Abstract: Expression of the human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) (AD169) DNA polymerase gene under the control of the polyhedrin promoter of Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus in Spodoptera frugiperda (Sf9) cells has provided a source of highly active CMV DNA polymerase. In extracts from CMV-infected cells, the CMV DNA polymerase is found strongly associated with an additional polypeptide, ICP36. This protein has been identified as the CMV homolog of the herpes simplex virus type 1 UL42 gene product and may have …
