The HPV16 E7 viral oncoprotein self-assembles into defined spherical oligomers.


Despite the fact that E7 is a major transforming oncoprotein in papillomavirus, its structure and precise molecular mechanism of action remain puzzling to date. E7 proteins share sequence homology and proteasome targeting properties of tumor suppressors with adenovirus E1A and SV40 T antigen, two other paradigmatic oncoproteins from DNA tumor viruses.
