Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) was found to be a potent inducer of the production of the early antigen complex (EA) and/or virus capsid antigen (VCA), determined by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Maximum synthesis of EBV antigens was induced by 0.2 mM H2O2, 5 days after a single 10-min treatment, in both B95-8 cells (30.2%) and P3HR-I cells (17.4%). These induction… CONTINUE READING
