Abstract: The tegument proteins of human cytomegalovirus are introduced into cells as components of infectious virus. The tegument proteins may affect viral and cellular transcription prior to the synthesis of the immediate-early viral regulatory proteins. The phosphorylated tegument protein of 71 kDa (pp7l) is reported to be encoded by the UL82 gene. The UL82 gene products transactivated promoters containing upstream ATF or AP-1 binding sites. In contrast, the phosphorylated tegument protein of 65 kDa (pp65), encoded b…
