The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) BZLF1 gene product, Zta is able to trigger the viral lytic cycle in latently infected B lymphocytes. Investigations into regulation of the promoter, Zp for the BZLF1 gene in B cells have identified 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate, anti-immunoglobulin and Zta responsive elements as well as a negative regulatory element(More)

Bis-cyclic butenolides, 5-arylated 2(5H)-furanones 6a - c, 7a, b and the 3(2H)-pyridazones 9a - d were prepared by using the aldehyde form of muco halogen acids in electrophilic substitution reactions and in an aldol-like condensation reaction. The cytotoxicity of these simple and bis-cyclic butenolides have been evaluated in tissue culture studies on MAC(More)
