Clinical outcome in ovarian carcinoma is predicted by progesterone receptor status, indicating an endocrine aspect to this disease. Peripheral leucocyte genomic DNAs were obtained from 41 patients with primary ovarian carcinoma and 83 controls from Ireland, as well as from 26 primary ovarian carcinoma patients and 101 controls in Germany.

GB virus type C (GBV-C) is an apparently nonpathogenic virus that replicates in T and B lymphocytes and is a common cause of persistent human infection. Among HIV-1-infected individuals, persistent coinfection with GBV-C is associated with prolonged survival, and infection of blood mononuclear cells or CD4+ T cells with GBV-C and HIV in vitro results in(More)
Viral infections alter host cell homeostasis and this may lead to immune evasion and/or interfere with the replication of other microbes in coinfected hosts. Two flaviviruses are associated with a reduction in HIV replication or improved survival in HIV-infected people (dengue virus (DV) and GB virus type C (GBV-C)). GBV-C infection and expression of the(More)
Broadly neutralizing Abs to HIV-1 are well described; however, identification of Ags that elicit these Abs has proven difficult. Persistent infection with GB virus type C (GBV-C) is associated with prolonged survival in HIV-1-infected individuals, and among those without HIV-1 viremia, the presence of Ab to GBV-C glycoprotein E2 is also associated with(More)
Hepatitis A virus (HAV) contains a single-stranded, plus-sense RNA genome with a single long open reading frame encoding a polyprotein of approximately 250 kDa. Viral structural proteins are generated by posttranslational proteolytic processing of this polyprotein. We constructed recombinant vaccinia viruses which expressed the HAV polyprotein (rV-ORF) and(More)
Hepatitis G virus (HGV or GB-C virus) is a newly described virus that is closely related to hepatitis C virus (HCV). Based on sequence analysis and by evaluation of translational initiation codon preferences utilized during in vitro translation, HGV appears to have a truncated or absent core protein at the amino terminus of the HGV polyprotein.(More)
BACKGROUND GBV-C infection is associated with prolonged survival in HIV-infected people and GBV-C inhibits HIV replication in co-infection models. Expression of the GBV-C nonstructural phosphoprotein 5A (NS5A) decreases surface levels of the HIV co-receptor CXCR4, induces the release of SDF-1 and inhibits HIV replication in Jurkat CD4+ T cell lines.

GB virus type C (GBV-C) is a human flavivirus that may cause persistent infection, although most infected individuals clear viremia and develop antibodies to the envelope glycoprotein E2. To study GBV-C E2 antigenicity and cell binding, murine anti-E2 monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) were evaluated to topologically map immunogenic sites on GBV-C E2 and for the(More)
GB virus type C (GBV-C) is a common human flavivirus that has been associated with prolonged survival in HIV-positive individuals in several, though not all, epidemiological studies. There are five distinct GBV-C genotypes that are geographically localized, and it has been speculated that GBV-C genotypic differences may explain variable outcomes observed in(More)
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) load is suppressed during dengue virus infection. The NS5A phosphoprotein of GB virus C (a related flavivirus) inhibits HIV replication in vitro. To determine whether the dengue virus NS5 protein inhibits HIV replication, CD4(+) T cell lines expressing this protein were generated. HIV replication in dengue virus(More)
