Abstract: The DNA sequence of 3,240 nucleotides of the XbaI G fragment located in the unique long (UL) region of the equine herpesvirus 1 genome revealed two major open reading frames (ORFs) designated UL3 and UL4. The UL3 ORF of 470 amino acids (aa) maps at nucleotides (nt) 4450 to 3038 from the long terminus, and its predicted 51.4-kDa protein product exhibits significant homology to the ICP27 alpha regulatory protein of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1; 32% identity) and to the ORF4 protein of varicella-zoster viru…
