Actin-dependent activation of serum response factor in T cells by the viral oncoprotein tip
TLDR
The activation of an SRE luciferase reporter by Tip is reported, the viral oncoprotein essentially contributing to human T-cell transformation by Herpesvirus saimiri, and its role in viral oncogenesis is suggested.
Noncanonical NF-κB Activation by the Oncoprotein Tio Occurs Through a Nonconserved TRAF3-Binding Motif
TLDR
It is shown that noncanonical NF-κB activation by Tio depends on a distinct sequence motif that directly recruits tumor necrosis factor receptor–associated factor 3 (TRAF3).
Roles for TNF-receptor associated factor 3 (TRAF3) in lymphocyte functions.
Biographical Feature: Bernhard Fleckenstein
TLDR
This work aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, the objective of which is to provide real-time information about the immune response to EMTs.

Peripheral T-cell lymphoma in herpesvirus saimiri-infected tamarins: tumor cell lines reveal subgroup-specific differences.
TLDR
The lack of these activities in HVS B-SMHI-transformed cells may correlate with the reduced oncogenic phenotype of this virus in species other than tamarins.
Identification of transforming genes of subgroup A and C strains of Herpesvirus saimiri.
TLDR
The results demonstrate the oncogene nature of these two open reading frames and provide a means for studying their transforming functions independent of the rest of the H. saimiri genome.
In vitro immortalization of marmoset cells with three subgroups of herpesvirus saimiri
TLDR
The different characteristics of cell lines immortalized by herpesvirus saimiri strains belonging to different groups may help to elucidate some functions coded by the highly variable DNA region which is involved in the oncogenic process.
Downregulation of p56lck Tyrosine Kinase Activity in T Cells of Squirrel Monkeys (Saimiri sciureus) Correlates with the Nontransforming and Apathogenic Properties of Herpesvirus Saimiri in Its Natural Host
TLDR
Surprisingly, p56 lck was enzymatically inactive in primary T-cell lines derived from different squirrel monkeys, although the T cells reacted appropriately to stimulatory signals, arguing for unique species-specific conditions in T cells of S. sciureus which may interfere with the transforming activity and pathogenicity of herpesvirus saimiri subgroup C strains in their natural host.
The Product of the Herpesvirus saimiri Open Reading Frame 1 (Tip) Interacts with T Cell-specific Kinase p56lck in Transformed Cells (*)
TLDR
Investigation of early signaling events in H. saimiri-transformed T cells revealed a novel 40-kDa phosphoprotein complexed with the T cell-specific tyrosine protein kinase p56lck, termed Tip (tyrosine kinase interacting protein), which may be the second event complementing the action of StpC in a new mechanism of T cell transformation.
Substitution of ras for the Herpesvirus Saimiri STP Oncogene in Lymphocyte Transformation
TLDR
It is demonstrated that ras can substitute for the STP oncogene of HVS C488 to allow immortalized growth of primary lymphoid cells and that an activated form of ras does so more efficiently than the normal Cellular ras.
Molecular Mechanisms of the Effect of Herpesvirus saimiri Protein StpC on the Signaling Pathway Leading to NF-κB Activation*
TLDR
The results argue that the effect of StpC on NF-κB is similar to the effects of other viral proteins, “usurping” the TRAF/NIK/I-κBs kinase pathway, and reinforce the notion that the role of St pC in cell transformation by H. saimiri may be mediated by signaling that results in NF-kkB activation.
Herpesvirus Ateles Tio Can Replace Herpesvirus Saimiri StpC and Tip Oncoproteins in Growth Transformation of Monkey and Human T Cells
TLDR
Simian as well as human T lymphocytes were growth transformed by the chimeric Tio-expressing viruses, suggesting a single herpesvirus protein appears to be responsible for the oncogenic effects of herpesv virus ateles.
Stable growth transformation of human T lymphocytes by herpesvirus saimiri.
TLDR
It is reported that infection of human blood lymphocytes and thymocytes with strains of subgroup C, in contrast to viruses of the other subgroups, yields continuously proliferating T-cell lines with the phenotype of mature CD4- or CD8-positive cells.
