Abstract: To identify regions in the UL42 protein of herpes simplex virus type 1 which affect viral DNA polymerase activity, a series of 96 overlapping pentadecapeptides spanning the entire 488 amino acids of the UL42 protein were synthesized and tested for their ability to inhibit polymerase activity on a primed single-stranded M13 DNA template. Two assays were used: formation of full-length double-stranded M13 molecules and rate of incorporation of deoxyribonucleoside triphosphates. Peptides from five noncontiguous re…
