We found that Human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection of human fibroblasts resulted in a dramatic increase in p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) phosphorylation. Recently, drug mediated inhibition of p38 has been demonstrated to exhibit anti-viral activity against HIV (Shapiro, L., Heidenreich, K.A., Meintzer, M.D. and Dinarello, C.A., 1998. Role of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase in HIV type 1 production in vitro. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA. 95, 7422-7426). Therefore, we examined… CONTINUE READING
