Abstract

In order to identify the products of the equine herpesvirus type 4 (EHV-4) gI and gE genes, we have constructed recombinant vaccinia viruses containing the putative gI or gE genes. These recombinant viruses synthesized EHV-4 gI and gE with apparent molecular masses of 75 and 8OkDa, respectively. Antibodies raised against both recombinant viruses detected a 75kDa gI and a 95kDa gE in EHV-4-infected cells. The results also suggest that the EHV-4gI and gE would form a complex like in other herpesviruses.
