Characterization of a major histocompatibility complex class II X-box-binding protein enhancing tat-induced transcription directed by the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 long terminal repeat.

Abstract

The X-box element present within the promoter region of genes belonging to the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) plays a pivotal role in the expression of class II molecules, since it contains the binding sites for several well-characterized transcription factors. We have analyzed a randomly selected compilation of viral genomes for the presence of… (More)
