A filamentous distribution for the herpes simplex virus type 2-encoded major DNA-binding protein.
Rose DS., Shriver K., Latchman DS., LaThangue NB.
Monoclonal antibodies reacting with the herpes simplex virus (HSV)-encoded major DNA-binding protein defined an intracellular filamentous network. This network was associated predominantly with the infected cell nucleus and occurred in cells infected with HSV type 2. It did not co-distribute with microfilaments, microtubules or intermediate filaments, and DNA synthesis was required for its formation. We suggest explanations for the occurrence and function of this novel filamentous network structure.
