Abstract: Glycoproteins C (gC) from herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and HSV-2, gC-1 and gC-2, bind the human complement fragment C3b, although the two glycoproteins differ in their abilities to act as C3b receptors on infected cells and in their effects on the alternative complement pathway. Previously, we identified three regions of gC-2 (I, II, and III) which are important for C3b binding. In this study, our goal was to identify C3b-binding sites on gC-1 and to continue our analysis of gC-2. We constructed a large…
