Cytomegalovirus is an enveloped double stranded DNA virus which in humans (HCMV) is commonly known as human Herpes virus 5 (HHV-5). Glycoprotein B (gB) is the main antigenic protein within the envelope of HCMV. It is required for HCMV mediated membrane fusion along with the gH/gL complex. The unprocessed precursor of HCMV gB is 906 amino acids in length, with a MW of ~100kD.
