VP26 is the smallest capsid protein of herpes simplex virus type 1 and is encoded by the UL35 open reading frame. It resides on the outer capsid surface, interacting with VP5 in a one to one stoichiometry in the hexons that comprise capsids. A null mutation in the gene encoding VP26 was generated and transferred into the KOS genome.

During assembly of the herpes simplex type 1 capsid, the major capsid protein VP5 interacts with the C-terminal residues of the scaffold proteins encoded by UL26 and UL26.5. Subsequent to capsid assembly the scaffold proteins are cleaved at the maturation site by a serine protease also encoded by UL26, thereby enabling the bulk of the scaffold proteins to be released from the capsid.

The herpes simplex virus type 1 capsid is composed of seven capsid proteins which are termed VP5, VP19c, VP21, VP22a, VP23, VP24, and VP26. Major capsid protein VP5 is encoded by the gene UL19. UL18, whose transcript is 3' coterminal with that of VP5, specifies capsid protein VP23.

The UL24 gene of herpes simplex virus overlaps the viral thymidine kinase (tk) gene. Most previous studies of UL24 have examined UL24 mutants that have also contained tk and sometimes other mutations. To address the importance of UL24 for viral replication in cell culture and in infections of a mammalian host, we constructed a mutant virus containing a UL24 nonsense mutation that does not affect TK activity and a second mutant that contains clustered point mutations in UL24 and a mutation in tk that does not by itself affect the ability of the virus to replicate acutely in mouse ganglia or to reactivate from latent infection following corneal inoculation of mice.

Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) intermediate capsids are composed of seven proteins, VP5, VP19C, VP21, VP22a, VP23, VP24, and VP26, and the genes that encode these proteins, UL19, UL38, UL26, UL26.5, UL18, UL26, and UL35, respectively. The UL26 gene encodes a protease that cleaves itself and the product of the UL26.
