Abstract

SUMMARY

A stable mutant of type 2 herpes simplex virus has been obtained with plaques which consist entirely of flat syncytial cells. The plaques could easily be differentiated from wild-type plaques and they retained their morphology on prolonged incubation and when assayed in different cell lines. Serologically, virus reacted as type 2 herpes simplex and showed a rate of reversion from to of 3.6 × 10. The marker should be a valuable third marker for the preparation of a preliminary linkage map of the type 2 virus genome.
