Abstract

Complete DNA sequences for the equine herpesvirus-4 (EHV-4) genes analogous to equine herpesvirus-1 (EHV-1) genes 8, 9, 10, and 11, varicella zoster virus (VZV) genes 7, 8, 9 A, and 9, and herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) genes UL51, UL50, UL49A, and UL49 are presented. The EHV-4 gene corresponding to EHV-1 gene 10/VZV gene 9A/HSV-1 UL49A is of particular interest in that it is a newly identified herpesvirus gene whose product demonstrates features characteristic of membrane-inserted proteins. Furthermore, this gene has counterparts in all herpesvirus genomes sequenced to date.
