Molecular genetics of herpesviruses: a recombinant technology approach.
Herpesvirus genetics have long been hindered by the large size of the typical herpesvirus genome and the consequent recalcitrance of these genomes to manipulation by standard molecular genetics techniques. However, two ...
Isolation of human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs)
In this appendix, several basic methods are described for preparation of primary B lymphocyte
Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus-encoded latency-associated nuclear antigen modulates K1 expression through its cis-acting elements within the terminal repeats.
K1 is the first open reading frame encoded by Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) and lies positionally to the immediate right of the terminal repeats. K1 is a transmembrane glycoprotein having a functional ...
Epstein-Barr virus nuclear antigen 3C interacts with and enhances the stability of the c-Myc oncoprotein
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) was the first human DNA virus to be associated with cancer. Its oncogenic potential was further demonstrated by its ability to transform primary B lymphocytes in vitro. EBV nuclear antigen 3C ...
Nm23-H1 modulates the activity of the guanine exchange factor Dbl-1
Cytoskeleton rearrangement is necessary for tumor invasion and metastasis. Cellular molecules whose role is to regulate components of the cytoskeletal structure can dictate changes in cellular morphology. One of these ...
Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus latent protein LANA interacts with HIF-1 alpha to upregulate RTA expression during hypoxia: Latency control under low oxygen conditions
Hypoxia can induce lytic replication of Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) in primary effusion lymphoma (PEL) cells. However, the molecular mechanism of lytic reactivation of KSHV by hypoxia remains unclear. ...
Induction of Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus latency-associated nuclear antigen by the lytic transactivator RTA: a novel mechanism for establishment of latency.
Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) is the etiological agent contributing to development of Kaposi's sarcoma, primary effusion lymphoma, and multicentric Castleman desease. Following primary infection, latency ...
An autonomous replicating element within the KSHV genome
Propagation of episomally maintained KSHV genome into new daughter cells requires replication of its genome once every cell division. This study demonstrates a potential alternative mechanism of KSHV latent DNA replication ...
The ATM/ATR signaling effector Chk2 is targeted by Epstein-Barr virus nuclear antigen 3C to release the G2/M cell cycle block
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infects most of the human population and persists in B lymphocytes for the lifetime of the host. The establishment of latent infection by EBV requires the expression of a unique repertoire of genes. ...
Structure and function of latency-associated nuclear antigen
Latency-associated nuclear antigen (LANA) encoded by open reading frame 73 (ORF73) is the major latent protein expressed in all forms of KSHV-associated malignancies. LANA is a large (222–234 kDa) nuclear protein that ...
