BK virus (BKV) is a human papovavirus which latently infects a majority of the world population. Reactivation of this virus is associated with acute hemorrhagic cystitis, and BKV DNA has been found in human tumor tissue. BKV is one of many highly homologous papovaviruses, including simian virus 40 and JC virus, which display distinct host and cell-type specificities, transformation potentials, and pathologies. These differences are thought to be determined, in part, by the noncoding regulatory… CONTINUE READING
