Abstract

The complete DNA sequence coding for the immediate-early protein (IE180) of pseudorabies virus was determined. The coding region of IE180 is 4380 nucleotides for 1460 amino acid residues. G+C content of the non-coding portion of the IE gene is 70.3% while the G+C content of the coding portion is considerably higher at 80.1%. Correspondingly, codons consisting mainly of Gs and Cs are favoured. Clusters of amino acid homologies are observed among IE180 of pseudorabies virus, ICP4 of herpes simplex virus type-1 and IE140 of varicella-zoster virus, and are organized similarly in all three polypeptides. Functions exhibited by IE180 are assigned, tentatively, to structural domains of the molecule by analogy to the HSV-1 ICP4 polypeptide.
