5079 UL50 Gallid herpesvirus 1 3239078 57790936 GaHV1_gp05 AJ249803 YP_182340 deoxyuridine triphosphatase Virulence factor The H5 hemagglutinin (HA) gene of a highly pathogenic avian influenza virus (AIV) isolate (A/chicken/Italy/8/98) was cloned and sequenced, and inserted at the non-essential UL50 (dUTPase) gene locus of a virulent strain of infectious laryngotracheitis virus (ILTV). In vitro replication of the HA-expressing ILTV mutants was not affected, and infection of chickens revealed a reduced but still considerable virulence, similar to that of a UL50 gene deletion mutant without foreign gene insertion. Thus, although attenuation remains to be improved, genetically engineered ILTV live-virus vaccines might be used as vectors to protect chickens also against other pathogens.

5086 UL47 1486489 UL47 Virulence factor Experimental infection of chickens demonstrated that UL47-negative ILTV was significantly attenuated in vivo and was shed in reduced amounts, whereas wild-type and rescued viruses caused severe disease and high mortality rates. As all immunized animals were protected against subsequent challenge infection with virulent ILTV, the UL47 deletion mutant might be suitable as a live-virus vaccine. (Helferich et al., 2007) 17325345
