Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) is implicated causally in the development of several human malignancies, including primary effusion lymphoma (PEL). PEL cells serve as tools for KSHV research, as most of them are latently infected and allow lytic virus replication in response to various stimuli. 12-O-Tetradecanoyl-phorbol-13-acetate (TPA) is(More)
MOTIVATION Viruses employ various means to evade immune detection. One common evasion strategy is the removal of CD8+cytotoxic T-lymphocyte epitopes. We here use a combination of multiple bioinformatic tools and large amount of genomic data to compute the epitope repertoire presented by over 1300 viruses in many HLA alleles. We define the 'Size of Immune(More)
The human glioma tumor suppressor candidate region 2 gene product, GLTSCR2, also called 'protein interacting with carboxyl terminus 1' (PICT-1), has been implicated in the regulation of two major tumor suppressor proteins, PTEN and p53, and reported to bind the membrane-cytoskeleton regulator of cell signaling, Merlin. PICT-1 is a nucleolar protein,(More)
