The human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) variant A U100 gene encodes the third component of the glycoprotein H (gH)-glycoprotein L (gL)-containing complex. Glycosidase digestion analysis showed that the U100 gene products are glycoproteins consisting of an 80-kDa protein with complex N-linked oligosaccharides and a 74-kDa protein with immature, high-mannose N-linked(More)
Human CD46 is a cellular receptor for human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6). Virus entry into host cells requires a glycoprotein H (gH)-glycoprotein L (gL) complex. We show that the CD46 ectodomain blocked HHV-6 infection and bound a complex of gH-gL and the 80-kDa U100 gene product, designated glycoprotein Q, indicating that the complex is a viral ligand for CD46.
Chromosomal translocations (CTs) between immunoglobulin (Ig) genes and the BCL6 proto-oncogene are frequently associated with diffuse large B-cell lymphomas (DLBCLs) and follicular lymphomas (FLs) and are implicated in the development of these lymphomas. However, whether Ig/BCL6 translocation per se is sufficient to drive malignant transformation is not(More)
