Abstract

We have developed a baculovirus expression system for the rapid and efficient production of large quantities (>5 mg/10(8) cells) of ICP8. The recombinant ICP8 is fully functional and binds to single-stranded DNA. Secondary structure calculations from circular dichroism measurements indicate a content of 34.5% alpha-helix and 15.4% beta-sheet. This is the first structural report for ICP8 using CD analysis, which will be very useful for high-throughput assay development and mechanistic studies.
