Herpes simplex virus-1 scaffold protein

encoded by overlapping in-frame UL26 and UL26.5 transcripts; essential for formation and efficient maturation of capsids; N-terminal protease domain, and its C-terminal oligomerization and capsid protein-binding domains are identical to those of UL26.5. The UL26 protease cleaves itself, releasing minor scaffold proteins VP24 and VP21protease cleavage produces two polypeptides, Prn and ICP35a; do not confuse with HSV-1 assembly protein ICP35
