The bovine papillomavirus (BPV) causes papillomas that regress spontaneously, but can also progress to malignancy. This study evaluated the role of BPV in oncogenesis. Twenty-four samples from uninfected calves and the papillomas of BPV infected cattle were subjected to molecular diagnosis, as well as histopathological and immunohistochemical analyses. The(More)
Bovine papillomatosis is an infectious disease that is caused by bovine papillomavirus (BPV), which results in important economic losses. However, no BPV vaccines or effective treatment methods are commercially available to date. Moreover, the absence of papillomavirus replication in vitro makes the use of recombinant protein a promising candidate for(More)
In the last decades, a group of viruses has received great attention due to its relationship with cancer development and its wide distribution throughout the vertebrates: the papillomaviruses. In this article, we aim to review some of the most relevant reports concerning the use of bovines as an experimental model for studies related to papillomaviruses.(More)
Bovine papillomavirus (BPV) is considered a useful model to study HPV oncogenic process. BPV interacts with the host chromatin, resulting in DNA damage, which is attributed to E5, E6, and E7 viral oncoproteins activity. However, the oncogenic mechanisms of BPV E6 oncoprotein per se remain unknown. This study aimed to evaluate the mutagenic potential of Bos(More)
Potato tubers (Solanum tuberosum L. cv. Monalisa) showing superficial necrotic rings typical of Potato virus Y NTN (PVYNTN) infection were collected from commercial potato fields in the State of São Paulo (Brazil). An isolate named IAC-PVYNTN was characterized by sequencing 822 and 836 nucleotides from the coat protein and P1 protein coding genes,(More)
Bovine papillomavirus (BPV) is the etiological agent of bovine papillomatosis (BP), infectious disease, characterized by the presence of multiples papillomas that can regress spontaneously or progress to malignances. Although recognized as mutagen, BPV action following cancer initiation remains few explored, since studies about cancer progression and(More)
Cancer is a group of highly complex and heterogeneous diseases with several causes. According to the stochastic model, cancer initiates from mutation in somatic cells, leading to genomic instability and cell transformation. This canonical pathway of carcinogenesis is related to the discovery of important mechanisms that regulate cancer initiation. However,(More)
