Vmw65, the Herpes Simplex Virus trans-activator of immediate-early genes, was expressed in insect cells using a recombinant baculovirus expression vector and partially purified. Insect cell-derived Vmw65 was shown to be indistinguishable from authentic Vmw65 present in purified HSV-1 virions based on electrophoretic mobility, immunoreactivity with a monoclonal antibody, and ability to interact with cellular factors to form a protein/DNA complex with oligonucleotides containing a TAATGARAT element.
