Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV) is an a-herpesvirus that causes two related diseases. Primary infection with VZV, causes varicella (chicken pox); the virus then establishes life-long latency in the dorsal root ganglia, and subsequent reactivation causes herpes zoster (shingles). VZV is a ~125kbp DNA virus encoding approximately 70 unique open reading frames, which encode a range of proteins that may be potential targets for the host immune system.
