Abstract

Glycoprotein B (gB) is the most conserved glycoprotein of herpesviruses and plays important roles in virus infectivity. Two intervening heptad repeat (HR) sequences were found in the C-terminal half of all herpesvirus gBs analysed. A synthetic peptide derived from the HR region (aa 477–510) of bovine herpesvirus type 1 (BoHV-1) gB was studied for its ability to inhibit virus replication. The peptide interfered with cell-to-cell spread and consistently inhibited replication of BoHV-1, with a 50 % effective concentration value (EC) of 5 μM. Inhibition of replication was obtained not only with herpesviruses including pseudorabies virus and herpes simplex virus type 1 but also partly with Newcastle disease virus. Possible mechanisms of membrane fusion inhibition by the peptide are discussed.
