Abstract: Three transcripts map to the varicella-zoster virus (VZV) open reading frame (ORF) 67, which encodes glycoprotein IV (gplV). All of these transcripts are polyadenylated and are transcribed from left to right towards the genomic terminal short repeats. Previous Northern (RNA) blot analyses suggested that the most abundant of these transcripts (1.65 kb) might code for gpIV. We performed Si nuclease protection and primer extension assays and determined that the 5' terminus of the 1.65-kb transcript maps 91 bp ups…
