  • BETA-GALACTOSIDASE AS A MARKER IN THE PERIPHERAL AND NEURAL TISSUES OF THE HERPES-SIMPLEX VIRUS-INFECTED MOUSE VIROLOGY Ho, D. Y., Mocarski, E. S. 1988; 167 (1): 279-283

    Abstract:

    We have inserted a modified Escherichia coli lacZ gene, placed under the control of herpes simplex virus alpha 4 or beta 8 regulatory signals, into the HSV-1 genome disrupting the viral thymidine kinase gene. Using beta-galactosidase as an in situ indicator of viral gene expression, we detected expression from these recombinant HSV in dermal and neural tissues of the BALB/c mouse. Our detection of beta-galactosidase expression in neuronal cells indicates that TK-deficient viruses are capable of invading mouse neuronal cells and expressing up to the beta class of gene product.
