Abstract

We reported earlier that an adenovirus (Ad) recombinant expressing the full-length human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) glycoprotein B (gB) gene induces gB-specific cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) responses in CBA (H-2(k)) mice (Berencsi et al., J. Gen. Virol. 74, 257-2512, 1993). Here we show that mice immunized with Ad recombinant viruses expressing truncated forms of the gB gene containing the first 700 (Ad-700), 465 (Ad-465) or 303 (Ad-303) amino acids of gB or an Ad construct containing exon 4 (E4) of the HCMV immediate early 1 (IE1) gene (Ad-IE1 (E4)) demonstrate HCMV-specific CTL 1 responses. These data suggest the importance of the first 303 amino acids of the gB polypeptide and the IE1 E4 product in designing a vaccine to induce anti-HCMV CTL responses.
