High impact information on MuHV1gpM99


Biological context of MuHV1gpM99


Anatomical context of MuHV1gpM99

  • Presence of AM3/pp50 mRNA, as well as IE-1 transcripts, was confirmed by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction in 3 of 5 latently infected spleens [11].
  • During transient expression of pp50 in COS-1 cells, the phosphoprotein was readily detectable in the nuclei, indicating that it possesses a nuclear localization signal (NLS) [12].
  • Similarly, during MCMV infection of Balb/3T3 fibroblasts, pp50 was present in the nuclei of infected cells between 8 and 24 hr postinfection, suggesting that the protein contains a functional nuclear targeting sequence [4].
  • We have identified an abundant 50K phosphoprotein (pp50) in MCMV-infected 3T3-L1 cells and shown by immunofluorescence microscopy and surface-iodination experiments that pp50 is localized to the plasma membrane of the infected cell [10].

Associations of MuHV1gpM99 with chemical compounds

  • Finally, results from our analysis by nonreducing and native gel electrophoresis, as well as fractionation by sucrose gradients suggested that pp50 expressed in the absence of viral infection can form disulfide-linked homopolymers [4].
