MHV-68, closely related to human gammaherpesviruses (Epstein-Barr virus and Kaposi's sarcoma herpesvirus), is a natural pathogen of murid rodents commonly infested with ticks. ORF59 plays an essential role in the viral lytic DNA replication by acting as the polymerase accessory subunit. Stimulates the viral DNA polymerase activity and appears to function with it as a holoenzyme. Increases the processivity of the viral polymerase, probably by acting as a sliding clamp that prevents dissociation of the polymerase from the active template
