Human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8) is a newly discovered virus closely associated with Kaposi's sarcoma and primary effusion lymphomas. When they occur in patients with AIDS, these B-cell lymphomas frequently harbor another human herpesvirus, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). To determine the molecular mechanisms of the regulation of early gene expression by the immediate-early gene products of HHV-8 and to assess possible molecular interactions between HHV-8 and EBV, we studied the regulation of the HHV-8… CONTINUE READING
