The JC virus (JCV) regulatory proteins, large T antigen, small t antigen, T'135, T'136, and T'165, are encoded by five transcripts alternatively spliced from the viral early precursor mRNA. T antigen and the T' proteins share N-terminal amino acid sequences that include the L x CxE and J domains, motifs in SV40 T antigen known to mediate binding to the(More)
The JC virus early mRNA is alternatively spliced to yield five transcripts that encode large T antigen, small t antigen, T'(135), T'(136), and T'(165). The splicing process is regulated differentially in transformed versus lytically infected cells and temporally during the course of a productive infection. The authors have identified a potential exonic(More)
