Considering the involvement of a redox-regulatory pathway in the expression of human papillomaviruses (HPVs), HPV type 16 (HPV-16)-immortalized human keratinocytes were treated with the antioxidant pyrrolidine-dithiocarbamate (PDTC). PDTC induces elevated binding of the transcription factor AP-1 to its cognate recognition site within the viral regulatory(More)
Malignant human papillomavirus type 18 (HPV18)-positive cervical carcinoma cells can be reverted to a nonmalignant phenotype by generation of somatic cell hybrids with normal human fibroblasts. Although nontumorigenic hybrids, their tumorigenic segregants, and the parental HeLa cells have similar in vitro properties, inoculation only of nontumorigenic cells(More)
AP-1 represents a transcription factor, which plays a pivotal role in initiating and maintaining the expression of human papillomavirus (HPV) oncoproteins E6 and E7 during HPV-linked carcinogenesis of the uterine cervix. AP-1 stands as a synonym for different proteins such as c-Jun, JunB, JunD, c-Fos, FosB as well as the Fos-related antigens Fra-1 and(More)

The glycolytic pathway inhibitor 2-deoxyglucose (2-DG) is capable of suppressing the transcription of the human pathogenic papillomavirus type 18 (HPV 18) in cervical carcinoma cells and derived non-tumorigenic somatic cell hybrids at the level of transcription initiation. HPV down-regulation is selective, since other reference genes are not affected or(More)
The division “Tumorvirus-Immunology” is currently interested in following topics: Cellular control mechanisms of persisting HPV infections; regulation of the cytokine/chemokine signal transduction pathways during HPV-induced carcinogenesis; (group of PD Dr. Frank Rösl). Generation of papillomavirus-specific protein components for vaccination (group of Dr.(More)
