Abstract

The genome of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) contains three genes with homology to cellular G protein-coupled receptors (GCRs). Evidence is presented here that all three HCMV GCR genes are transcribed during infection, that they are transcribed as two sets of 3'-coterminal mRNAs, and that their transcription is restricted to the late phase of infection.
