Disease relevance of US12

  • The right end of US in the HSV-1 genome was the A of the ATG initiation codon of gene US12, and thus the ATG triplet may act as a buffer to prevent expansion of RS, as is the case with HSV-2 [1].
  • Sequential genital HSV-1 isolates were genotyped by PCR amplification of the hypervariable regions located within the HSV-1 genes US1 and US12 [2].
  • Three mutants of herpes simplex virus type 2: one lacking the genes US10, US11 and US12 and two in which Rs has been extended by 6 kb to 0.91 map units with loss of Us sequences between 0.94 and the Us/TRs junction [3].

High impact information on US12


Biological context of US12

  • Variations in length of the major DNA fragment, containing reiteration I (within the a sequence) and/or reiteration IV (within introns of genes US1 and US12), were detected between isolates of each multiple-recurrence set, but not of the primary-recurrence set [5].
