The effect of dimethyl sulfoxide on activation of the major immediate early promoter of human cytomegalovirus.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) on the major immediate early promoter of human cytomegalovirus. METHODS THP-1 cells were transfected with plasmids pCAT760, pIE1-163, pIE1-183, pIE1-193 and pIE1-213, respectively, and exposed to dimethyl sulfoxide in the presence or absence of lipopolysaccharide. The extracts of these cells… (More)
