Isolation of a Marek's disease virus (MDV) recombinant containing the lacZ gene of Escherichia coli stably inserted within the MDV US2 gene.

By J L Cantello, A S Anderson, A Francesconi and R W Morgan


We have isolated a stable, recombinant Marek's disease virus (MDV) containing the lacZ gene of Escherichia coli inserted into the unique short region of the genome. The nucleotide sequence of the insertion site indicates that it lies within a sequence homologous to the US2 gene of herpes simplex virus. Stable insertion of the lacZ gene into the MDV US2 gene indicates that the site is nonessential for MDV growth in cell culture
