Sequence characteristics of a gene in infectious laryngotracheitis virus homologous to glycoprotein D of herpes simplex virus.

An infectious laryngotracheitis virus (ILTV, gallid herpesvirus 1) gene homologous to glycoprotein D of herpes simplex virus (HSV) was identified and characterized by its nucleotide and derived amino acid sequence. The ILTV gD gene is located in the unique short region (U(s)) and contains an open reading frame capable of specifying a polypeptide of 380 amino acids, including N- and C- terminal hydrophobic domains consistent with signal and anchor regions respectively, and no potential sites for N-glycosylation. Alignment of the amino acid sequence with those published for HSV gD, equine herpesvirus type 1 (EHV-1) gD, pseudorabies virus (PRV) gp50, Marek's disease virus (MDV) gD, herpesvirus of turkeys (HVT) gD and bovine herpesvirus type 1 (BHV-1) gD showed similarities over the N-terminal region, with the greatest differences occurring in the C-terminal. The identical positioning of 6 cysteine residues supports the hypothesis of common ancestry of herpesvirus family (McGeoch, 1990) and is consistent with the essential role of this glycoprotein.[1]
