the subfamily alphaherpesvirinae, which belongs to the Herpesviridae family.
The viral genome consists of double-stranded DNA that codes for about 70 proteins, of which 33 structural and up to 15 nonstructural proteins have been demonstrated.
