The Human Cytomegalovirus UL112-113 Locus Can Activate the Full Kaposi's Sarcoma-Associated Herpesvirus Lytic Replication Cycle▿

By Richard Wells, Laurence Stensland and Jeffrey Vieira


Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection of a cell containing latent Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) results in the activation of KSHV lytic replication and the production of infectious virus. In this study, we examined the HCMV genes identified as having a role in the activation of HCMV early genes for their ability to activate KSHV lytic replication. It was found that the UL112-113 locus was able to activate the complete KSHV lytic cycle, while the UL122-123 locus, encoding the IE1 and IE2 proteins, known to be strong transactivators, did not
