Activation of CD21 and CD23 gene expression by Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus RTA.

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) EBNA2 and Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) replication and transcription activator (RTA) are recruited to their responsive elements through interaction with a Notch-mediated transcription factor, RBP-Jkappa. In particular, RTA and EBNA2 interactions with RBP-Jkappa are essential for the lytic replication of KSHV and… CONTINUE READING
