Cloning of the human cytomegalovirus genome as endonuclease XbaI fragments.


Restriction enzyme XbaI DNA fragments that represent 99% of the sequences from the long and short unique as well as the repeat sequences of the human cytomegalovirus (CMV) genome have been cloned into bacterial plasmid pACYC184. The viral DNA sequences associated with the recombinant plasmids were analyzed by restriction mapping and by hybridization to fragments of authentic viral DNA. The relationship of the cloned viral DNA fragments to the XbaI physical map of the viral genome is demonstrated. Even though large recombinant plasmids ranging from approx. 39 to 1.8 kb were isolated, most if not all of the viral DNA fragments were stable during propagation in Escherichia coli HB101.
