Deletion of DNA sequence in a nononcogenic variant of Herpesvirus saimiri.


The 110-kilobase-pair stretch of unique sequence DNA of Herpesvirus saimiri is flanked by highly repetitive DNA. Detailed restriction endonuclease mapping has localized the left junction of repetitive and unique DNA to a 100-base-pair region. H. saimiri 11att, a replication competent nononcogenic variant of strain 11, has a deletion of 2.3 kilobase pairs of sequence information that spans this left junction of repetitive and unique DNA.
