Open reading frame 37 (ORF37) of Varicella zoster encodes for envelope glycoprotein H (gH). VZV gH is a 118kDa type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein highly conserved among other alphaherpesviruses. VZV gH forms heterodimer with gL (ORF60) and together with gB (ORF31) makes a core fusion machinery required for cell fusion and forming syncytia (Viruses (2012) 4, 800-32). To be functionally competent VZV gH needs chaperone activity of gL. VZV gH is transported and inserted within the plasma membrane, and it was shown that it is endocytosed thus regulating extent of cell-cell fusion (Journal of Virology (2004) 78, 2884–2896). Our anti-VZV ORF37 antibody VZ37.12 works in ELISA (on immunogen) and each LOT is validated for Western blot (of VZV infected cell lysates, described in J Virol. 2013 Jun;87(12):6943-54.).

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.
ORF48 encodes an alkaline nuclease (J Virol. 87: 11936-11938). ORF48 protein is homologous to herpes simplex type 1 (HSV-1) UL12, human cytomegalovirus (hCMV) UL98 and Epstein Barr virus (EBV) BGLF5.
VZV ORF18 (UniProtKB – Q6QCN7) encodes a small subunit of the viral ribonucleotide reductase, which together with the large subunit, encoded by the VZV ORF19, forms the ribonucleotide reductase holoenzyme complex (RNR)
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.
The ORF53, which is predicted to be a tegument protein, consists of 331 amino acids and plays a critical role in cytoplasmic virus egress. ORF53 participates in the final step of tegumentation and envelope acquisition within the host cytoplasm.
