The human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV-16) E7 and adenovirus (Ad) E1A oncoproteins share a common pathway of transformation. They disrupt the cell cycle G1 phase-specific protein complex containing the E2F transcription factor and the regulatory protein Rb1, the retinoblastoma tumour suppressor gene product. In the G1 and S phases of the cell cycle, E7 and(More)
The canarypox (CP) and fowlpox (FP) viruses, which are unable to replicate productively in non-avian species, have been utilized as live vectors carrying the HIV-1SF2 env gene with the putative immunosuppressive (IS) region complete (CPIS+ and FPIS+) or deleted (CPIS- and FPIS-). To determine if these avipox-env recombinants could be utilized to elicit a(More)
The conserved region 3 (CR3) of the E7 protein of human papillomaviruses contains two CXXC motifs involved in zinc binding and in the homodimerization of the molecule. Studies have suggested that the intact CXXC motifs in the CR3 of HPV16 and HPV18 E7 are required for the in vitro transforming activity of these proteins. CR3 also contains a low affinity pRb(More)
