Polyomavirus large T-antigen binds the "pRb related' protein p130 through sequences in conserved region 2.

The transforming potential of DNA tumor viruses derives mainly from the ability of their encoded oncogene products to interact with cellular proteins. Many of these viral oncoproteins share regions of sequence similarity, designated conserved region 1 and 2, which have been implicated in complex formation with pRb, the product of the retinoblastoma tumor… CONTINUE READING
