Human T-cell lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1) transcriptional activation is mediated by the viral transactivator, Tax, and three 21-bp repeats (Tax response element [TxRE]) located in the U3 region of the viral long terminal repeat (LTR). Each TxRE contains a core cyclic AMP response element (CRE) flanked by 5' G-rich and 3' C-rich sequences. The TxRE(More)
The human T-cell lymphotropic virus, type (HTLV)-1 trans-activator, Tax, coordinates with cAMP-responsive element-binding protein (CREB) and the transcriptional co-activators p300/CBP on three 21-base pair repeat elements in the proviral long terminal repeat (LTR) to promote viral mRNA transcription. Recruitment of p300/CBP to the activator-enhancer(More)
The dysregulation of cellular apoptosis pathways has emerged as a critical early event associated with the development of many types of human cancers. Numerous viral and cellular oncogenes, aside from their inherent transforming properties, are known to induce programmed cell death, consistent with the hypothesis that genetic defects are required to support(More)
Partial proteolysis of HTLV-1 Tax protein has revealed the region surrounding amino acid residues (88)KVL(90) to be highly exposed. The protein sequence surrounding this region ((81)QRTSKTLKVLTPPIT(95)) bears resemblance to the kinase-inducible domain (KID, (129)SRRPSYRKILNE(140)) of CREB and is involved in recruiting transcriptional coactivators, p300 and(More)
The human T cell lymphotropic retrovirus type I (HTLV-I) trans-activator, Tax, interacts specifically with the basic-domain/leucine-zipper (bZip) protein, cAMP response element binding protein (CREB), bound to the viral Tax-responsive element consisting of three imperfect 21-base pair repeats, each with a cAMP response element core flanked by G/C-rich(More)
The economics of long-run growth probably has been one of the most lively areas of economic research. Although interest in the analysis of long-run growth has never been lost, its revival may be observed since the mid-1980s. The following advancements in both theoretical and empirical research have contributed to a better understanding of the complex growth(More)
