A comprehensive mapping of interactions among Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) proteins and interactions of EBV proteins with human proteins should provide specific hypotheses and a broad perspective on EBV strategies for replication and persistence. Interactions of EBV proteins with each other and with human proteins were assessed by using a stringent(More)
Notch1 regulates gene expression by associating with the DNA-binding factor RBPJ and is oncogenic in murine and human T-cell progenitors. Using ChIP-Seq, we find that in human and murine T-lymphoblastic leukemia (TLL) genomes Notch1 binds preferentially to promoters, to RBPJ binding sites, and near imputed ZNF143, ETS, and RUNX sites. ChIP-Seq confirmed(More)
Epstein-Barr virus nuclear antigen 2 (EBNA-2) plays an essential role in primary B-lymphocyte growth transformation. EBNA-2 is an acidic transcriptional transactivator that is brought to virus and cell EBNA-2 response elements by interaction with a factor that recognizes the double-stranded sequence MNYYGTGGGAA, where M is A or C, N is any nucleotide, and Y(More)
Although genetic and biochemical data indicate that the cell protein RBPJkappa is a mediator of EBNA-2 and EBNA-3C effects on transcriptional regulatory elements, the extent of association of these Epstein-Barr virus nuclear proteins with RBPJkappa in transformed B lymphocytes has not been determined. We now report that most of the EBNA-2 and at least 20%(More)
Pyogenic liver abscess is a classic clinical entity whose presentation and management have evolved significantly with the advent of potent antimicrobials and the availability of improved diagnostic imaging. The classic triad of fever, upper right quadrant pain or fullness, and jaundice resulting from advanced pylephlebitis is now seldom seen. Despite these(More)
Expression of the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) latent membrane protein 1 (LMP-1) oncogene is regulated by the EBV nuclear protein 2 (EBNA-2) transactivator. EBNA-2 is known to interact with the cellular DNA-binding protein J kappa and is recruited to promoters containing the GTGGGAA J kappa recognition sequence. The minimal EBNA-2-responsive LMP-1 promoter(More)
The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) nuclear protein 3C (EBNA 3C) is essential for EBV-mediated transformation of primary B lymphocytes, is turned on by EBNA 2, and regulates transcription of some of the viral and cellular genes which are regulated by EBNA 2. EBNA 2 is targeted to response elements by binding to the DNA sequence-specific, transcriptional repressor(More)
Mature Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) was purified from the culture medium of infected lymphocytes made functionally conditional for Zta activation of lytic replication by an in-frame fusion with a mutant estrogen receptor. Proteins in purified virus preparations were separated by gradient gel electrophoresis and trypsin-digested; peptides were then analyzed by(More)
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) nuclear protein 2 (EBNA 2) is an acidic transcriptional transactivator of virus and cell gene expression and is essential for growth transformation of primary B lymphocytes. EBNA 2 transactivation of response elements (E2REs) can be mediated by interaction with a GTGGGAA-specific DNA-binding factor(s). We now purify the factor by(More)
Epstein-Barr virus nuclear antigen 2 (EBNA2) regulation of transcription through the cell transcription factor RBPJ is essential for resting B-lymphocyte (RBL) conversion to immortal lymphoblast cell lines (LCLs). ChIP-seq of EBNA2 and RBPJ sites in LCL DNA found EBNA2 at 5,151 and RBPJ at 10,529 sites. EBNA2 sites were enriched for RBPJ (78%), early B-cell(More)
