The protein p53 is highly expressed in a large variety of transformed cell types originating from diverse species. These include cells transformed by Simian virus 40 (SV40), adenovirus and Abelson virus, as well as a variety of chemically transformed cells. Substantial amounts of p53 are also present in certain non-transformed cells, for example, some(More)
The p53 gene codes for a nuclear protein that has an important role in normal cellular replication. The concentration of p53 protein is frequently elevated in transformed cells. Transfection studies show that the p53 gene, in collaboration with the activated ras oncogene, can transform cells. Chromosomal localization may provide a better understanding of(More)
L12 are Ab-MuLV-transformed cells that express the abl p120 oncogene product but lack the cellularly encoded p53. The functional p53 gene in these cells has been inactivated by the insertion of Moloney virus-like sequences into the first p53 intron. Transfection of L12 cells with a functional p53 gene, contained in a 16 kb Eco RI genomic cloned fragment(More)
Cells in our body can induce hundreds of antiviral genes following virus sensing, many of which remain largely uncharacterized. CEACAM1 has been previously shown to be induced by various innate systems; however, the reason for such tight integration to innate sensing systems was not apparent. Here, we show that CEACAM1 is induced following detection of HCMV(More)
Herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV1) is a ubiquitous human pathogen that utilizes variable mechanisms to evade immune surveillance. The glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchoring pathway is a multistep process in which a myriad of different proteins are covalently attached to a GPI moiety to be presented on the cell surface. Among the different GPI-anchored(More)
