Abstract

The gene of glycoprotein A of Marek's disease virus (MDV) detected to mRNA species (3.7 and 2.1 kb) by Northern blot hybridization. These two mRNA species were also detected in RNA extracted from herpesvirus of turkeys (HVT)-infected chick embryo fibroblasts (CEF) and from the MSB-1 cell line.
