VZV ORF36 is present in the central region of the UL segment and consists of 1026 nucleotides. The encoded 38 kDa thymidine kinase (TK) protein mediates the transfer of gamma-phospho-group from ATP to thymidine, forming dTMP which is then used by DNA polymerase for viral replication. TK is essential in maintaining VZV replication both in infection and latency, and its active sites are highly conserved among all herpesviruses. Our anti-VZV ORF36 antibody VZ 36.14 works in ELISA (on immunogen) and each LOT is validated for Western blot where it specifically recognized a protein of 38 kDa in lysates of VZV infected cells (described in J Virol. 2013 Jun;87(12):6943-54).

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.
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.
