Abstract

The genome of CMV is extremely large and is more complex than that of any other DNA virus. This genome can be divided into two segments, referred to as long (L) and short (S) components, which are flanked by terminal repetitive sequences (Fig. 7-2). The junction between the L and S component is composed of internal repeat (IR) sequences (designated IRL, 11 kb and IRS, 2 kb), which are flanked by terminal repetitive sequences (designated TRL and TRs); (see Fig. 7-2). The sequences between the repeat regions are unique (U) and are referred to as unique long (UL, 175 kb) and unique short (US, 38 kb) regions [8].
