The E6 oncoprotein encoded by human papillomavirus types 16 and 18 promotes the degradation of p53
The E6 protein encoded by the oncogenic human papillomavirus types 16 and 18 is one of two viral products expressed in HPV-associated cancers. E6 is an oncoprotein which cooperates with E7 toExpand

The HPV-16 E6 and E6-AP complex functions as a ubiquitin-protein ligase in the ubiquitination of p53
The ubiquitin-dependent proteolytic pathway plays a major role in selective protein degradation. Ubiquitination of proteins requires the sequential action of the ubiquitin-activating enzyme (E1),Expand

Virus infection induces the assembly of coordinately activated transcription factors on the IFN-beta enhancer in vivo.
We have identified a virus-activated factor (VAF) that binds to a regulatory element shared by different virus-inducible genes. We provide evidence that VAF contains two members of the interferonExpand

Structure of an E6AP-UbcH7 complex: insights into ubiquitination by the E2-E3 enzyme cascade.
The E6AP ubiquitin-protein ligase (E3) mediates the human papillomavirus-induced degradation of the p53 tumor suppressor in cervical cancer and is mutated in Angelman syndrome, a neurologicalExpand

A cellular protein mediates association of p53 with the E6 oncoprotein of human papillomavirus types 16 or 18.
The E6 protein of human papillomavirus types 16 and 18 (HPV‐16 and HPV‐18) can stably associate with the p53 protein in vitro. In the presence of rabbit reticulocyte lysate, this association leads toExpand

Interaction of the Bovine Papillomavirus E2 Protein with Brd4 Tethers the Viral DNA to Host Mitotic Chromosomes
The papillomavirus E2 protein tethers viral genomes to host mitotic chromosomes to ensure genome maintenance. We have identified the bromodomain protein Brd4 as a major cellular interacting partnerExpand

The Brd4 Extraterminal Domain Confers Transcription Activation Independent of pTEFb by Recruiting Multiple Proteins, Including NSD3
ABSTRACT Bromodomain protein 4 (Brd4) plays critical roles in development, cancer progression, and virus-host pathogenesis. To gain mechanistic insight into the various biological functions of Brd4,Expand

Human papillomavirus immortalization and transformation functions.
The high risk HPVs (such as HPV-16 and HPV-18) that are associated with specific anogenital cancers encode two oncoproteins E6 and E7, which are expressed in the HPV positive cancers. The E7 proteinExpand

A family of proteins structurally and functionally related to the E6-AP ubiquitin-protein ligase.
E6-AP is a 100-kDa cellular protein that interacts with the E6 protein of the cancer-associated human papillomavirus types 16 and 18. The E6/E6-AP complex binds to and targets the p53Expand

Association of human papillomavirus types 16 and 18 E6 proteins with p53.
Human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV-16) is a DNA tumor virus that is associated with human anogenital cancers and encodes two transforming proteins, E6 and E7. The E7 protein has been shown to bind toExpand
