Abstract

The ICP34.5 protein facilitates herpes simplex virus replication by binding and activating protein phosphatase 1 (PP1) by means of a very conserved C-terminal GADD34-like region. Natural variants of the ICP34.5 differing in the number of arginines in an Arg-rich cluster at the N terminus and the number of Pro-Ala-Thr repeats in the central bridge region of the protein were cloned as fusion proteins with a reporter peptide (c-Myc or hrGFP) at the C terminus. The natural variants were obtained from strains differing in passage history, tissue culture behavior, and neuroinvasive disease potential. In transfected cells, these variants localized to different subcellular compartments. The N-terminal Arg-rich cluster acted as a cellular localization signal for discrete regions of the nucleus and cytoplasm, but the ultimate location of ICP34.5 was determined by the number of Pro-Ala-Thr repeats in the central bridge region. PP1 colocalized with the ICP34.5 variant in cells expressing the ICP34.5. The ICP34.5-mediated, herpes simplex virus strain-dependent differences in the modulation of PP1 location and function may be responsible for the strain-associated differences in tissue culture behavior and virulence of the virus.
