Abstract

Structural analysis of the US-segment of a viable temperature sensitive human cytomegalovirus mutant (ts9) by the use of restriction enzymes, specific amplifications by the polymerase chain reaction and DNA sequencing, revealed deletions of open reading frames (orf) US14 and part of US15 in addition to that concerning US1 through US13 as reported previously [9]. It was further verified that the Hind III H-fragment and a major portion of the Hind III W-fragment were duplicated in inverted orientation. By the use of a monospecific antibody prepared against a procaryotic recombinant US11-specific product it was shown that the ts9 mutant was in fact deficient in a 30 kDa polypeptide, the gene product of orf US11.
