Open reading frame 14 (ORF14) of Varicella zoster encodes for late glycoprotein C (gC). VZV gC is 105-kDa highly glycosylated protein with almost one third of its molecular weight consisting of oligosaccharide chains on four predicted N-linked glycosylation sites and 25 O-linked mucin type sites (Journal of Virology (1990) 64, 4540-8, Virology (2008) 382, 171-81). Unlike other major glycoproteins in herpesviruses, it shares only 30% homology with HSV-1 gC (Reviews of infectious diseases (1991) 13, pp. S960–S963). It shows delayed transcription and protein expression when compared with other major VZV glycoproteins (gE, gI, gH and gB) as well compared with HSV gC in infected cells (Virology (2008) 382, 171-81, Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology (2010) 342, 113-28. VZV gC expression is reduced in VZV-infected neurons on both transcriptional and protein level (Journal of Virology (2013) 87, 9643–9648 6). Our anti VZV ORF14 antibody VZ 14.12 shows that the VZV gC is located predominantly in the Golgi. Our anti-VZV ORF14 antibody VZ 14.12 works in ELISA (on immunogen), IF (on VZV infected cells) and each LOT is validated for Western blot (of VZV infected cell lysates, described in J Virol. 2013 Jun;87(12):6943-54.).

Immediate-early 62 protein (IE62) is a homolog of herpes simplex type 1 (HSV-1) ICP4. These two proteins have conserved DNA bidnding domain,while not activation domain (J Virol 1993. 67: 4246-4251).
VZV ORF21 encodes a 115 kDa protein that is essential for viral replication in cell culture and is also expressed during, but is not required for establishment of latency in dorsal root and cranial nerve ganglia.
ORF31 is one of five glycoprotein ORFs in VZV genome. It encodes for gB, a type I membrane protein containing 868 aa which in mature form exists as a highly glycosylated disulfide-linked heterodimer (Annu Rev Microbiol 1990. 44: 59-80).
