During the adenovirus infectious cycle, the early proteins E4orf6 and E1B55K are known to perform several functions. These include nuclear export of late viral mRNAs, a block of nuclear export of the bulk of cellular mRNAs, and the ubiquitin-mediated degradation of selected proteins, including p53 and Mre11. Degradation of these proteins occurs via a(More)
We have investigated the requirements for CRM1-mediated nuclear export and SUMO1 conjugation of the adenovirus E1B-55K protein during productive infection. Our data show that CRM1 is the major export receptor for E1B-55K in infected cells. Functional inactivation of the E1B-55K CRM1-dependent nuclear export signal (NES) or leptomycin B treatment causes an(More)
The adenovirus type 5 (Ad5) early region 1B 55-kDa (E1B-55K) protein is a multifunctional regulator of cell-cycle-independent virus replication that participates in many processes required for maximal virus production. As part of a study of E1B-55K function, we generated the Ad5 mutant H5pm4133, carrying stop codons after the second and seventh codons of(More)
The adenovirus type 5 (Ad5) E1B-55K and E4orf6 (E1B-55K/E4orf6) proteins are multifunctional regulators of Ad5 replication, participating in many processes required for virus growth. A complex containing the two proteins mediates the degradation of cellular proteins through assembly of an E3 ubiquitin ligase and induces shutoff of host cell protein(More)
