Abstract

We constructed a deletion mutant of feline herpesvirus type 1 (FHV-1) and a recombinant FHV-1. The deletion mutant is the virus with a region (367 bp) deleted from the start codon of thymidine kinase (TK) gene to the Sma I site within the TK gene, and the other is a recombinant FHV-1 expressing Gag protein of feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), in which a cDNA encoding the Gag protein of FIV was inserted at the TK deletion site of the former deletion mutant. These viruses were designated as C7301 ddl TK and C7301 ddl TK-gag, respectively. Growth kinetics of these viruses in Crandell feline kidney cells was similar to that of the parent C7301 strain. By immunoblot analysis, C7301 ddl TK- gag was confirmed to express the FIV Gag precursor protein in the cells.
