Abstract

Partial sequencing of the dIII C fragment of murine cytomegalovirus (MCMV) revealed an open reading frame of 2172 nucleotides in length encoding a 724 amino acid protein with a predicted of 80.4K. Analysis of the predicted amino acid sequence revealed homology with glycoprotein H (gH) from a number of other herpesviruses. MCMV gH showed strongest amino acid identity with human (H) CMV and human herpesvirus 6 gH, and less identity with the gH protein sequences of Epstein-Barr virus, varicella-zoster virus and herpes simplex virus type 1. The greatest identity between MCMV and HCMV gH occurs in the C-terminal region. The MCMV gH is characterized by having a 14 amino acid signal sequence, a 23 amino acid transmembrane region, a seven amino acid positively charged cytoplasmic anchor sequence and eight putative -linked glycosylation sites. Comparison of MCMV gH with that of HCMV indicates that there are 12 conserved cysteine residues and three conserved potential -linked glycosylation sites.
