Epstein-Barr virus deubiquitinase downregulates TRAF6-mediated NF-κB signaling during productive replication.

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), a human oncogenic herpesvirus that establishes a lifelong latent infection in the host, occasionally enters lytic infection to produce progeny viruses. The EBV oncogene latent membrane protein 1 (LMP1), which is expressed in both latent and lytic infection, constitutively activates the canonical NF-κB (p65) pathway. Such LMP1… CONTINUE READING
