Identification and characterization of an early/late bi-directional promoter element of lumpy skin disease virus (LSDV) is described. The 56 bp element shows substantial structural similarities with other poxvirus promoters, providing further evidence that transcriptional elements are conserved within the Poxviridae. The relative strengths of the LSDV early and late promoters were compared to the vaccinia virus (VV) P7.5K and P11K promoters in transient expression assays.
