Abstract
This study reports that in bovine herpesvirus 4, glycoprotein B (gB) is a heterodimer and a major component of the virion, unlike gBs of Epstein-Barr virus (gp110) and murine gammaherpesvirus 68, two other gammaherpesviruses. These are new characteristics with regard to the general features of gB in the Gammaherpes-virinae subfamily.
