Disruption of host antiviral resistances by gammaherpesvirus tegument proteins with homology to the FGARAT purine biosynthesis enzyme.


All known gammaherpesviruses encode at least one conserved tegument protein that contains sequence homology to the cellular purine biosynthesis enzyme: phosphoribosylformylglycineamide amidotransferase (FGARAT, or PFAS). While no enzymatic activity have been found on these viral FGARAT-homology proteins (vFGARAT), they are important for disarming host… (More)
