Two Epstein–Barr virus (EBV) oncoproteins cooperate to repress expression of the proapoptotic tumour-suppressor Bim: clues to the pathogenesis of Burkitt's lymphoma

Epstein–Barr virus (EBV) contributes to the development of several human cancers including the endemic form of Burkitt's lymphoma (BL). In culture, EBV induces the continuous proliferation of primary B cells as lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCLs) and if EBV-negative BL-derived cells are infected with EBV, latency-associated viral factors confer resistance to… CONTINUE READING
