Download Citation | Human alpha and beta herpesviruses and cancer: passengers or foes? | Based on seroepidemiological studies, human herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2 (HSV-1, HSV-2) are put in. There are eight known herpesviruses of humans, and these form three subfamilies (the alpha-, beta-, and gamma-herpesviruses) that have laboratory and clinical features in common. These characteristics range from rashes to malignancies. The methods for prevention and treatment of these infections are discussed in .
Eight human herpesviruses (HHV) have been detected including herpes simplex (HSV), varicella zoster (VZV), cytomegalovirus (CMV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), and human herpesviruses 6, 7, and 8. All are double-stranded DNA enveloped viruses and are further subclassified based on biologic behavior into alpha (HSV-1, 2, and VZV), beta (HHV-6, HHV Most Recent Five Book Chapters Crossley B, Hill A: Interpretation of Equine Laboratory Diagnostics, Chapters 25 Equine Influenza virus, Chapter 26 Alpha-Herpesviruses (EHV-1, EHV-4), ChapEquine Rhinitis viruses (ERAV, ERBV), Nicola Pusterla and Jill Higgins, (ed), Interpretation of Equine Laboratory Diagnostics, Hoboken, NJ
The alpha herpesviruses exhibit a variable host range, efficient destr uction of infected cells, and latent infection of sensory ganglia. In contrast, beta herpesviruses display a restricted host range, long reproductive cycle and slow spread in culture. Infected cells become enlarged and latency is established in lymphoretic ular cells and. Members of the Herpesviridae family of viruses are classified into the alpha, beta and gamma subfamilies. Herpesviruses all have icosahedral symmetry and all are about the same size (approximately nm across). They are among the largest viruses.

Herpes viruses infect most of the human population and persons living past middle age usually have antibodies to most of the above herpes viruses with the exception of HHV Herpes viruses are classified by their location in the latent state (table 2).
This up-to-date and comprehensive volume aims to distill the most important research on alphaherpesvirus molecular virology providing a timely overview of the field. Topics covered include: transcriptional regulation, DNA replication, translational control, virus entry and capsid assembly, the role of microRNAs in infection and oncolytic vectors for cancer therapy.
The alpha herpesviruses are an important group of viruses. In this timely book internationally recognized experts, highlight the more provocative and exciting findings in herpesvirus research. Each chapter is a review of a specific area with an emphasis on recent advances and the latest developments.
Topics include: multifunctional proteins, advances in DNA replication, new information on the. Herpesvirus Particle HSV virus particle Note that all herpesviruses have identical morphology and cannot be distinguished from each other under electron microscopy.
Properties • Belong to the alpha herpesvirus subfamily Alpha Herpesviruses book herpesviruses • Double stranded DNA enveloped virus with a genome of around kb • The genome of HSV-1 and HSV Eight herpesviruses are known to cause disease in humans, most notably in children and immunocompromised individuals.
The family is divided into three subfamilies, alpha- beta- and gamma-herpesviruses. This division was originally based on biological similarities and later confirmed by genome sequencing (Pellett & Roizman, ). There are five herpesviruses (from the family Alpha-herpesviridae) that infect horses; EHV-1, 2, 3, 4 and 5; however, it is EHV-1 and EHV-4 that cause serious illness.
Alpha herpesviruses. The members of the alpha herpesvirus sub-family are characterized by an extremely short reproductive cycle (hours), prompt destruction of the host cell, and the ability to replicate in a wide variety of host tissues.
They characteristically establish latent infection in sensory nerve ganglia. This sub-family consists of. Herpesviridae is a large family of DNA viruses that cause infections and certain diseases in animals, including humans.
The members of this family are also known as family name is derived from the Greek word herpein ("to creep"), referring to spreading cutaneous lesions, usually involving blisters, seen in flares of herpes simplex 1, herpes simplex 2 and herpes zoster (shingles).Class: incertae sedis.

We describe the assembly and use of compartmented neuronal cultures for in vitro study of directional infection of neurons by alpha herpesviruses. Selective application of viral inoculum to only one compartment ensures that the remainder of the neuron is not contaminated by input inoculum.

Eight human herpesviruses were discovered, which are subdivided into three genera: alpha- beta- and gamma-herpesvirus. Here, we focus on the herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), a prototype of alpha-herpesvirus.
Genre/Form: Electronic books: Additional Physical Format: Print version: Alpha herpesviruses. Wymondham, Norfolk, UK: Caister Academic Press, © This comprehensive account of the human herpesviruses provides an encyclopedic overview of their basic virology and clinical manifestations.
This group of viruses includes human simplex type 1 and 2, Epstein–Barr virus, Kaposi’s Sarcoma-associated herpesvirus, cytom-egalovirus, HHV6A, 6B, and 7, and varicella-zoster virus.
The viral diseases and cancers they cause are significant and often. In the nearly two decades since the popularization of green fluorescent protein (GFP), fluorescent protein-based methodologies have revolutionized molecular and cell biology, allowing us to literally see biological processes as never before.
Naturally, this revolution has extended to virology in general, and to the study of alpha herpesviruses in by:. The development and use of alpha-herpesviruses-expressing fluorescent proteins / Gregory A. Smith and Bruce W. Banfield The induction of apoptosis by HSV-1 / Christine M.
