Part of the The Viruses book series (VIRS)


The early studies on the B virus (Herpesvirus simiae, herpesvirus B, simian herpesvirus, cercopithecine herpesvirus 1) are associated with the names of such pioneers in medical virology as Sabin and Wright (1934), Sabin (1934a-c), Burnet et al. (1939a,b), Melnick and Banker (1954), and Youngner (1956). In the 1930s, the virus was isolated and its cross-neutralization with herpes simplex virus (HSV) discovered. Some biological and morphological parameters were established in the 1950s. It was almost half a century, however, before the genetic material of the B virus could be characterized to allow for a clear differentiation from HSV and before the antigenic cross-reactivity with HSV and the bovine herpes mammillitis virus [bovid herpesvirus 2 (BHV-2)] could be pinpointed to major glycoprotein species (Sterz et al., 1973–1974; Ludwig et al.,1978; Norrild et al., 1978b; Pauli et al., 1981; and further details presented in this review).
