The sequenced gammaherpesviruses each contain a single viral bcl-2 homolog (v-bcl-2) which may encode a protein that functions in preventing the apoptotic death of virus-infected cells. Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), a gammaherpesvirus associated with several lymphoid and epithelial malignancies, encodes the v-Bcl-2 homolog BHRF1. In this report the previously(More)
Following ligand stimulation, several Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are phosphorylated at tyrosine residues in their intracellular domains. However, the precise chain of events leading to tyrosine-phosphorylation-dependent TLR-mediated cytokine secretion has not been defined. We focused on elaborating the signaling pathway of tyrosine-phosphorylated TLR2. We(More)
