Abstract: Herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) is one of nine different herpesvirus infecting man. They are all capable of establishing a life-long latent state following the primary infection. HSV-1 as well as other herpesviruses may reactivate from the latent state and give rise to a productive infection with clinical symptoms or asymptomatic shedding. HSV-1 infections are primarily treated by targeting the viral DNA replication carried out by a molecular machinery, a replisome, encoded by the virus. Here... more
