Open reading frame 68 (ORF68) of Varicella zoster encodes for essential, most immunogenic and most abundant glycoprotein E (gE). VZV gE is a typical type 1 transmembrane protein containing both N-linked and O-linked glycans, sialylation, sulfation and Ser/Thr and Tyr phosphorylation and fully modified has 98-kDa (Journal of Virology (1997) 71, 110-9). It forms a complex with gI (ORF67) during viral infection. Mature VZV gE/gI complex can be found predominantly on the cell membrane of infected cells in culture and in vivo and it is subsequently internalized through use of the respective internalization signals (Journal of Virology (1998) 72, 1542-51). This complex shows high similarity with FcgRII and binds human (rabbit) IgG Fc fragment (Journal of Virology (1992) 66, 3643–3651, Virology (1190) 178, 263-72). VZV gE-gB coexpression enhanced the fusogenic properties of gB and can substitute gL to facilitate trafficking of gH to the cell surface (Journal of Virology (2001) 75, 9483–9492). Our anti-VZV ORF68 antibody VZ 68.03 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 described in J Virol. 2013 Jun;87(12):6943-54.).

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).
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.
VZV ORF19 encodes a large, N-terminal subunit 1 of the viral ribonucleotide reductase, which together with the small subunit, encoded by the VZV ORF 18, forms the ribonucleotide reductase holoenzyme complex (RNR).
