Abstract

Eco RI fragment G of equine herpesvirus 4 strain 405/76 (EHV 4.405/76) is located at the left end of the unique short region close to or extending into the internal repeat region of the prototypic arrangement of the genome. The nucleotide sequence of two subclones designated HS and G 19, contiguous within Eco RI fragment G, was determined for each strand by obtaining a nested set of deletion clones of these double-stranded DNA plasmids. Analysis of the nucleotide sequence revealed that the two subclones contain 5449 base pairs with four complete open reading frames (ORFs) and part of a fifth ORF. Comparison of the predicted amino acid sequences of these reading frames showed that they corres..
