VZV ORF33.5 encodes a scaffold protein involved in the assembly of the viral capsid. ORF33.5 has the capacity to mediate ORF40 translocation into the nucleus of VZV-infected cells and exhibits a nuclear localization phenotype. ORF33.5 is 3′ coterminal with and produced by a proteolytic cleavage of a precursor protein ORF33. Our anti-VZV ORF33.5 antibody VZ 33,5.04 works in ELISA (on immunogen), in IF (on VZV infected cells) and each LOT is validated for Western blot where it specifically recognized a protein of 33kDa in lysates of VZV infected cells (described in J Virol. 2013 Jun;87(12):6943-54).

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.
The ORF50 gene of the varicella-zoster virus (VZV) encodes glycoprotein M which is conserved among all herpesviruses. VZV gM is predicted to be an eight-transmembrane envelope glycoprotein modified with a complex N-linked oligosaccharide.
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).
VZV ORF23 encodes a 24 kDa small capsid surface protein that localizes primarily to cell nuclei during infection and is not essential for viral replication in cell culture, even though its absence disrupts the capsid assembly.
