|Keywords||Cercopithecine Herpesvirus 1 / B virus / Macaques / ELISA / Herpesvirus papio 2|
Following results were obtained during 2000-2002.
1.The safety and high-specific antibody assay kit for simian B herpesvirus antibody was determined with some modification.
2.We examined the sequence and genetic arrangement of the US region of the monkey B virus (Cercopithecine Herpesvirus 1) genome. As the results, 13 genes identified of monkey B virus genome were arranged in the same order and orientation as in herpes simplex virus. (DDBJ/EMBL/GeneBank, accession # : AB074432)
3.We demonstrated a unique genotype of monkey B virus indigenous to native Japanese Macaques.
4.The complete DNA sequence of the unique long (UL) region of the monkey B virus was determined. Based on sequence homology and the presence of transcriptional control element motifs, homologues of every open reading frame present in the (U_L) region of the Human herpesvirus 1 and Human herpesvirus 2 genomes ware, identified in BV.(DDBJ/EMBL/GeneBank, accession #: AB096160)
