HSV-1 infected cells
Springer Online Journal Archives 1860-2000
Abstract HEp-2 cells, which were infected with HSV-1, excrete besides other proteins a soluble glycoprotein (Mr 125000–130000) related to the virus protein gC. The excretion of the glycoprotein and the production of extracellular virus particles is reduced to a similar extent when the cells were treated with monensin. Possible consequences of the excretion of soluble viral proteins to a modulation of the immune response are discussed.
