    There are eight members of the herpes virus family that are known to cause human disease, including not only the herpes simplex viruses (HSV1 and HSV2). HSV1 and HSV2 are family Herpesviridae, subfamily Alpha herpes virinae, genus Simplexvirus. Glycoprotein D(gD) binds specifically to the herpesvirus entry mediator receptor (HVEM), thus providing a strong, fixed attachment to the host cell. These interactions bring the membrane surfaces into mutual proximity and allow for other surface glycoproteins to interact.

Thank you very much for your call today and for your patience.

I've heard back from the lab, and the protein has a MW of 45.50 kDa, including a 26 kDa GST fusion. We did not determine its isoelectric point unfortunately.

I am sorry that we don't have all the information you're looking for, but if you have further questions or need anything else, please let me know and I'll be happy to help.
