Interleukin 6 enhances a cellular activity that functionally substitutes for E1A protein in transactivation.


An interleukin 6 (IL-6)-regulated cellular activity in HepG2 cells is found to functionally substitute for the transcriptional transactivator product of the adenovirus transforming gene E1A in transactivating E1A-dependent and E1A-responsive viral early genes. Mutant viruses deficient in E1A expression replicate in HepG2 cells. Induction with IL-6 leads to… (More)
