abstract

  • The herpes simplex virus ribonucleotide reductase is associated with two viral proteins which are both immunoprecipitated by monoclonal antibodies specific for the enzyme. We separated the two proteins and showed that individual antibodies react solely with one or the other. In addition, antibodies to either protein can neutralize enzymatic activity. Our data demonstrate that the proteins are associated in a complex and constitute the subunits of the enzyme.
