A recombinant HSV-1 virus expressing EGFP from the HCMV major immediate early promoter (KOS-CMVGFP) was constructed to monitor viral replication and spread in vitro and in mice. Transmission of HSV-2 has become a major health concern, since it has been shown to promote transmission of other sexually transmitted diseases. In an effort to modify FcγR activity without affecting other gE functions, we constructed a mutant virus, NS-gE339, that has four amino acids inserted into gE within the domain homologous to mammalian IgG FcγRs.

Based on conservation between human and mouse NK complexes, the data predict the presence of a human Rhs1 orthologue on chromosome 12p12–13. Kalman CM, Laskin OL.

Herpes simplex virus has developed many strategies for survival in the human host. Additional compounds used to treat HSV infections are famciclovir, the prodrug of penciclovir; ganciclovir; foscarnet; and cidofovir.

Moreover, we demonstrate that treatment of mice with either mAb 1A8 or mAb RB6-8C5 induced systemic neutropenia, however only depletion of Gr-1+ cells was associated with increased virus replication and enhanced lesion severity in the zosteriform model.
