Hairy leukoplakia (HL) is a proliferative lesion of the tongue that supports abundant Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) replication. Previous work showed high-level expression of the EBV BMRF2 gene in HL. To characterize the regulation of BMRF2 expression in HL, we mapped the 5' ends of the BMRF1 and BMRF2 transcripts and showed that BMRF2 is expressed from a novel… CONTINUE READING
