Abstract

Murine herpesvirus 68 (MHV-68) is a naturally occurring herpesvirus of small free-living rodents. In order to facilitate the molecular characterization of the virus genome, a library of cloned restriction fragments has been produced and restriction enzyme cleavage maps deduced for the enzymes HI RI and dIII. The MHV-68 genome comprises a region of unique DNA of approximately 118 kbp which is flanked by variable numbers of a 1·23 kb repeat unit. The organization of the MHV-68 genome is, therefore, most similar to that of the lymphotropic group of herpesviruses which include herpesvirus saimiri and herpesvirus ateles.
