Further characterization of virus obtained from herpes simplex virus type 1 recurrences and primary infections. Influence of the temperature of incubation upon glycoprotein synthesis and virus release. Brief report

Arch Virol. 1986;88(3-4):293-9. doi: 10.1007/BF01310883.


The virus contained in clinical isolates of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) which have not undergone previous in vitro passages (new isolates) differs from HSV-1 prototype strains with respect to infected cell glycoprotein pattern, and, most probably efficiency of virus egress at 37 degrees C. The differences can be abolished by lowering the temperature of incubation to 33 degrees C. A few tissue culture passages cause the conversion of the original virus to a virus undistinguishable from HSV-1 prototype strains with respect to the parameters mentioned above.
