Abstract

SUMMARY

The replication of herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 1 in macrophages grown from spleen cells of mouse strains susceptible to HSV infection was very sensitive to interferon (IFN). Different types of mouse IFN (α, β, γ) exhibited similar antiviral activities. However, treatment of cells with IFN-γ in combination with IFN-α or IFN-β resulted in a synergistic inhibition of virus growth. As shown by assaying HSV DNA polymerase, IFN inhibited expression of the β-genes. Inhibition of enzyme induction correlated well with the reduction of viral yield. Induction of HSV DNA polymerase was delayed by IFN in a dose-dependent manner. These results show that IFN inhibits HSV replication at an early step prior to or during the synthesis of β-proteins.
