Herpes simplex virus DNA polymerase, thymidine kinase and deoxyribonuclease activities in cells infected with wild type, ultraviolet-irradiated and defective virus.

Abstract

The DNA polymerase, thymidine kinase and deoxyribonuclease activities were studied in cells infected with wild type (wt), ultraviolet (UV)-irradiated and defective herpes simplex virus type 1. All three enzymatic activities were expressed in cells infected with wt virus. In cells infected with UV-irradiated virus, the thymidine kinase and deoxyribonuclease activities were inhibited and the DNA polymerase activity was markedly suppressed. In cells producing defective virus, there was thymidine kinase activity, but the viral deoxyribonuclease activity was considerably reduced. The DNA polymerase activity was fully expressed in cells producing defective virus at passage level 5, but at passage level 6, the activity of the viral DNA polymerase declined.
