  1. 1. Characterization of non-coding mRNA in Epstein-Barr virus

    Author : Åsa Isaksson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Epstein-Barr virus; EBNA1; IRES; PTLD; alternative splice; nucleotide substitution; protein interactions;

    Abstract : Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a human gammaherpesvirus that infects lymphoid and epithelial cells. The virus is the causative agent of infectious mononucleosis, a self-limiting lymphoproliferative disease, and it is additionally associated with various malignancies including Burkitt?s lymphoma, Hodgkin?s disease and lymphoproliferative syndromes in immunocompromised individuals.

    Abstract : The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infects resting B-cells. This leads to an EBV driven transformation of the resting B-cell into a cell with an activated B-cell phenotype that proliferates indefinitely in vitro. Epstein-Barr Nuclear antigen 5 (EBNA5) is one out of six EBV encoded protein involved in transformation of resting B-cell. READ MORE

  4. 4. Posttransplant Lymphoproliferative Disorders : Studies of Epstein-Barr Virus, Regulatory T Cells and Tumor Origin

    Author : Amelie Kinch; Karlis Pauksens; Gunilla Enblad; Eva Baecklund; Harald Holte; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infects almost all humans and establishes lifelong latency in B cells. Posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) is a rare but serious complication after transplantation triggered by immunosuppression and often related to EBV infection. READ MORE

  5. 5. Regulation of the Epstein-Barr Virus Latent Membrane Protein 1 Expression

    Author : Pegah Johansson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Gene regulation; LMP1; Epstein-Barr virus; Herpesvirus;

    Abstract : Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a probably the most effective and successful human virus, infecting more than 90% of the world?s adult population. As with the other members of the herpesvirus family, EBV establishes latent infection in its host and persists life-long. READ MORE
