During adeno-associated virus and adenovirus (AAV/Ad) coinfection, accumulation of viral genomes and proteins can alter cellular stress responses. To determine how AAV/Ad coinfection affects the host we screened over 60 cellular proteins for their responses. AAV/Ad coinfections induce a robust DNA damage response (DDR) that is distinct from that induced by(More)
Adeno-associated virus (AAV) and the other parvoviruses have long been known to inhibit proliferation of nonpermissive cells. The mechanism of this inhibition is not thoroughly understood. To learn how AAV interacts with host cells, we have begun an investigation into AAV's relationship with adenovirus (Ad), AAV's most efficient helper virus. AAV, but not(More)
The human adeno-associated virus (AAV) has generated much enthusiasm as a transfer vector for human gene therapy. Although clinical gene therapy trials have been initiated using AAV vectors, much remains to be learned regarding the basic mechanisms of virus replication, gene expression, and virion assembly. AAV encodes four nonstructural, or replication(More)
Bulky cisplatin lesions are repaired primarily by nucleotide excision repair (NER), in which the structure specific endonuclease XPF-ERCC1 is a critical component. It is now known that the XPF-ERCC1 complex has repair functions beyond NER and plays a role in homologous recombination (HR). It has been suggested that expression of ERCC1 correlates with(More)
The replication (Rep) proteins of adeno-associated virus (AAV) play prominent roles in regulation of viral DNA replication, RNA transcription, assembly of an infectious virion and establishment of the provirus. We have previously demonstrated that all four Rep proteins are phosphorylated on serine residues [Virology 23 (1997) 332-336]. Reversible(More)
Adeno-associated virus (AAV) is a human parvovirus that normally requires a helper virus such as adenovirus (Ad) for replication. The four AAV replication proteins (Rep78, Rep68, Rep52, and Rep40) are pleiotropic effectors of virus integration, replication, transcription, and virion assembly. These proteins exert effects on Ad gene expression and(More)
ERCC1-XPF heterodimer is a 5'-3' structure-specific endonuclease which is essential in multiple DNA repair pathways in mammalian cells. ERCC1-XPF (ERCC1-ERCC4) repairs cisplatin-DNA intrastrand adducts and interstrand crosslinks and its specific inhibition has been shown to enhance cisplatin cytotoxicity in cancer cells. In this study, we describe a high(More)
The 36-kDa beta 1, 35-kDa beta 2, and 6.5-kDa gamma 2 subunits of the heterotrimeric guanine nucleotide-binding proteins have been overexpressed in Sf9 cells using a baculovirus expression system. The gamma 2 subunit expressed in Sf9 cells incorporated label derived from [3H]mevalonate and is therefore likely to be isoprenylated, as is its mammalian(More)
