The nonstructural protein NS1 of autonomous parvoviruses is essential for viral DNA amplification and gene expression and is also the major cytopathic effector of these viruses. NS1 acts as nickase, helicase, and ATPase and upregulates P38-driven transcription of the capsid genes. We report here the identification of a novel cellular protein that interacts(More)
In declining forests of the Vosges mountains (northeast of France), we previously observed that the yellowing of spruce (Picea abies L. cv. Karsten) needles was associated with impairment of the free radical scavenging capacity of the cells and coincided with chronic exposure to ozone. Chloroplasts of yellow needles were characterized by an abnormal(More)
The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a B lymphotropic virus that infects the majority of the human population. All EBV strains transform B lymphocytes, but some strains, such as M81, also induce spontaneous virus replication. EBV encodes 22 microRNAs (miRNAs) that form a cluster within the BART region of the virus and have been previously been found to stimulate(More)
UNLABELLED Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is an oncogenic human herpesvirus involved in the pathogenesis of Burkitt's lymphoma (BL) and various other lymphoproliferative disorders. In BL, EBV protein expression is restricted to EBV nuclear antigen 1 (EBNA1), but small noncoding RNAs such as EBV-encoded small RNAs (EBERs) and microRNAs (miRNAs) can also be(More)
Autonomous parvoviruses are characterized by their stringent dependency on host cell S phase and their cytopathic effects on neoplastic cells. To better understand the interactions between the virus and its host cell, we used oligonucleotide arrays that carry more than 19,000 unique human gene sequences to profile the gene expression of the human(More)
The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infects and transforms B-lymphocytes with high efficiency. This process requires expression of the viral latent proteins and of the 3 miR-BHRF1 microRNAs. Here we show that B-cells infected by a virus that lacks these non-coding RNAs (Δ123) grew more slowly between day 5 and day 20, relative to wild type controls. This effect(More)
The DUP240 gene family of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is composed of 10 members. They encode proteins of about 240 amino acids which contain two predicted transmembrane domains. Database searches identified only one homologue in the closely related species Saccharomyces bayanus, indicating that the DUP240 genes encode proteins specific to Saccharomyces sensu(More)
The Epstein-Barr virus is etiologically linked with the development of benign and malignant diseases, characterized by their diversity and a heterogeneous geographic distribution across the world. The virus possesses a 170-kb-large genome that encodes for multiple proteins and non-coding RNAs. Early on there have been numerous attempts to link particular(More)
The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is etiologically associated with the development of multiple types of tumors, but it is unclear whether this diversity is due to infection with different EBV strains. We report a comparative characterization of SNU719, GP202, and YCCEL1, three EBV strains that were isolated from gastric carcinomas, M81, a virus isolated in a(More)
The complete sequence of a 36775 bp DNA segment located on the right arm of chromosome XV of Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been determined and analysed. The sequence encodes 26 open reading frames of at least 100 amino acids. Eight of these correspond to known genes, whereas 18 correspond to new genes.
