Human fibroblast cells infected with varicella-zoster virus (VZV) showed a slight increase in lipoprotein synthesis, with the production of two major viral lipoproteins, as detected by radioimmunoprecipitation (RIP). Three bands of Mr 73,000, 90,000 and 97,000 were identified as forms of the VZV gpI glycoprotein. All three incorporated both palmitic and myristic acid, and were shown by thin-layer chromatography to contain myristic, palmitic and stearic acids. A very strong band corresponding to 7,000 Mr, which may represent the product of VZV gene 49, was detected after RIP and in VZV-infected cells, and was shown to contain almost entirely myristic acid. Several minor bands were also detected. The possible functions of the lipoproteins are discussed.
