Epstein-Barr virus nuclear antigen 2 (EBNA 2) activates transcription of specific genes and is essential for B-lymphocyte transformation. EBNA 2 has an acidic activation domain which interacts with general transcription factors TFIIB, TFIIH, and TAF40. We now show that EBNA 2 is specifically bound to a novel nuclear protein, p100, and that p100 can(More)
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) adsorption to human B lymphocytes is mediated by the viral envelope glycoprotein, gp350/220, which binds to the cell surface protein, CD21, also known as the CR2 complement receptor. Human epithelial cells also express an EBV receptor. A candidate surface molecule of 195 kD has previously been identified on an epithelial cell line(More)
Revealing the key molecules regulating the stress-response pathways in human cells is an intriguing problem. Chaperones, such as glucose-regulated protein 78 (GRP78) and heat shock protein 27 (HSP27), are important molecules for protecting the viability of human cells; however, it remains to be further clarified whether the molecules differentially modulate(More)
