Functional analyses of the EBNA1 origin DNA binding protein of Epstein-Barr virus.

The EBNA1 protein of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) governs the replication and segregation of the viral episomes in latently infected cells and transactivates the expression of other EBV latency proteins through direct interactions with DNA sequences in the EBV latent origin of replication, oriP. To better understand how EBNA1 controls these processes, we have… CONTINUE READING
