Fig. 28.7

Splicing pattern of transcripts and location of promoters at either end of the viral genome. The K1 gene at the “left” end of the viral genome is controlled by a promoter located next to the terminal repeat region. At the opposite end, the K15 gene is multiply and alternatively spliced to produce a group of proteins. A K15 promoter element is located adjacent to the terminal repeat region.
