An important site for bovine herpesvirus 1 (BoHV-1) latency is sensory neurons within trigeminal ganglia (TG). The synthetic corticosteroid dexamethasone consistently induces BoHV-1 reactivation from latency. Expression of four Krüppel-like transcription factors (KLF), i.e., KLF4, KLF6, PLZF (promyelocytic leukemia zinc finger), and KLF15, are induced in TG neurons early during dexamethasone-induced reactivation. The glucocorticoid receptor (GR) and KLF15 form a feed-forward transcription loop that cooperatively transactivates the BoHV-1 immediate early transcription unit 1 (IEtu1) promoter that drives bovine infected cell protein 0 (bICP0) and bICP4 expression. Since the bICP0 gene also contains a separate ea... More
