Infection with genital human papillomaviruses (HPVs) is the primary cause of cervical cancer. The infection is widespread, and little is known about the secondary factors associated with progression from subclinical infection to invasive carcinoma. Here we report that HPV genomes are efficiently targeted in vivo by CpG methylation, a well-known mechanism of(More)
Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) infect epithelia, including the simple and the squamous epithelia of the cervix, where they can cause cancer and precursor lesions. The molecular events leading from asymptomatic HPV infections to neoplasia are poorly understood. There is evidence that progression is modulated by transcriptional mechanisms that control HPV gene(More)
