Switching viral latency to viral lysis: a novel therapeutic approach for Epstein-Barr virus-associated neoplasia.

Abstract

We describe an EBV-driven lytic system (LySED) that can be used to specifically target therapy to EBV- containing tumors. This system takes advantage of the transactivating properties of EBNA-1, a latency protein expressed in all EBV-containing cells, to drive the expression of Zta, a gene sufficient for inducing the EBV lytic cycle. Thus, EBV provides both… (More)
