Induction of G protein-coupled peptide receptor EBI 1 by human herpesvirus 6 and 7 infection in CD4+ T cells.

EBI 1, a putative lymphocyte-specific G protein-coupled peptide receptor, was induced by human herpesvirus 6 or 7 infection in CD4+ T cells, and its expression increased early after infection and reached a plateau at 48 h. The induction of the EBI 1 gene by human herpesvirus 6 or 7 infection was not mediated by soluble factors but by the virus itself… (More)
