List of recombinant viruses and shuttle and BAC plasmid clones used for their generation

BAC-derived recombinant virus

ICP4 expression cassette on the vector

Shuttle vector

Integrated pM24-BAC-shuttle clone

Description


bM24-CMV

pFLS-CMV

pM24-BAC-CMV

The CMV promoter drives the ICP4 expression.

bM24-null

pFLS-ICP4

pM24-BAC-null

No active promoter drives the ICP4 expression.

bM24-empty

NONE

pFLS2

pM24-BAC-empty

No ICP4 CDS included on the vector. (A shuttle vector containing no ICP4 CDS was constructed)


bM24-BAC

N/A

N/A

pM24-BAC (Non-integrated prototype HSV-BAC)

Genetically identical to the prototype HSV-BAC virus M24-BAC
