To determine the molecular mechanism(s) of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)-induced intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) upregulation in respiratory epithelial cells (REC; A549 cell cultures), we investigated the roles of the transcription factors NF-kappaB and C/EBP. Increases in ICAM-1 message required de novo mRNA synthesis. ICAM-1 promoter(More)
