The DNA fragment representing for Pseudorabies gp50 and gp60(Shope) was cloned by recombinant techniques. The viral DNA was extracted from the infected cells and digested with Bam HI. The 6.8 Kb of Bam HI fragment was isolated from agarose gel and further digested with Nde I followed by Klenow treatment. The blunt ended 4.9Kb fragment was cloned into pTZ18R plasmid vector. The upstream region of gp50 was further manipulated to remove its 5' promoter region and create EcoRl site for possible eukaryotic expression system. The result of partial sequencing of cloned DNA indicated that Shope strain showed 95% homology with gp50 of Rice strain.
