Abstract In order to examine cellular gene involvement in HSV-1 expression, we constructed different rat embryo fibroblast cell lines immortalized by adenovirus E1A or c-myc, with or without the human EJ bladder carcinoma transforming oncogene EJ-ras. HSV-1 multiplication was strongly inhibited in cells expressing EJ-ras genes compared to immortalized control cells. Virus adsorption and penetration were not quantitatively modified, but HSV-1 DNA replication was inhibited. The expression of viral thymidine kinase (TK) activity after infection by recombinant virus with the TK coding sequence under immediate-early (IE) promoter control showed that IE gene expression is inhibited in cells expressing EJ-ras. Analysis of IE gene transcription by Northern-blot hybridization and by nuclear run-off transcription assay indicates that this inhibition takes place at the transcriptional level.
