The TATA-box-binding protein (TBP) plays a key role in initiating eukaryotic transcription and is used by many viruses for viral transcription. We previously reported increased TBP levels during infection with the baculovirus Autographa californica multicapsid nuclear polyhedrovirus (AcMNPV). The TBP antiserum used in that study, however, cross-reacted with a baculoviral protein. Here, we reported that increased amounts of nuclear TBP were detected upon infection of Spodoptera frugiperda and TN… Expand
Sequential deletion of AcMNPV homologous regions leads to reductions in budded virus production and late protein expression.
It is concluded that multiple hrs ensure an effective virus infection cycle with production of high titers of budded virus and polyhedra. Expand
TATA-binding Protein (TBP) Involved in the Ecdysone Signal Pathway of Drosophila
Results indicate that the TBP gene involved in the 20E signaling transduction pathway, and it acts downstream EcR and its heterodimer USP, and the silence of EcR-A and USP1 led to a reduced transcript level of TBP in S2 cells. Expand
Expression of the core promoter factors TATA box binding protein and TATA box binding protein‐related factor 2 in Drosophila germ cells and their distinct functions in germline development
In Drosophila, the expression of germline genes is initiated in primordial germ cells (PGCs) and is known to be associated with germline establishment. However, the transcriptional regulation ofExpand
Characteristics of biological processes influenced by gut bacteria
The experimental data showed that despite strain-specifi c enterocyte’s gene expression alternation the bacteria show convergence in modulation of specifi c biological pathways, which might facilitate strain characterisation and development of targeted probiotic therapeutics. Expand
Characterization of the interactions of baculovirus transcription and replication regulators by bimolecular fluorescence complementation
This book presents a meta-narrative of the natural history of Yellowstone National Park from 1989 to 2002, culminating in the publication of the Bouchut-Boyar-Boyaval manuscript in 2002. Expand


Baculovirus Infection Raises the Level of TATA-Binding Protein That Colocalizes with Viral DNA Replication Sites
A putative role of TBP during late viral transcription, which may occur in close proximity to viral DNA replication, is suggested. Expand
TATA-binding protein and TBP-associated factors during herpes simplex virus type 1 infection: localization at viral DNA replication sites.
The results show that HSV-1 infection has no influence on the protein levels of TFIID components and leads to a redistribution of TBP and hsTAFs to prereplicative sites that enlarge to viral DNA replication compartments. Expand
Transcriptional Regulation of the TATA-Binding Protein by Ras Cellular Signaling
Analysis of the DNA sequence requirement within the TBP promoter defined three distinct regions that modulate the abilities of Raf, RalGDS, and the Ras-dependent, MEK-independent pathways to regulate human T BP promoter activity. Expand

The baculovirus Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus (AcMNPV, which is representative of the MNPV subtype in which the virions may contain many nucleocapsids within a single viralExpand
Expression of PE38 and IE2, viral members of the C3HC4 finger family, during baculovirus infection: PE38 and IE2 localize to distinct nuclear regions
Investigation of the expressions of the pe38 gene of Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus reveals that PE38 and IE2 localize to distinct regions within the nucleus mainly detected after transfection of pe38- and ie2-expressing constructs. Expand
Role of the ubiquitin-proteasome system in Bombyx mori nucleopolyhedrovirus infection.
This study found that the specific proteasome inhibitor MG-132 markedly reduced budded virus (BV) production and polyhedrin expression in Bombyx mori NPV (BmNPV)-infected BmN-4 cells, suggesting that proteosomal degradation of viral and/or host proteins is required at an early stage of infection for efficient polyhedrine expression.

Regulation of host RNA levels during baculovirus infection.
During infection of the permissive host insect cell line Spodoptera frugiperda IPLB-SF-21 by the baculovirus Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus (AcMNPV), the levels of host actin,Expand
Nuclear IE2 Structures Are Related to Viral DNA Replication Sites during Baculovirus Infection
Similar to what was found for mammalian cells, small ubiquitin-like modifiers were recruited to PML domains in infected insect cells, which suggests that IE2 and PML colocalize in conserved cellular domains. Expand
Dynamic nuclear localization of the baculovirus proteins IE2 and PE38 during the infection cycle: the promyelocytic leukemia protein colocalizes with IE2.
Results provide first evidence that the early baculovirus protein IE2 associates at least with one component of mammalian PODs during virus infection, suggesting that POD-like structures can be formed in insect cells. Expand
Transcriptional regulation of the human TATA binding protein gene.
The data suggest that this 44-kb genomic region possesses genetic regulatory elements that not only drive ubiquitous expression of TBP but also negate chromatin and DNA methylation induced silencing, which is normally associated with transgenes stably integrated into tissue culture cells. Expand
