UV Inactivation of Viruses

We are thinking about UV inactivating HCMV (a herpesvirus)....

What exactly is thought to happen to the proteins in the tegument?
Is there any gene expression from the vDNA, even if a virion doesn't form a
plaque?

If you have any experience with UV irradiating viruses we would appreciate
your thoughts on the above,

Cheers, Cathy Patterson
