In the same way as other viral functions, the transcription of viral genes is frequently controlled by cellular regulatory proteins either acting alone or together with virally encoded factors. In this review, I discuss three examples of such regulation in different types of DNA viruses by different members of the POU family of transcription factors, all of which involve viruses which play a role in the aetiology of specific human diseases. These are the glial cell-specific transcription of JC… CONTINUE READING
